re: App: Stymied

The application submitted by Stymied is as follows:

BAND LEADERS: Apply on behalf of your band. Approval of your application DOES NOT guarantee a slot at Weatherstock. See Band Selection info below.

BAND MEMBERS: Apply with your band to keep up on Weatherstock developments on this forum.

LMB EVENT STAFF AND OFFICERS: Identify what team you'd like to help with and to access the forums.

What is your role in Weatherstock?:
Band Leader

Band Leaders and Band Members: What band are you a member of?:
The Rolling Kegs

Band Leaders: Have you performed in public as a band before? Does your band perform regularly? Have you performed at Weatherstock before? Please supply details here.:
The Rolling Kegs perform regularly at Dwarf RP events on the Laurelin Server (Ales and Tales and other events) as well as occasionally at the Green Dragon Friday event there. We performed at Archet Aid 2013, and Archet Aid 2012 as well, the big Laurelin music festival. I personally (as Tameren, my elf) have performed at Weatherstock twice before as a member of the band Andúnië, but the Rolling Kegs as a band have not.

Weatherstock Band Application Section (only Band Leaders should fill this out):

Band Registration: Band Registration opens on Monday May 19th and closes on Sunday May 25th.

FYI: Each band will be paired with a "Roadie" from our Event Staff to ensure that the bands are all ready for Weatherstock. Be sure to direct questions to your Roadie, and to answer their questions promptly.

Note: Weatherstock is a competition. Winners will be determined at the summit following the show. One prize will be awarded via an internet vote of all attendees, a second prize will be awarded via an internal vote of LMB members.

There will be no voting-with-feet and no voting-with-hope-tokens this year.

Band Selection: There are 10 performance slots for Weatherstock, to be chosen by weighted lottery. Each band gets 1 ticket for applying. Each LMB Officer may give 1 ticket to a band of their choice. The 10 bands are selected randomly from this pool.

Bands: You are available to perform a 15-minute set anytime during Weatherstock on Saturday June 14th (tentatively 1:00pm-5:00pm /servertime EDT)? Slots will be assigned randomly.:

Weatherstock Concert Series: The Weatherstock Concert Series are a set of concerts put on during the weeks leading up to Weatherstock. These are 1-hour concerts and preference for these slots will be given to bands that apply for the competition.

Note: Playing in the Weatherstock Concert Series is not required for the competition. This is an opportunity for bands to play a longer set (1-hour vs 15-minutes at the summit).

Bands: Can you schedule a Weatherstock Concert Series performance on Landroval sometime between Friday May 30th and Thursday June 12th?:

Bands: Please select possible times for your 1-hour Weatherstock Concert Series show (check all that apply).:
Mon-Thu Jun 2-5: 3-6pm

Bands: Please indiciate which of the above times would work best for you for your 1-hour Weatherstock Concert Series show.:
Weekdays 3-6pm, the earlier the better, for our European members.

Bands: Do you have a preferred location for your Weatherstock Concert Series show? (low-level areas draw the biggest crowds).:
Frerin's Court

Multi-boxing: While not prohibited, please be aware that lag can be severe at the summit during the competition, so use multi-boxing at your own risk!

Bands: how many individuals (non multi-box alts) are in your band? Note: we require a minimum of four members to be considered for the competition at the summit.:

Bands: Website (if any):

Introduce yourself or your band here.:
Myself: IC: Raggolgrimbob of the Red Mountains, at your service. Most folk call me Bob the Bard. I came to Eriador from Baraztum, the home of the Blacklocks in the far East, to find a name for myself. I quickly got caught up in music-making for the dwarrows of Thorin's Gate. OOC: Well Met! I'm Abi. I play the harp and sing in real life (and piano and Chapman Stick). Two years ago I joined Andúnië, and the music making of that wonderful group encouraged me to start writing down my own compositions and performing them in the medium of LotRO. I play primarily on Laurelin, but make regular forays into Landroval. I live in New England.

The Rolling Kegs: It started in the kinship Durin's Folk, but quickly spread to its sister-kin Khuzd Belkul. Today it's an indipendant all-dwarf band, with a selection of original arrangements, covers and compositions in the sorts of jolly or solemn modes that Dwarves like best. This would be folk, klezmer, ska, and world music among other genres, with some set to humourous lyrics. We specialize in songs written in Neo-Kuzdul, the secret language of the dwarves. The bulk of the Rolling Kegs repertoire is my own.

re: APPROVED - App: Stymied - by Byrcha

I forgot to fill out the 'band contact information' window.  I will take contacts for the band.  

In-game mail to my Landroval mains, or my Laurelin one, will do.  Guild-portal mail will also be sufficient.
