Yes, but only twice so far. We plan to start playing a monthly concert on the 2nd (usually) Sunday of each month at 1 pm Server Time. (Our next show will be a week early to avoid the last minute chaos that the music system update scheduled for the 9th is sure to cause.) So our next concert will be on the 7th of June, Bree stage, 1 pm.
No, we only started the band around the first of this year so have not yet had that opportunity.

Introduce yourself or your band here.:
I'm Zinnelle. I don't really consider myself the band leader, that would be our main transcriber, Skjalden. I am, however, the band manager as well as one of the musicians and it falls to me to set up schedules and organize events for the band (and the kinship we belong to, the Department of Holbyt Security). Our kinship was born during the TTHTI and SHIELD livestream events led by former community manager, Sapience. We play all sorts of music with the exception of rap, country (mostly), and Swedish dance band music (whatever that is). Our band was born out of several members' love the music system and music in general. We've been having a blast so far and look forward to performing many more concerts for the citizens of Landroval.
