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.

The Runic Knights kinship was formed on Brandywine server during the beta in 2007 as a large social kinship.
The Runic Knights Orchestra (RKO) was formed by Steeloak in 2009 to take advantage of the music system of LOTRO, and to help entertain kinmates at kin events.
RKO's first foray over to Landroval server was for Weatherstock 2012, and they reappeared for Weatherstock 2013.
Currently, our roster consists of 8 regular members (Steeloak, Primrosiah, Pinoh, Sanicle, Grimbori, Belathriel, Zaxin, Khaladreth) and anywhere from 1-5 alts as needed.
Since November, 2013, RKO has been performing regularly in front of the Bird & Baby Inn on Tuesday nights. Currently, we perform on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month from 9pm to 10:30pm /servertime, and hope to soon coordinate with GHMS to do joint concerts on the 5th Tuesday of the month.
