re: App: Grymrock Grey

The application submitted by Grymrock Grey 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 Chosen Few

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 Chosen Few is an old band on Laurelin. We have been around for the better part of three years, and have played twice on Weatherstock the tprevious years (where we came in third place both years). We do have played some other gigs lately, like Winterstock and 'Archet Aid' (which we hosts), and our next gig is at the 1st of june at Laurelin. We normally play 2-3 times a week around Bree too. (do a search on youtube for us, and you will find a couple vids ).

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).:
Fri May 30: 3-6pm, Sat May 31: Noon-3pm, Sat May 31: 3-6pm, Sun Jun 1: Noon-3pm, Sun Jun 1: 3-6pm, Mon-Thu Jun 2-5: 3-6pm, Fri Jun 6: 3-6pm, Sat Jun 7: Noon-3pm, Sat Jun 7: 3-6pm, Sun Jun 8: Noon-3pm, Sun Jun 8: 3-6pm, Mon-Thu Jun 9-12: 3-6pm

Bands: Please indiciate which of the above times would work best for you for your 1-hour Weatherstock Concert Series show.:
all days up to 3/4pm, but not 4-6th of june due to work issues.

Bands: Do you have a preferred location for your Weatherstock Concert Series show? (low-level areas draw the biggest crowds).:
Prancing Pony Stage (Outside)

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?:
12 persons with a full setup, at least a full fellowship

Introduce yourself or your band here.:
Greetings to the people of Weatherstock from 'The Chosen Few'!

I am known as Grymrock Grey, and I am the bandleader of the 'The Chosen Few' from the Laurelin server.

We are well known around our server, (and hopefully on other servers too? ) and we have also participated two times at Weatherstock before (and came in third place both times). We were also honored to be part of the big Winterstock festival this winter. We are what you might call a barn-dance-band from the outer areas of Breeland, and we play everything that do have a dance beat to it (jigs/bluegrass/blues and dancetunes). We transcribe all our own tunes, and we have also the occasional lyric to follow the tune. (We were the ones with the 'Living next door to Gandalf' tune last year ).

Once a year we are the hosts of an event called 'Archet Aid' ( ) were we are honored to have some of the bands that have participated in Weatherstock before, entertain the poor farmers of Archet (and guests of course). This year will be the fourth time it will be run, so hope we will see ya all there too! :-)

Hope to see ya all on the top of Weathertop dancing your socks off (hobbits excused ofcourse) to our lively tunes.

Best regards
Grymrock Grey
- The Chosen Few
