"Die Meisterbarden von Bree" is a well known band from the german server Vanyar. There we perform weekly concerts every friday in the Auction House in Bree for about 20-30 poeple. Every 4-6 weeks we play special concerts on Landroval and at a random base on other servers like Belegaer and Laurelin. We are also known for our cheerleading hobbit-girl group known as the "Fidels".
Last year we proudly were able to perform at Weatherstock and there we won the "People's Choice Award".

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.

We, "Die Meisterbarden von Bree", are a band of about 8-10 real players from Germany and Switzerland.
We play hits and oldies of the last 100 years, many Irish and Scottish traditionals, classical music, movie themes … anything you can imagine.
For more than five years we perform every Friday night inside the Auction Hall of Bree (Server Vanyar), from 20:00 to 22:00 Central European Time (2pm-4pm servertime). Since "Weatherstock V", we also play about once a month on Landroval, usually on saturday or sunday at 3pm servertime. The concerts are always announced on lotroartists.com and in the official LOTRO forums calendar.
One of the main attractions are our dancing hobbit lasses, the "Fidels". A group of 9 young hobbit ladies performing dances and setting the stage on fire with their awesome fireworks.
