We're a rock and a hard place and we are in the lotro music scene for quite a while now. We play all kinds of music and sometimes -as our name suggest- rock or even hard music. The topics of our song lyrics focus loseley around lotro, but we don't take the lore too seriously.
We're hoping for a nice party at the preconcert series, so bring a good mood, enough drinks and food, an umbrella (it always rains in Bree!) and maybe even your hanky in case you're a tad emotional.
