re: Firebrands Band Profile


I had to complete a questionnaire for the Shirefest band entry.  It is in a section of the Crickhollow Music page the general public cant see so I reproduced our profile here.

What's the story behind your band's founding?  

We will let you know five minutes before out slotted time.   Seeds and Stems kin started a band a year or so ago but membership changes and scheduling made it difficult to organize.  Firebrands members are all folks from several kins who gather to play music for the fun of it and have never played as an entire group together till now.  

How did your band get its name?

A few of us we were sitting around playing country western tunes on horseback one evening and a nice hunter built us a fire..  By coincidence, we were all wearing red and the name popped up, like the flame in front of us, our groups pop up, warm the spirit and are gone till the next time.

How did your members meet one another?

Easy..someone starts playing and asks ''Hey care to join me''  Before long we have a band of 2 to 9  members and 4 hours later we look around and say ''Is it really that late?''

How would you describe your band's music?

Hmmm ...a mural  done by 16 chimpanzees with  spray paint  of every color of Sherwin WIlliams at their disposal.  

How do you decide which songs to play?

Unlike our normal sessions, this process was not very diplomatic.  There were a couple of requests by members but mostly picked by me (Beorhere).  These are songs are similar to those we like to play and perhaps have not been heard in Middle Earth before.  That was the goal.

Do you have a signature song?

It would be a capital ''X'' if we did.

What's the highlight of your band's time together?

Every time we play its a highlight.  Everyone gets to hear something they want to hear.  Music should be fun and that's always the goal. 

Do you have any embarrassing stories about a time when things didn't go so well?

Probably after this concert....

Does your band play a regular concert?  If so, when and where?

No, but we play a heck of an irregular one.  Like the fire we are named after we may pop up anywhere.

Does your band have a website, Twitter feed or links to any performances?

We use Seeds And Stems Website as our common link right now.

What's the one thing we should know about your band above all else?

We have members from 4 US time zones (still working on Alaska and Hawaii), U. K. Europe, Australia, and recently from China.  Finding common times to play as a large group is hard but finding common times to play together is easy.

Is there anything else you'd like to mention?

Those who come for the fun of it should not be disappointed. All other bets are off.
