Meet Savo 'Lass
What's the story behind your band's founding?
It started with Tolo Imladris, I think. The Elvish themed RP music and dance event in Imladris. Myself, Laaleth, and Beliaveil formed a small trio called Neled Lind Eledhrim, or Three Beautiful Elves, in the westron tongue. Not too long after that, two of our dear friends Herumacil and Halgoreth began showing interest in the band, to the point where we decided one night that we would form a new band called Savo 'Lass!
How did your band get its name?
We were discussing potential band names about a week ago, and Laaleth suggested Savo 'Lass, which is Elvish for Have Joy. We all agreed that it was a good choice! There were a few other suggestions as well, but Savo 'Lass was the most popular among us.
How did your members meet one another?
Ah, an excellent question. Of the five members of Savo 'Lass, four of us are in Second Breakfast, and that is how we all met and know one another. Herumacil is a dear friend of ours who is not in Second Breakfast, but a most treasured member of Savo 'Lass. I met Herumacil at Elvenses one Monday night several months ago, but I cannot say the same for the others.
How would you describe your band's music?
Savo 'Lass enjoys playing jazz arrangements as well as big band and swing arrangements. We also play beautiful music that can be sad, soothing, and enchanting.
How do you decide which songs to play?
Since we have not yet only played at Tolo Imladris, we have not really had a system for choosing songs. Currently, I have a playlist made for our Winterfest portion, consisting of 17 songs, the combined times of which are a little under an hour. I plan to show my friends and get their opinions before anything is final. I do some of the deciding on my own, but I always ask my friends for suggestions and feedback.
Do you have a signature song?
I cannot say for certain just yet...however, I personally adore a song that we play called "Illusion"
What's the highlight of your band's time together?
We have not spent much time together as of yet, but all of the time we have spent together has been memorable. I love playing with Laaleth, Beliaveil, Herumacil, and Halgoreth.
Do you have any stories about a time when things didn't go so well?
Nothing has happened as of yet that I would consider not so well.
Does your band play a regular concert? If so, when and where?
No, but it may be possible that we do in the future.
Does your band have a website, Twitter feed, Youtube channel, or links to any performances?
Not as of yet.
What's the one thing we should know about your band above all else?
Savo 'Lass means have joy, and that is exactly what we want everyone to have!
Is there anything else you'd like to tell us about your group?
Our hope is to create a joyous atmosphere when we play our songs. We hope to delight the free peoples of all races, be they Elves, Men, Hobbits, Dwarves, or Beorning.
