Meet Savo 'Lass
What's the story behind your band's founding?
Savo 'Lass began with the core group called Neled Lind Eledhrim. We have grown and added two more members since that time, and chose the name Savo 'Lass for our new band. Savo 'Lass means Have Joy, in Elvish speech.
How did your band get its name?
We discussed possible names for the band shortly after deciding that we would make it a reality to be a band. We all agreed that Savo 'Lass would be fitting and a nice touch, given that 4/5 of us are Elves. Halg is 1/4 Elf, I believe. Hehehe.
How did your members meet one another?
We all met in Second Breakfast, as well as during Tolo Imladris long ago. Currently, 3 members of Savo 'Lass are still in Second Breakfast, and 2 members are in Quende Nosse.
How would you describe your band's music?
We originally started with jazz and big band arrangements, but have since evolved to play a much wider variety of music. Anything from beautiful and slow, to fast and fun!
How do you decide which songs to play?
I usually do all of the song searching and transcribing. I usually take care of all testing involved as well, with the help of Laaleth and sometimes with the help of other band members. I always make sure that the entire band likes a song before I add it to the permanent library of songs.
Do you have a signature song?
Not just yet, I don't think. However, that could very well change after Shirefest 2018 when we unveil many songs with lyrics (A big change for Savo 'Lass)
What's the highlight of your band's time together?
We generally only play one to three times per year, and each and every time we get together and play is a highlight to me.
Do you have any stories about a time when things didn't go so well?
Our very first performance at Winterfest in 2016 started off well, but became shaky towards the end due to PC issues and network issues causing disconnects and crashing. Things seem to have been much smoother since then.
Does your band play a regular concert? If so, when and where?
We do not currently play regular concerts, though there is a slight possibility that this could change in the future.
Does your band have a website, Twitter feed, Youtube channel, or links to any performances?
We do have a website, though it is not yet being used actively by anyone other than myself.http://savolass.gamerlaunch.com/
What's the one thing we should know about your band above all else?
We play for the enjoyment of others! We hope that everyone who listens enjoys it in their own way.
Is there anything else you'd like to tell us about your group?
Savo 'Lass looks forward to playing for you! We are all friends and enjoy the game in many other ways. Music is very special to us, and we hope that the music we play resonates within you.
