Next week it’s ‘FEAST OR FAMINE’ on The BACK LOUNGE. Have you been lucky enough to have some work? How was it? Is it great to be back but it also feels more exhausting and more stressful somehow than before…have we lost our mojos and gone soft?! If you relate, then no – it’s not just you. Our esteemed guests this week are Jeordie Shenton & Adam Ficek at Tonic Rider www.tonicmusic/tonic-rider ?All welcome. DM to join ? Wed 18th August 6pm BST

How can we make it stick and is there a dark side to all this we need to be mindful of? We’re joined this week by special guests Malle Kaas and Erin Lynch from WILM (Women in Live Music) – they’ll be sharing their experience of life on the road. Join us, this is an important one.
