ABOUT THE BACKSTAGE PASS SERIES
Sharing stories, ideas, and techniques in an intimate setting, Backstage Pass events are an essential element for understanding the music business from a 360 degree perspective. Each event includes an experienced moderator to guide the conversation and concludes with a question- and-answer session.
The insight and advice given through the program offers professional career development to individuals and communicates best practices to music business leaders. The Backstage Pass program guests vary from local representatives to visiting artists and industry professionals working or performing in Memphis. Like the MRC itself, Backstage Pass is a rare opportunity for musicians to talk frankly about the realities of the industry with the artists and profession als who can expound on lessons learned from successes and missteps. Attendees get first-hand accounts, and direct answers to the questions that may help guide their careers.
