Lana Patrin is one of the unsung heroes of the music scene in Wollongong, involved with many events that have fostered our blossoming arts culture - on Sunday 15th December she continues her "Soul Bird Lounge" sessions, with Bex Chilcott (Ruby Boots) and local fav, Kay Proudlove.
"I really want my own venue, that's been a dream of mine for a very long time, but I've got a really good backyard, you know, just chuck some couches out, some mats and cushions - it's really nice." said Lana.
"I'm kind of picky with who I have - I'm a big fan of music and that's why I got into it because there's just so much talent out there. That's why I started at The Bowlo (Scarborough Wombarra Bowling Club), just to get bands to come and play - it was a bit of a selfish thing... these people are coming to play for me... yeah, I'll put it on."
