In his first year of sobriety Anders, like so many other musicians who have struggled to stay sober, had to quickly get back on the road and start performing again.

We are actively seeking volunteers with over one year of continuous sobriety. These “Friends” will lend their services to a musician in need of a safe harbor and buffer from the temptations they face on the road.

We are accepting submissions for music people in need of our program: musicians, road crew, sound and production engineers, or anyone making their living in a music venue.
Call or text (303) 710-4556 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to activate our network of sober “Friends” who are standing by to help serve as a safe buffer at your gig.
