EXCLUSIVE: Home and Away receives big shake up as Felicity's band friends visit Summer Bay

But tensions are at an all-time high.

By Tamara Cullen
It's a good old-fashioned street party in Summer Bay this week when Felicity's friends drop by for an impromptu visit.
Returning from a meeting with her solicitor, Felicity (Jacqui Purvis) announces to boyfriend Tane (Ethan Browne) that she is formally the new co-owner of Salt!
The couple's celebration is cut short, however by a concert outside their door. Tane is stunned, but Felicity greets the four-piece band called Lyrik happily – they're old friends!
Making themselves at home, Tane makes a hasty exit while Felicity catches up.

Bass player Eden (Stephanie Panozzo) and guitarist Remi (Adam Rowland) explain that the band has been on the road for more than a year, but it's been tough. Friendships are strained and everyone is burnt out.
Then, there's keyboardist and songwriter Kirby (Angelina Thomson) whose relationship with Bob (Rob Mallett), the arrogant lead singer – is on bumpy ground.
"The band's relationship is turbulent and Kirby is caught between a rock and a hard place" Angelina tells TV WEEK.

Sensing the tension, Felicity suggests they play at Salt's re-launch party! The bandmates agree to the gig, but what will Salt co-owner Mackenzie (Emily Weir) say?
Unfortunately, Felicity's wild idea is met with backlash from Mac. They have no money to pay the band and it doesn't suit their clientele.
After some convincing, Felicity wins the argument. Mac issues a warning: if the band night fails, it's on her.
The re-launch finally party arrives and everyone is nervous. The customers roll in, but Lyrik are nowhere to be seen. Felicity is furious. Where are they?
Just as she concedes the night a failure, the lights dim and the music blares through the speakers. Lyrik jump out on stage and wow the crowd – but one person isn't impressed: Cash.

It's clear he has a history with the band as he turns to walk away. Instead, he comes face-to-face with Eden. She smiles wide and jumps into his arms. Cash (Nicholas Cartwright), looks like he's seen a ghost.
What's going on?
Home and Away airs Monday to Thursday at 7pm on Channel Seven
