Celebrate anniversary with 54-40

One of the most important popular music groups to emerge from the Canadian cultural landscape performs March 31 in Courtenay.

ENDURING VANCOUVER BAND 54-40 includes Courtenay on its tour schedule March 31 at the Sid Williams Theatre as it celebrates its 30th anniversary.

One of the most important popular music groups to emerge from the Canadian cultural landscape performs March 31 in Courtenay.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, 54-40 is booked at the Sid Williams Theatre.

The band has a lengthy catalogue of hit songs, including Assoholic, She-La, Miss You, Baby Ran, I Go Blind and Ocean Pearl.

Led by Neil Osborne, 54-40 has carved out a legacy of gold and platinum albums and an outstanding reputation for their live performances.

The secret to their longevity is their ability to redefine and reinvent themselves, picking up new young fans on the way. To experience 54-40 in concert is to experience how songs have touched and continue to touch people’s lives.

From their first gig on New Year’s Eve 1981 at the Smilin’ Buddha Cabaret, 54-40 has its roots in Vancouver. They were immersed in the MuchMusic video craze of the 1990s and the growing digital worlds of CDs, MP3s, and websites. They have embraced it all, now releasing their very own mobile phone application.

54-40 is the winner of the Western Canadian Music Awards Hall of Fame Award (2011) along with numerous other awards and almost a dozen Top-10 hit singles.
