54-40 is: Neil Osborne, Brad Merritt, Matt Johnson & Dave Genn, one of the most important music groups to emerge from the Canadian cultural landscape. Celebrating their thirty-year anniversary, the band has an unbelievable catalogue of hit songs, including “Baby Ran”, “Assoholic”, “She-La”, “Miss You”, “I Go Blind” and “Ocean Pearl”. Inspired by the punk/new music scene of Vancouver, 54-40 first performed at the dawn of 1981 at the Smilin’ Buddha Cabaret. Their outstanding reputation for their live performances continues today. To experience 54-40 in concert is to experience how songs have touched and continue to touch people’s lives

After 30 years, 16 releases and more than 2000 performances, the secret to 54-40’s longevity is their ability to redefine and reinvent themselves. From the MuchMusic video craze of the ‘90s to the 21st Century world of EPs, MP3s, and websites, 54-40 has embraced it all, even releasing their very own mobile phone app.

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. You do not want to miss this show!
