Vancouver rockers 54-40 perform March 30 at the Port Theatre

Popular rock band set to play at the Port Theatre in Nanaimo

NANAIMO — It’s hard to believe that Vancouver rockers 54-40 have been together for 30 years.

The band has an unbelievable catalogue of hit songs, and will be performing them at the Port Theatre in Nanaimo on March 30.

54-40 first performed at the dawn of 1981 at the Smilin’ Buddha Cabaret in Vancouver.  After 30 years, 16 releases and more than 2,000 performances, the secret to 54-40’s longevity is their ability to redefine and reinvent themselves. Their outstanding reputation for their live performances continues today and if you want to catch the band you had better act quick, there are only a limited amount of tickets left to see the evolutionary group.

The band which includes Neil Osborne, Brad Merritt, Matt Johnson and Dave Genn is one of the most important music groups to emerge from the Canadian cultural landscape.

54-40 was the winner of The Western Canadian Music Awards — Hall Of Fame Award in 2011.

If you want to celebrate the legacy of one of Canada’s all time favorite bands, you can get tickets for the show on Friday, March 30 at the Port Theatre Box Office at 250-754-8550 or online at
