54-40 is one of the most important popular music groups to emerge from the Canadian cultural landscape. Celebrating its 30-year anniversary – a remarkable achievement in itself – the band has an unbelievable catalogue of hit songs, including "Baby Ran," "I Go Blind" and "Ocean Pearl." Lead by chief songwriter Neil Osborne, 54-40 has carved out a legacy of gold and platinum albums and an outstanding reputation for their live performances that carries through to this day. The secret to their longevity is their ability to redefine and reinvent themselves, taking longtime fans on a ride that is bound to pick 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: each show is an extraordinary affair that bridges the gaps of generations through a shared love of music.
