54-40 returns to headline Bella Coola Music Festival this summer

54-40 is one of the most important popular music groups to emerge from the Canadian cultural landscape. Celebrating their thirty-year anniversary last year, 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. Each show is an extraordinary affair that bridges the gaps of generations through a shared love of music.

In thirty years, the band has toured throughout the world logging more than 2000 performances, released sixteen albums, received numerous awards and achieved almost a dozen Top-10 hit singles.

When asked about their track record, drummer Matt Johnson once commented, “One thing we hear consistently is ‘I didn’t know you guys had so many hits,’ but we just consider ourselves songwriters. We enjoy the craft and whether we’re trying to write an eight-minute epic or just a three-minute pop song, it’s very enjoyable for us and we’re not afraid to do either.” It is with great pride that the Bella Coola Music Festival committee brings 54-40 back to our stage on Saturday, July 19, 2014. See you there!
