Bands rockin’ at George Little Park this weekend

Terrace Riverboat Days Concerts in the Park features local bands as well as 54-40 and Lana Roi

Concerts in the Park is sure to be a hit at Riverboat Days this weekend, with live bands playing throughout the upcoming weekend, Aug. 5-6.

The headliner is 54-40, an alternative rock band that started in East Vancouver and became widely known in the 90s, with hits including “Ocean Pearl”, “Nice to Luv You”, “One Day in Your Life”, and the folky “Baby Ran”.

Eric Alper, publicist for the band, says its the soundtrack of the 90s in Canada.

“From the opening guitar riff of Ocean Pearl, or the unforgettable baritone hook of I Go Blind, if you grew up in Canada in the 90’s, 54-40 was the soundtrack to your childhood,” he said.

But 54-40 isn’t the only rockin’ band taking the stage this weekend.

Lana Roi, also known as Theresa Fenger, is kicking off the show at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday.

She’s a hip hop and pop style singer originally from Nova Scotia but moved to Terrace and went to Caledonia Secondary School.

Terrace’s own One Nite Stand takes the stage next, playing at 1:15 p.m., followed by Dale Simpson at 2 p.m., and Coastal Drifters at 2:45 p.m.

The music continues Saturday afternoon with After Hours at 3:30 p.m., Ryan & The Ryders at 4:30 p.m., Chekyrd Past at 5:15 p.m., and Play Back at 6 p.m. before the headliner 54-40 takes the stage at 7 p.m.

Sunday will be Church in the Park at 11 a.m., with music by “The Not Forgotten Project”.


Lana Roi, also known as Theresa Fenger, kicks off Concerts in the Park at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 5, at George Little Park.
