54-40 and Tweed Simmons family coming to Harrison Hot Springs

In its ten years, the Music Therapy Ride has raised more than $500,000. That money goes toward creating musical therapy programs used by therapists in hospitals and treatment centres, sometimes right at patients’ bedsides.

But when the ride rolls from Fraser Downs into Harrison Hot Springs on September 8, it will be all about the rock and roll.

Canadian rockers 54-40, who are celebrating their 30 year anniversary, will perform at the Lakeside Cafe. And coming along for the ride are Sophie, Nick and Shannon Tweed-Simmons.

54-40 is lead by chief songwriter Neil Osborne, and brings a legacy of gold and platinum albums and an outstanding reputation for their live performances that carries through to this day.

Of course, the Tweed-Simmons are best known for their hit reality television series, “Gene Simmons Family Jewels”.  Earlier this year, Sophie became involved with Metro Vancouver’s first child protection centre, Sophie’s Place, which was named after Sophie and is now open in Surrey.

Nick graduated from Pitzer College in California with Honours in English and World Literature. He is a Screen Actors Guild member, has appeared in a Dr. Pepper commercial and has performed voiceover work.  Canadian-born Shannon Tweed-Simmons is an actress, model, mother and wife.

The 11th annual Music Therapy Ride is open to motorcycles and cars, and will leave Fraser Downs Racetrack at 9:30 a.m. September 8, escorted by the VPD’s Motorcycle Drill Team to Harrison Hot Springs’ Lakeside Café.

There will be a barbecue lunch, live auction and an acoustic performance by 54-40.

Also of note, the early bird rate has been extended.  Register soon and receive an early bird rate of $99.00 per bike.
