The Prowlers

Confirmed: Oct. 31, 2016 (Archived)

from Vancouver BC

The very first rock'n'roll concert in Vancouver Canada was at the Kerrisdale Arena on June 27th, 1956 with Bill Haley & the Comets promoted by teen DJ Jack Cullen who's Owl Prowl radio program was the big thing at the time. The opening act on that show was Vancouver's first rock'n'roll band "The Prowlers" named after Cullen's radio show where the band often played "live" on radio and gained serious popularity.
