McNeill rocker stars in Green Day tribute

Marvin Westrum makes his mark as Billy Joe Armstrong in Campbell River performance

One of Port McNeill’s sons is taking to the stage in Campbell River June 17.

Marvin Westrum stars in Salute to Green Day, a tribute to the Grammy Award winning punk band.

Westrum, part of the trio 21 Guns, portrays charismatic Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong in the performance. Jayme Langen plays Mike Dirnt and Gary Langen is Tre Cool.

“We look like Green Day. We sound like Green Day. We act like Green Day. And Like Billie Joe would say: Rock and Roll is supposed to be about rebellion, it’s supposed to be dangerous. That’s the side that we choose. We’re not looking to make everybody happy,” said 21 Guns in a press release. When asked what people can expect from their performance, 21 Guns has only these words: “Rage and Love”.

Tickets for the concert are on sale now at tidemarktheatre.com or by phone at 1-800-994-0555. Visit 21 Guns On-line: www.21guns.ca
