Our story began in 2014 when a local musician named Zakk Coss passed away and a tragic car accident. Zakk was an avid musician in a local hip hop group named “North By Nature”. After Zakk’s passing North By Nature member “Nick Vance” and Five Acre Co. founder Lance Goddard planned as a one-off memorial event that came to fruition as “The Five Acre Shaker”. Since 2014, the Five Acre Shaker has grown into the Alberni Valley’s premier music festival. Each year raising money for the Zattzoo Project-Society which supports local youth in their musical endeavors.
Over the years, Five Acre Co. began to collect sound and lighting gear to use at the Shaker. In 2020, when COVID-19 shuttered the live music scene to a standstill, Five Acre Co. started preparing for its return by purchasing a full inventory of sound and lighting equipment as well as a Stageline SL100 mobile stage.
The stage has been used at events like the Port Alberni Toy Run, the Port Alberni Fall Fair, and a Totem Pole Dedication Ceremony. We’re already booking into 2022 so contact us if you need a stage, sound, lighting, or any other event service to help transform your vision into an unforgettable experience.
