Toy Zebra is showing its rock stripes to Nanaimo audiences.

The band has two evening performances at the Queen’s Friday and Saturday (Oct. 19-20).

The band, consisting of Cam Wilkinson, Callum Jackson and Tanner Aguiar, began its career on Vancouver Island in 2007 under the name Crimson Reign.

In 2010 the band members moved to Vancouver to immerse themselves in the Lower Mainland music scene.

Toy Zebra began as a primarily heavy metal band but their sound evolved over the past few years to embrace a wider range of genres, including classic rock and dance.

The evening at the Queen’s will consist of Toy Zebra original songs, such as For Never, Gone To Waste and I Don’t Need Your Love. The band will also perform a variety of hits from the 60s to the 2000s. They’ll cover songs by artists such as Billy Idol, Van Halen and more contemporary music by The Killers, Muse and the Black Eyed Peas.

Toy Zebra performs from 9:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.  No cover before 10 p.m., $10 after.
