Saturday, March 2, 8 p.m.—RUTLAND— The legendary Vermont-based band 8084 will bring their “Love Not Hate” project to the Paramount Theatre in downtown Rutland this Saturday. To commemorate the year the group formed, tickets are $19.82.

This show is bittersweet as the Billboard and International award winning band recently announced that they have no future plans for touring or performing live as a group after this summer.

Energetic, charismatic and dedicated, 8084 have been exciting audiences and selling out venues since 1982. Sharing the stage with such acts as Aldo Nova, Toto, April Wine, Warrant, Edgar Winter, Blue Oyster Cult, Henry Lee Summer, the group has toured throughout the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Southern states, as well as Quebec and the Maritime Provinces.

A dynamic team comprised of lead vocalist Randy Smith and Grammy-nominated producer-guitarist-vocalist André Maquera, 8084 also boasts the talents of bassist-vocalist Frank Barnes, drummer-percussionist Gary Spaulding, and guitarist-vocalist Ry Malroux.

The purpose of the Love Not Hate project is to raise community awareness to relevant social problems such as hunger, addiction, hate, and the homeless as they perform concerts in various geographies across Vermont and beyond.

The band works together with music venues to identify a local food shelter, charity, or family in need from those regions to provide assistance through fundraising efforts.

Tickets for the Paramount show are available both online at as well as the Paramount Box Office located at 30 Center St. in downtown Rutland, or patrons may charge by phone by calling (802) 775-0903.
