Every Wednesday at Arts in the Park noon hour, there will be a kids oriented show. In addition to a performance from Speed Control and an art demonstration by Harreson Tanner, there will be an employee from the Yukon Literacy Coalition reading a story to the kids and providing free books to the public.
Straight out of -40 degrees in Canada’s Yukon, Graeme Peters, brother Jody Peters, and Ian March formed the power trio Speed Control. The three members all come from a jazz and classical background but have turned to their true passion – rock n’ roll.
In addition to shows of their original music, they have a passion for music education and have played concerts in 400 schools to upwards of 200,000 students. They are booked to play 200 school concerts in 2017-2018. They’ve written and recorded 50 rock anthems with schools. Along with playing festivals, theatres, and clubs, Speed Control’s signature rock camp is in high demand, working with kids from 8 to 85 and all skill levels. Speed Control also delivers workshops and performance coaching to young bands. They are youth engagement specialists!
