“When audience members – in the middle of the performance – approach me and say, 'Please bring them back!' I take note – and that’s what was happening when I presented Speed Control this year. I started writing to their manager about next season while this season’s show was still underway. Such is the dynamic of these three talented, witty and energetic chaps.”- John Miller, Artistic Producer, Stratford Summer Music
Speed Control takes control of the stage with a power that will make you jump up and dance. This audience member said it best, “Speed Control isn’t just a rock band, they are a full on show!” Speed Control is vibrant onstage energy filled with smart humour, emotion and spirit. Straight out of Canada’s Yukon, Graeme Peters, brother Jody Peters, and Ian March formed the power trio Speed Control. They are multi-instrumentalists, touring musicians and educators who love nothing more than to share their passion and knowledge of music in concerts, workshops, and residencies. Their newest offering is a one day camp for grown-ups, the best team-building exercise ever. They’ve played to from the east coast to the west coast and across northern Canada. Performance highlights include Band-Aid at the Surrey Arts Centre; World Suicide Prevention Day Concert in Iqaluit; Atlin Arts & Music Festival; the National Arts Centre’s Northern Scene and every concert they’ve played! They were finalists for Best New Group in the inaugural Searchlight Competition on CBC Radio with their song, Tent City, and were recently featured in the Vancouver Sun.
