Straight out of – 40 degrees in Canada’s Yukon, the power trio SPEED CONTROL hits hard, fast and with a sound some compare to Nirvana, and even early Police.

Speed Control is not only a hard-hitting rock trio. They have dedicated themselves to furthering music education and bringing music back into kids’ lives which has led to a full endorsement by Yamaha Music. In the summer, between club and festival shows, Speed Control teaches “RAWK Camps” which are partnered with Yamaha Canada, giving the kids brand new instruments to play, and equipment to run the camps. This allows Speed Control to visit many remote communities.
