The Heroine
The Heroine

Some bands define themselves with style; others prefer to use relentless touring. Still others seek notoriety with the quality of songwriting and musicianship, or with on-stage acrobatics and off-stage antics. It is rarely that a band comes along that possesses a piece of each of these “defining qualities,” yet remains defined by something else altogether: Its work ethic. San Antonio’s The Heroine is one such band. Working towards lofty (but achievable) goals is a credo that each member of this hammer-swinging, five-piece rock ‘n’ roll juggernaut lives each of his days by (four of the band’s members are contractors, while one is an aircraft mechanic). Whether the band is on or off the road, The Heroine works hard, and works its listeners harder.

Powerful. Animated. Rawk!

"It's like seeing the Police before they broke in '77.
A band with this much drive is unstoppable."

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. Quoted as being "Parka Punk" by Stuart Derdeyn of
the BC Province, Speed Control, made up of brothers Graeme (guitar/vox) and Jody Peters (bass/vox), and drummer Ian March, is known for their live shows and their passion for playing hard, fast and REAL ROCK!!

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 some of which do not have a music store.

Speed Control also supplements their winter touring by bringing their
patented "Rags to RAWK" history of rock n' roll into elementary, middle, and high schools. This show follows the journey of rock from 1898 to present day.
