Identity Crisis rocks park performance

The young and aspiring band Identity Crisis kicked off the 2015 Performances in the Park schedule Thursday evening.

The young and aspiring band Identity Crisis kicked off the 2015 Performances in the Park schedule Thursday evening.

They entertained a crowd of about 300 people on a perfect summer evening in the lakecity with a variety of cover songs as well as original music.

The progressive alternative rock band consists of Ilan Peimer as lead vocalist, Kayne Robinson on bass guitar and Clayton Charleyboy playing guitar and back up vocalist.

Their performance included covers such as Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall and Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ By The Way as well as showcasing some of their newly written music.

“We did pretty much all cover songs but a couple months ago begin writing our own music and we now try to play an equal ratio of covers to originals,” said Peimer.

The guys were happy with how the performance went and received plenty of positive feedback from friends and family after the show.

The trio are all 18 and recently graduated from Lake City Secondary and have come a long way in a short time period.

“Clayton and Kayne began jamming together about 18 months ago and they heard that I could sing,” said Ilan. “At first I never thought too much of it but when I decided to meet up with them and saw them in person I was impressed and we all hit it off from there.”

While Robinson and Charleyboy are born and raised locally, Peimer arrived in Williams Lake from Cape Town, South Africa four years ago when his dad took a job as a doctor in the lakecity.

Identity Crisis have been very busy playing local gigs all over town including the Stampede Street Party, busking at the Bean Counter, playing in front of their high school and all kinds of other local events.

Favourite musicians for Ilan include Black Keys and Kings of Leon, Kayne’s top bands include Tool and Radiohead and Clayton likes to rock out to Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Pearl Jam.

They were headed to a recording studio in Quesnel on Sunday to record their first album which includes 10 songs.
