Ben McPeek Jr. will bring a lifetime of memories of the Canadian music industry to our May meeting. His father, Ben McPeek Sr. was a composer, arranger, conductor, and pianist.  He arranged the song “Ca-na-da” for Expo 67 and created a unique sound library for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.  Later, he founded the Canadian record company  Nimbus 9 one of whose clients was The Guess Who. Ben Senior and Junior often travelled through the Junction.  Today, Ben Jr, a music composer himself, lives in the Junction Triangle.
