Keyser Soze has an original ska/rocksteady sound with strong jazz and soul influences. The 7-piece ensemble was originally formed by Jammal Tarkington and Rodney Teague. With the success of their first two releases, "Who is Keyser Soze?"
and "Revenge", the band has made a strong presence for themselves touring regularly throughout the west coast. The groupís addictive sound has placed them in the position to share the stage with some of the best drawing headliners, including Michael Franti, The Wailers, Ozomatli, The English Beat, Toots & the Maytals, Steel Pulse, The Skatalites and Burning Spear. In 2011, Keyser Soze released their latest recording, "But Not For You". The album features several striking vocal performances delivered by Tarkington and Teague. The single, "Next To Me", has received significant air-play on college radio stations and reggae radio shows across the nation. The band is currently gearing up to record a new album this summer to be released by early 2013. In the meantime, Keyser Soze will continue to bring their incomparable style & infectious live performances to summer festivals, scooter rallies, ska-fests, & professional venues across the globe.
