Keyser Soze has an original ska/rocksteady sound with strong jazz and soul influences. The 8-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 group’s 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 But Not For You. The album features several striking vocal performances delivered by Tarkington and Teague. The single, "Next To Me", has already received significant air-play on college radio stations and reggae radio shows across the nation. This 10 song LP was one of their most heavily promoted albums to date through video, file sharing sites, & relentless touring. Keyser Soze will continue to bring their incomparable style & infectious live performances to summer festivals, scooter rallies, ska-fests, & professional venues across the globe.
