The North Shore will get a healthy dose of reggae, ska and soul next week when area favorites Keyser Soze hit the stage for a free show at Crystal Bay Casino Nov. 22.
The band completed its first tour of Europe earlier this summer and plans to return on an annual basis, according to its website.
“Keyser Soze is an original reggae/ska/soul band with a strong jazz background,” according to the site. “The sextet was formed in Reno, NV in 1998 by Jammal Tarkington and Rodney Teague. Keyser Soze has made a strong presence for themselves by regular regional touring and by being in the position to share the stage with some of the best drawing headliners, including Michael Franti, The English Beat, The Wailers, The Aggrolites, Steel Pulse, and the Skatalites, to name a few.”
Keyser Soze released its third full-length disc, “The Remedy,” in May.
“The recording is evidence of a band that has been playing and writing together for a considerable amount of time,” according to the site. “It’s a record that sets Keyser Soze apart from many of it’s contemporaries by showcasing a truly unique and identifiable sound. It also features many guest artists, such as The Aggrolites’ Roger Rivas and the incomparable Lauren Nagel, formerly of The Soul Captives. The release is being distributed by Rocking Records in Europe, and by Megalith Records in North America.”
