Biography

There are 2 Impalers

1) D-Beat from Austin, Texas with members of Mammoth Grinder, Hatred Surge, Deskonocidos and Criaturas.

2) The Impalers are a Reggae band based in San Francisco, CA, featuring veteran musicians from Skankin’ Pickle, Let’s Go Bowling, The Rudiments, 78 RPM’s and The Inciters. These seasoned pros come together to create a new, energetic and authentic sound steeped in the traditions of Jamaican reggae, rocksteady and dub.

Originally formed as a studio band for the Axe Records label, The Impalers created tracks for vocalists and instrumentalists and released a number of singles to critical acclaim, including “Darling I Will Stay,” which featured Alana Turner, a vocalist from world-renowned Northern Soul outfit The Inciters.

Interest in The Impalers grew from a number of successful shows in California, featuring the core rhythm section and a rotating lineup of guest musicians. As the buzz and demand for more live shows grew, they soon realized the studio could no longer hold them and they wanted to do more than back up artists. In 2006 they recruited members to round out and lock in their lineup, which now consists of Cindy Cook (Lead Vocals), David Wiens (Bass) Brent Willson (Guitar, Vocals) Lars Nylander (Organ, Piano, Vocals) Randy Odell (Drums) Jason Boyte (Trumpet, Percussion, Vocals) and Timmy Bailey (Tenor Sax, Baritone Sax, Percussion, Vocals).
