Impala was formed in Memphis, TN in the early 1990s. Their first
longplayer, El Rancho Reverbo, was co-produced by the legendary Roland
Janes (Jerry Lee Lewis’ guitar player and session player at Sun
Records) at Sam Phillips Recording Service. After receiving rave
reviews and gaining exposure playing one-niters across the South East,
Impala was picked up by West Coast label, Estrus Records. The band’s
first release on Estrus was Kings of the Strip, recorded at famed
Easley Studio in Memphis. Following the release of this album, Impala
toured relentlessly, appearing at Garage festivals such as Garage
Shock, Sleezefest, Crap Out and Dixie Fried and appearing on shows
with guitar legends Dick Dale and Davie Allen and the Arrows. Over the
past decade numerous films and television shows have featured the
band’s music. Most notable is Impala’s arrangement of Henry Mancini’s
“Experiment in Terror” in the George Clooney’s, Chuck Barris biopic,
Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.
