Impala


There are different groups called Impala. 1) Impala was formed in Memphis, TN in the early 1990s. Their first long player, 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. Read more on Last.fm

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. After few years hiatus, the band has reformed with the addition of former Afghan Whigs drummer, Paul Buchignani and Bobby "Blue" Bland sideman, Marc Franklin on trumpet and keyboard. 2) Impala formed in the seventies in Rwanda. They played until the problems that led to the 1994 genocide arose.

They recorded many cassettes and are still popular. They sing mostly in Kinyarwanda but also in Swahili and French. They've performed in different European countries such as Germany and Italy. Read more on Last.fm.
