Biography

Keister was formed by guitarist and producer Charlie Guidry and DJ/Remixer Ritchie Wallace. Introduced by a mutual friend in 2000, The combination of Guidry's background in old school breaks, classic rock, industrial, and blues was an unlikely pairing with Wallace's lean towards electro breaks, house, and underground circuit grooves. From humble beginnings that included a lone 303 and tattered fender amp, the duo found common ground as they expanded their studio to include an arsenal of various outboard gear and software-based instruments. Song elements that couldn't be recorded within the small confines of their basement project studio were laid down at Arlyn Studio, where Guidry works as a audio engineer.

By 2006, Keister counted more than 50 tracks among its catalog, twelve of which found their home on the group's debut album Doobie Careful. More than a mere showcase of skills and creativity, Doobie Careful chronicles some of Keister's strangest memories since their formation - everything from the sounds of the underground club scene (Sexy Thing and LC Electro) and nostalgia of a memory ( High School Reunion and Together ) to a blues-fed dream (Fingers & Keys ) and high energy police bust ( This Joint Right Here ).

After enlisting long-time friend and producer Dave Sellars (aka SmoovD) to remix their track "Sexy Thing", Keister invited Sellars to join the group on a permanent basis.
