Welcome dear listener, we are The Spooks! But don't be afraid, we are here to bring you sounds, joy, enlightenment and a good time. All we ask is that you loan us your mind and ears for a little while and absorb our sonic gumbo of funky rock, soul and psychedelia. We have no agenda, we serve no cause. Our music reflects on our hopes, fears, inspirations and frustrations. It reflects the human spirit and all its facets. So, open your ears, free your mind, and shake that azz.

The Sinister Minister
The Spooks are a heavy soul band from the DC Metro area consisting of Duane Bullock on drums, Jimmie Void and Quentin Pagtakhan on guitars, Wes Kilgore on bass, and vocals and Tyrone on vocals. Google "OG" and chances are you'll see a picture of Duane. Duane's pockets are deep and stanky. Jimmie is the resident shaman and spiritual backbone of The Spooks. If you find yourself getting lost in the mystic heights of our music, there's a high probability that one of Jimmie's blistering solos has led you there. And Wes Kilgore is the songsmith and lyrical mastermind behind The Spooks. Wes has been in bands that have shared the stage with everyone from Green Day to The Wailers.
The Spooks are excited that you've chosen to explore our little corner of the musical universe. If you're enjoying the ride, we hope that you'll take a minute to sign our mailing list, and we'll keep you posted on all of our latest gigs and releases -- and maybe throw in a little free swag for good measure.
