ZeeCeeKeely is an American Reggae band from Tucson Arizona. ZeeCeeKeely was formed by the frontman and the band’s namesake, Zachary C. Keely. Having an extensive musical career through his teens and early 20s, in multiple local bands, the Tucson native set out to form his own project. Zach found several friends and individuals with the perfect blend of: talent, dedication, passion, and devotion, to help spread and play his music. By blending his messages of peace, respect, reflection, and rights, with the sounds of roots reggae, rock, dancehall, and jazz, ZeeCeeKeely is promoting a music and lifestyle that it’s quickly gaining traction in these trying times.
