Something For The Weekend: The Keepers


Good afternoon, Sir... perhaps a little Something For The Weekend?

The Keepers describe themselves as Indie Mod N Roll, with Psychedelic Britpop. They were founded in 2015, by singer/songwriter and guitarist Jordan Jones, and accompanied by Tonner Pettitt on bass guitar, Liam Taylor also on guitar and Taylor Hart on drums. The Keepers are a fusion of 60's Pop Melodies and Psychedelia, 70's Punk energy, 80's Madchester madness, 90's Britpop and 00's Indie Rock. They list their main influences as The Beatles, David Bowie, The Kinks, The Jam and Supergrass.

The Keepers released their debut EP, No Exit in October 2015 on CD and iTunes, and have since been gigging and touring across the UK, bringing their share of retro goodness to audiences everywhere. 

They have played sold out shows at venues such as The Picturedrome and The Craufurd Arms, supporting the likes of Noasis, The Total Stone Roses, Inspiral Carpets' frontman Tom Hingley and The Kar-pets, The Jam DRC and VANT.

The band have recently been sponsored and endorsed by Hofner and plan to head back into the studio to record new material in the near future. Show original message Make sure you catch a show soon! (Deets below!)
