We get by with a little help from our friends.

On March 16 and 17 30+ bands from Kansas City and Lawrence will overtake Austin, TX at the annual South by Southwest Music Conference. But before we head there we need to raise some money and we're hoping you can help!

She's A Keeper

She's A Keeper

This five piece band with roots in KC has now stretched its audience to Lawrence, KS where part of the band attends KU and all the way down I-70 to Columbia, MO where part of the band attends MU.

When they come together on stage, fun and energetic three part harmonies can be heard. The sound is a folk rock, Americana that at times sounds a wee bit Irish, thanks to one of the two frontmen being half Irish. Also in the mix, a powerful cello and a wiley banjo often played from behind the drum kit.

Those harmonies come from Zac and Colin on vocals and guitar with Fritz on percussion, drum kit, banjo and vocals. Elliott on bass brings prowess in his genes as he is the son of one of The Elders. And then perched behind her cello is Kate adding a dynamic not found in young bands these days.

When firing on all cylinders they can turn any room into a party. One of their first gigs at recordBar brought out 160 people. Since then they have played at Livestrong Sporting KC Stadium, Kanrocksas, The Country Club Plaza Art Fair and recently sold out The Brick in Kansas City.

They are currently playing in support of their 2011 self titled, self released album, "She's a Keeper."

In the near future they hope to begin work on a brand new EP as well as make their first music video.


Hearts of Darkness

The Hearts of Darkness sails the treacherous current between dark Afro-beat rhythms and explosive horns to create an insistent groove with ominous intent. -from the bands myspace page
