Formerly The Funk Band Keepers of the Groove, The Keepers have evolved into an up-and-coming collective that soulfully mixes unpretentious music with blues and classic rock. The band’s songs add frontman Shamus Currie’s vocal gallantry and songwriting dexterity to jazz-guitar rifts and deft drum rhythms to generate an original sound. The group’s self-titled EP is currently in the works, and promises a genuinely fresh trove of classic rock-inspired tracks. - Verb

The Keepers of the Groove, as their name suggests, strive to uphold the fine and funky traditions laid down by the masters of soul, rock and jazz of the 60's and 70's. The Keepers of the Groove deliver strong melodies, sweet harmonies, and satisfying grooves in their original tunes as well as their choice covers. With strong technical backgrounds and influences that range from Curtis Mayfield and Charles Mingus to Led Zeppelin, the Keepers have a varied and dynamic sound. Listeners can rest assured that the Keepers have skimmed away all the junk that exists in modern music today, but have kept all the groove.

Shamus Currie serves as the KOTG's guitar-wielding frontman whenever he can tear himself away from the trombone. Shamus' deep rooted musicality can be traced back to his family connections; he shares genes with The Sheepdog's frontman and brother Ewan, as well as Juno Nominee and father Neil. Shamus' song writing aptitude and vocal prowess can be witnessed in KOTG's original tunes. Shamus is currently studying jazz trombone at Humber College in Toronto.

Kyle Krysa is an alumni of Tombstone Diaries and is Megan Lane's go-to drummer. Kyle recently finished a music diploma from Grant MacEwan College and is one of the most in-demand freelance drummers in Saskatoon.
