The band members got together in 1997 in La Broquerie, a small rural town East of Winnipeg. The band got its first taste of success at a French battle of the bands competition named La chicane �lectrique (The Electric Battle). 2 years in a row Ya Ketchose won the Jury prize and the prize for song of the year.

Ten years later, the band is considered a veteran of the franco-manitoban scene due to the quantity and creativity of their shows. In Manitoba they�ve played many festivals, schools and colleges. At the Festival du Voyageur they are prized part of the recurring attractions; having played more than 40 shows in the past 9 years.
Ya Ketchose hasn�t limited itself to Manitoba�s borders as they have performed at festivals in Moncton (NB), Nanaimo (BC), Sudbury (ON) and all over Saskatchewan. They have also done 2 tours of schools and communities in Ontario.

They have released 2 albums: �volution (2000) and En Route (2004). The latter won the prize for Francophone Recording of the Year at the 2005 Western Canadian Music Awards.

Their style is a mix of traditional francophone elements, punk and new alternative. The energy found in their songs creates a unique groove that defines Ya Ketchose�s music.

The members� next goal is to increase their presence in Manitoba, Ontario and Western Canada. They released their new album, Les ombres et les nuages, during the Festival du voyageur 2008.
