KEEPSAKE came humming onto the Florida scene in late 1997, bringing on an inventive emo/rock sound, somewhere around The Get up Kids meets Grade with a hint of Poison The Well. With tight, harmonious, dirge-like qualities that you can still sing along to, Keepsake appeals to a wide rock audience. Keepsake immediately became a local favorite in FL and proceeded on with an east coast tour. After a few changes to the band roster, they stabilized in time to record their debut full- length, ''The Things I Would Say,'' which was released on Eulogy in summer 98'. The band trudged through some membership turmoil eighteen months after the release of the first album and three tours. After the fiasco, Paul and Shane decided to revive the group and venture into the studio to record an MCD entitled, ''She Hums Like A Radio.'' The band then reformed under the present lineup and released the MCD. Keepsake released their latest full length ''The End Of Sound'' to much fanfare and delight. Keepsake broke up in 2003 after years spent on the road. Their final CD was titled "Black Dress in a B Movie" (Fearless). Members were in and went on to Until the End, One Day Away, and Poison The Well.
