"Iowa's premiere geek-pop-rock band"
- from their Pure Volume page
"Keepers of the Carpet began in a small town in North Iowa (Buffalo Center, to be precise) and moved to Ames in the early 2000’s. They were instrumental in the famous BiFi Records explosion which introduced the world to Poison Control Center, among others."
- from a review by Dave Murphy on the Des Moines Is Not Boring website
"Iowa Rock Music. Hailing originally from Buffalo Center, Iowa, Keepers were well known for their exciting live shows & poppy rock music...
"Started in 1997 practicing in barns. We came to Ames and met Bi-Fi Records. We recorded an album. We got on the radio. We played shows. We went on tour. We broke up. We got back together. We changed members a lot. We put out another album. We got on the radio again. We have awesome fans."
