Keep it Cash Potted History
Keep it Cash formed in 2001 and started playing for fun in pubs and clubs, in 2002, they performed more than 70 shows. The band started selling out these smaller gigs and consequently offers to perform at bigger more established venues came in. In 2005, Keep it Cash were contracted to play at the launch of the film ‘Walk the Line’ providing the live sound track on the day. This publicity had a further positive impact on the band and again pushed the show forwards into accessing bigger venues.
