The Makeshifts

The Makeshifts


We are a rockabilly/blues/country band out of Michigan and Indiana. We currently consist of four young and seasoned members. Our show is very professional. From our clothing, to our sound, to the way we conduct business. We play consistently, and treat each show as importantly as the last.


Rockabilly's Hottest New Act!

Currently consisting of three young, but incredibly talented musicians The Makeshifts are keeping the tradition of Rockabilly and 50s Rock and Roll alive.

Within the first two months, The Makeshifts already had over a dozen shows lined up across the Midwest, and many of their recording are being played on popular internet radio stations.

The Makeshifts have been praised for their attention to detail. Whether it's the way they dress, or the tone of their guitars, The Makeshifts are known for their style and class.

From red hot rock and roll to popular classic country hits The Makeshifts are at home in jamboree's, opry shows, fairs, festivals, and large or small clubs.
