Last Friday, (September 26th,) we played a show at the Boone County Library. Now, I know what you're thinking... "Did you guys switch to acoustic folk rock!?" Don't worry. We still play 1950's rock and roll and rockabilly. In fact, we were surprised to see a beautiful stage and pleased with the fantastic welcome we got in regards to our first year playing at the Boone County Library. Here's some video evidence of the event.
We are Keith Jones and the Makeshifts! A 1950's swingy rock and roll and rockabilly group with an emphasis on Bill Haley's style from Cincinnati, OH. We pride ourselves in quality live performances and our dedication to authenticity and trueness to the original sound.
Some quick review quotes -
"Our focus was on the 1950's era and these young guys truly added to a memorable evening for our guests. In addition to the great music, they dressed the part for a band of that time period. We felt like we had gone back in time. Every band member was courteous and personable."
"They are a truly talented group of musicians who know how to entertain!"
"I could feel the energy coming off of the stage."
