The Makings + The Suspicious Jazz Roll Ups

— Mr Wolfs
Gospel rock band, rooted in classic soul-funk
price: Headfirst Tickets


This is The Makings. A big sound system stadium-style gospel rock band, rooted in classic soul-funk but with a raw, contemporary edge, brought to life by an evolving portfolio of daringly original compositions.

Pushing boundaries rather than being confined by them, their deep-groove sound coalesces around jazz-tinged shuffles, bluesy guitar riffs and sassy vocal stylings, all locked together by a fluid yet rock-solid rhythm section. And this synergy of sound fuses with raw lyricism unafraid to confront life’s darkest moments and find the light within them. This is refreshingly candid songwriting with a measured interpretation of adversity, examining its own vulnerability and finding renewed strength therein. The result is both intriguing and uplifting.
The seven-piece have written, recorded and released their eponymous debut EP TMKS, the beginning of a trajectory towards a powerful new sound that favours authenticity over slickness, with an elusive yet compelling appeal. Watch out, there’s more to come.

Delicate yet dangerous in equal measure, The Makingsoffer something different to the Bristol music scene – their own unique perspective on life, with the promise that it’s better if we live it together. Something real is happening. Don’t miss it.

We reserve the right to turn away large groups, in particular Stag Parties, Sports Socials or Pub Golf.
We want everyone who comes to Mr Wolfs to feel safe and comfortable
