The Makings are playing on Friday night! With a raw, contemporary edge, brought to life by an evolving portfolio of unique compositions, The Makings offer big, brash sounds that bring something different to the Bristol music scene and beyond.

Pushing boundaries rather than being confined by them, their deep-groove sound coalesces around jazz-tinged shuffles, bluesy guitar riffs and harmonious vocal stylings, all locked together by a fluid yet rock-solid rhythm section. And this synergy fuses with raw lyricism unafraid to confront life’s darkest moments and find the light within them.

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.

+ DJ Paulo Fernandez
