Our Story

Keith Jones and the Makeshifts are a 1950's rock and roll band from Cincinnati, OH. We specialize in a style that is similar to Bill Haley and tend to lean more toward the swing side of the music. We pride ourselves in authenticity in look and musicianship, from our suits and amps to our upright bass and hair style.  Our current incarnation was formed in 2010, and we have toured most of the Midwest and East side of the United States.

We're currently working on a CD and traveling and playing often.
