From a middle school band to serious musicians, Making the Night has seen many different line ups, musical styles and members. Started by drummer, Desi Ingram and guitarist Jimmy Maffit under the name Fallen Skyline the young band searched for shows and their own musical identity. They soon recruited bassist Steven Linn. Fallen Skyline enjoyed small scale success playing shows at coffee houses such as Seekers in Mentor for friends and family. After about a year of switching of vocal responsibilities the band searched for a more permanent vocalist and found Victor Senn. From then on they received the same following but began to play shows with more popular local bands such as Thrifters, Call Us Kings, This Love and Exit Cleveland. Because of their performance at these shows the band accepted offers to play with regional acts such as And by Love and Rookie of the Year from North Carolina. Fallen Skyline then broke up and in the next year all four members would work on different side projects including Remember the End, a band lead by Desi, Steven and Victor. While singing in Remember the End, Victor worked with Jimmy on an acoustic project that they simply named Jimmy & Victor. Both bands worked successfully towards the same goal and when Remember the End’s guitarist left, Desi, Jimmy, Steven and Victor came together again to form Making the Night.
Making the Night began writing new material in late 2011. The band looked to create a sound that was all their own but followed current punk trends. After writing a couple of songs and quickly learning some covers they played local shows at The Enclave in Downtown Willoughby. These shows were described by many as lively, energetic, and an overall great time. They soon took a small break from playing shows and focused on writing the best demo they could. After months of long practices and time spent in the recording studio the band was proud to release their first six song CD entitled “Never Ending” in June of 2012. They now look forward to getting back into playing shows for a local audience and expanding their popularity on a regional level.
