When asked to describe Makeshift Jukebox’s music, lead singer and guitarist Aaron Brutcher, quipped without hesitation, “It’s really loud.” He’s right… It is. But it’s much more than that. It’s pure rock and roll.
MSJB has only been around for a few months, but this group of twenty-somethings has a chemistry that any road-worn band would kill for. “We’re fans of old folk, blues, and anything Dave Ghrol has ever touched musically,” says Brutcher. It shows. Obvious hints of Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Jet, and even The Meat Puppets are all over the raunchy guitar riffs and clever transitions that leave you with a sore neck, ringing ears, and a big smile.
The guys released their first single “Black Widow” with Big Snow Entertainment this past Spring, and are due to release their much anticipated EP on November 3, 2012.
Some may think that MSJB’s lofty goal of “taking over the world with rock” is just silly, but after listening, after realizing that this is only the very beginning of something big, you have to at least consider that they just might be serious.
