Makeshift3 started in 1995 & our original name was just Makeshift. We began with 3 students from Fallbrook High School in San Diego County. We were Ryan Coughlin, Jeff Lascola, & Eric Mattson. In September of 1996, Ryan went away to college so Jeff & Eric replaced him with Tyler Bochenek (Eric's cousin). Makeshift then rebuilt their sound, message, focus, & added the "3" to Makeshift forming Makeshift3 because of legal issues similar to Blink adding the "182."
