Jon McClure and Ed Cosens of Reverend & The Makers performed an acoustic set to a large crowd in the city’s Winter Gardens as part of the celebrations for BBC Music Day. Having performed at the Frog & Parrot pub earlier in the day, the duo headed to the gardens to ‘busk’ an hour long set that included covers and original tracks ‘Black Widow’ and ‘Open Your Window’ – twenty-four hours before the group headline Sheffield’s Mosborough Music Festival.
Reverend and The Makers thrilled a sellout crowd at Sheffield’s O2 Academy on 24th October 2014. Celebrating their 10th anniversary as a band, they performed the albums ‘The State of Things’ and ‘A French Kiss In The Chaos’ in full on the first of two shows in their hometown this weekend.
On Monday 24th February 2014, I went to HMV in Sheffield to meet Reverend and The Makers, who were signing copies of their brand new album ‘ThirtyTwo’ as well as playing a short acoustic gig for the hometown crowd.
