    Makeshift Romeo (sometimes abbreviated MS-R or simply MSR by fans), is a rock band from Fort Myers, Florida. The band was formed by vocalist Derrick "Tripp" Tribbett and bassist Derek DeSantis, after their previous band, Twisted Method, broke up mid-2005.

    Makeshift Romeo came together after the breakup of the Cape Coral, Florida based nu metal band, Twisted Method.

    Twisted Method had been in existence since 1998, where the four band members Derrick Tribbett (vocals), Andrew Howard (guitar), Derek DeSantis (bass) and Ben Goins (drums), met through school and ultimately formed a band together.

    The band was discovered by the management group, 3-Sixty Management, who were impressed by their live show. They subsequently were signed by MCA Records and released their one and only album, Escape from Cape Coma, on July 15, 2003.

    Twisted Method also appeared at the Ozzfest Tour in 2003, where they performed on the second stage. They also had the highest record sales for all the bands performing on the second stage that year.

    A second Twisted Method album was in the works (despite record label problems), when it was announced that the band broke up

    Makeshift Romeo got off to a shaky start, when former Slitheryn drummer Tom "T-Bone" Burke departed, and ex-Motograter bassist Johnny Nailz left due to "musical differences". In the end, Edsel Dope of the industrial metal band, Dope, joined as the full-time drummer, and Virus, also of Dope, took the place of Johnny Nailz as of June 2006, taking over guitar duties.

    The band released their 9 track self titled EP Makeshift Romeo on July 13, 2006. The band self-released the EP, as they currently aren't signed to a record label. It is only available online or at their live shows. Two of the songs featured, "Hurt Me" and "The Way I Was", were intended for the second Twisted Method album.

    Makeshift Romeo completed the Jägermeister sponsored Summer of Sin Tour (2006) with Dope, Manntis, Bleed the Sky and Anew Revolution.
