The Makemakes is an Austrian rock band that was formed in 2012. The band is made up of Dodo (Dominic) Muhrer (vocals), Max (Markus) Christ (bass) and Flo (Florian) X. Meindl (drums).
The band became well known in Austria in 2013 when they were fortunate enough to perform as a support act for Bon Jovi at the Vienna Krieau. The following year later the band released their single Million euro smile which reached to number 2 in Austria.
The Makemakes won the right to represent Austria on home ground after beating 16 fellow contestants in the national selection Wer singt für Österreich?
