Kid Radio

Kid Radio are unlike any other Auckland band. Their songlist contains no trace of the tired pub hits of yesteryear. Instead, they’ve assembled a repertoire loaded with nothing but pure dynamite – the jams that other bands can’t touch. If names like Prince, Kanye, Stevie, Justin, Luther and Michael mean something to you, this is your band. The band effortlessly mash up the biggest, baddest hits of pop, hip hop and R’n’B. Featuring dual frontmen Sam Allen and Mal Lakatani on guitars, legendary rhythm section Stephen Thomas and Isaac Etimani on drums and bass and the masterful keyboards and arrangements of Michal Martyniuk, the band have changed the game, setting a new standard for live entertainment in New Zealand. After a few years of setting dance floors alight and filling the place to capacity every Friday night at Sale St with The Beat Council, core members Michal, Steve and Sam left that band to form Kid Radio in 2014. The band are now accepting bookings for corporate events and weddings, and look forward to taking your event to the next level.

The guys in Kid Radio blew away the crowd at our wedding with their fun energy, extreme talent and diverse selection of full songs and medleys/mash-ups that kept all of us dancing until the very end. They exceeded every expectation, and I would hire them again tomorrow.

We had Kid Radio from Findaband perform at our wedding. The band were brilliant! Very friendly, professional, great performers and looked like they were enjoying what they were doing. We would highly recommend these guys, they are fun and play a mixture of new and old tunes without the typical juke box/karaoke songs. If you want to get people on the dance floor, THIS IS YOUR BAND.

KID RADIO fantastic covers, suitable for a wide age range and guaranteed to get everyone up! Kid Radio played at our recent wedding at the Barn at the Hunting Lodge in Waimauku. Guests numbered 70 and were mainly in the 30-60 age group. We had been told Kid Radio are popular with the younger crowds. In their youtube clips, filmed in a nice room but with no audience, they looked like they were having fun and if they could have that much fun in an empty room we felt they would be able to entertain our guests and get them up on the dance floor. They did not disappoint! Can highly recommend them! They even had the bar staff showing their moves!

We were more than satisfied, thanks for checking. They were fantastic, so talented, fun and easy to work with. Would have them back anytime. Lots of positive comments from our guests and the dance floor was never empty so a roaring success.
