The story behind The Mik Maks
Why we do what we do.
“Our mother Pamela instilled the love of music and performance in us from an early age. Family gatherings would involve a lot of guitars, singing and carrying on like pork chops! It was at one such gathering that we decided to write a song for our children. One hour later of creative fun ‘Bruce the Hairy Crocodile’ was born”.
“From that moment we were hooked. We could see instantly the joy it gave to the people around us. We love bringing families together through music. We love hearing stories of entire families dancing in the kitchen or singing along together in the car. That is why we do what we do”.
Eighteen months ago the Mik Mak family suffered the enormous loss of youngest brother and pink Mik Mak Deano. After a period of mourning and absence from the stage The Mik Maks once again performed due to the overwhelming support of their fan base. ‘The incredible support we received was truly overwhelming and gave us the courage to continue doing what we love,’ commented Joel.
‘The Mik Mak music also gives us an opportunity to stay connected with and develop the incredible work Deano had previously done. There’s a little piece of Deano in everything we do. We’re incredibly grateful for this.’ Stated Al.
Currently, The Mik Maks YouTube Channel has had 270,000,000 views and their latest released song debuted at number 2 on the Australian children’s ITunes charts. The band have released 3 albums and 2 Live DVD’s. More songs are in the creative pipeline with a new album due to be released in late 2019.
The Mik Maks own children play a very active role in many of their clips and song writing process. Known as ‘The Mini Maks’ this tribe of talented young performers feel right at home on stage or on the screen.
