Family Entertainers to suit any Community Day
Looking for top kids entertainment for your community day? Whether you’re hosting your event at a school, local park, football ground or otherwise, we’re here to bring some excitement, colour and tunes. There’s not an aspect of children’s entertainment we don’t love, from writing songs, capturing kids imaginations or setting up the stage to get that perfect family friend sound.
At The Mik Maks, we provide quality music and top-notch entertainment that will keep children occupied for hours on end. Our unique sound is made thanks to our talented four-piece band made up of three brothers – Brian, Joel, Alan and Dean McInnes – and their mate Drums the Panda.
We’re a complete set with vocals, guitar, bass, percussion and keys – and together we bring our passion and love for music to your community day. Every family and child that’s seen us has given rave reviews – and we haven’t seen anyone leave with a frown yet!
Don’t worry – we’ll handle all aspects of the kids entertainment
To make your life simpler, we’re able to handle all the lighting and audio equipment, including the PA – this way, you’ll get the best sound and stage set up without having to lift a finger. We’re not just good at music, but we’re also skilled at crafting a killer stage presence, bringing your event to life.
The Mik Maks can also plug into a PA provided by your event. A detailed stage plot can be provided upon request.
What’s more, we’ll take to the stage with gusto, telling jokes and sharing stories that will make any child laugh. We’re not just about the sounds (although this is a big part of what we do) – we also bring a bit of magic to the stage to brighten everyone’s day.
We’ll come to you across Australia
We’ve performed on stages across the state, from the St Kilda festival in Melbourne to Warrnambool, Port Fairy, Geelong and Ballarat. As well as this, we love to travel to wherever you are in Australia, including Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth. If you’re in the capital, we’ll even bring our kit to Canberra too. With some of the biggest event names under our belts, we’ve plenty of experience in capturing the best sounds and delivering them straight to the little (and big) kids in the audience.
Ready to go? Simply call us up and we’ll have a chat about how to bring the best in children’s entertainment to your next event. We’ll help you bring the stage to life, wherever you are in Australia.
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.
