Kids Entertainment for Every Festival
When you’re planning a festival – whether it’s for adults or kids – it’s always essential to schedule some entertainment for the little ones, to fill their day with some wonder and excitement. We’re a proven hit with all kids, from toddler age and above – and have even shown ourselves to be quite good at entertaining the grown ups too!
We’re The Mik Maks and we’re here to be your children’s entertainment. With brightly coloured outfits and a unique sound that will get the kids grooving throughout the day, we’re here to seal the deal on your family entertainment.
We’ve performed at some of the top festivals, including St Kilda Festival, Fun 4 Kids Festival and Port Fairy Folk Festival – so we know what kids want.
Festivals are full of sound, colour and fun – and we’re only too happy to follow the theme and add to that happy-go-lucky feeling. We’ll complement all the other activities, stalls and carnival games you have on offer and fill the air with music to get people dancing.
As family entertainers, we’re here for more than just music
As well as playing our hit tunes, we craft a canny stage presence by telling jokes and stories the kids will adore. There’s nothing better than the sound of laughter filling the audience and it’s our aim to make everyone walk out with a smile and fond memory of your event.
Every event, from your festival and more
Our family entertainment is available for all events. Whether you’re fundraising at a school fete, sporting club or charity, putting on some music in the local park, or you need some entertainment for your local market, we’re all too happy to help. Book us for one show or shows across the day and we’ll do the rest.
We travel throughout Australia – from Melbourne to Canberra and beyond
Located regionally? You’re in luck. We’re a travelling band and can bring our entertainment to you, anywhere in Australia. If you’re in Victoria, such as Geelong, Ballarat or Shepparton – or, in fact, anywhere else around the country like Adelaide, Brisbane or Sydney – we’re happy to visit you with our instruments and entertain.
Call us today to get your kids band started
Give us a ring to talk about your needs. We’ll run you through what you need to know and get you on the right track to enjoy the sound that is breaking the mould of children’s music.
Whether you’re a festival novice or you’ve run hundreds of events, we can give you a guiding hand when it comes to booking your musical entertainment and children’s band.
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.
