Kids Entertainment for Every Holiday Program
We all know the feeling: school holidays roll around, school finishes and the children are brimming with excitement.
Enter The Mik Maks. We’re bright and colourful kids entertainers ready to shake up your holiday program. We’re not used to seeing bored faces – that’s because at every holiday program, school fete or community event we’ve been at, kids (and adults!) have been up and dancing before we know it.
If you’re looking for a dedicated band for your children’s entertainment holiday program, The Mik Maks provides start-to-finish musical kids entertainment that’s sure to be a blast.
With a complete four piece band (including everyone’s favourite, Drums the Panda) we’ll come to you to play rocking kid’s music that gets everyone up and dancing. Each of us (Joel, Al, Dean and Drums) has a bright, confident and genuine personality and amazing dance moves. We play music that you’ll remember for a long time.
Putting The Mik Maks on your holiday program line-up is a ticket to fun.
Family entertainers from Melbourne and Sydney to the rest of Australia
We don’t just play at holiday programs, either. We’ve been before crowds at festivals all across Australia. That includes favourites like the St Kilda Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Run Geelong, Werribee Open Range Zoo and other parties across Victoria and the whole country.
If you’re located regionally or in a big city, we’re happy to travel to you either way. We perform at events big and small – as long as there’s room enough for our unique sound to fill the space, we’re happy. It doesn’t matter if you’re not in Canberra, Brisbane or Adelaide, as more rural areas are our specialty.
If you’re short on time – or if you don’t know your way around sound equipment – we will bring all the electronics we need to stage a rocking performance. That includes the PA system, lighting and more. Leave it up to us – we know what to do!

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.
