Kid Radio




Classic Hits
Top 40





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 dancefloors 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.

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.

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.

— Robert Pearce, Wedding

Recently had Kid Radio perform at my birthday and they were absolutely Fab. Had the dancefloor always full and so many positive comments from my guests about how good the band was in the days following. They were super friendly and sounded amazing. Great range of songs. Clean, sharp sound. Thank you so much for a great vibe.
