Kid Radio

Auckland's funkiest covers band

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 dance floors 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.
