Festival folk up and down the country have been raving! The Māori Sidesteps relives the glory days of the Howard Morrison Quartet and Prince Tui Teka but deliver a fresh take on some of those old familiar party tunes. They put their own political spin on well-known songs, and entertain crowds with soulful harmonies and stand-up comedy.
Starring some of New Zealand’s best entertainers, Jamie McCaskill (Shortland Street, Takes a Village), Cohen Holloway (Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Thor Ragnarok, Find Me A Māori Bride), Regan Taylor (Mahana), and Erroll Anderson (Ghost in the Shell).
“An entertaining, belly laughing, poignant, thought-provoking, serenading, sing-a-longy night.”
These “hard-case Māori fullas” will give you and your mates the best night out!
