Maori Sidesteps touring North Island

Audiences are in for a night of lively hilarity as The Māori Sidesteps take their crooning showband goodness and satirical skit mayhem on the road this winter, touring to Rotorua, Hamilton, Whanganui, Otaki, and Carterton from June 4 to June 29.

The Māori Sidesteps offer up a fresh take and a political spin on some old familiar party tunes and new and original, foot stomping music. This incredible group entertains crowds with soulful harmonies and laugh out loud stand-up comedy.

“with mischief written all over their faces... they sing with both gusto and finesse” - Theatreview

Starring some of New Zealand’s best entertainers, Jamie McCaskill (Shortland Street, Takes a Village), Cohen Holloway (Fresh Eggs, Hunt for the Wilderpeople), Regan Taylor (Mahana) and Erroll Anderson (Ghost in the Shell) this talented band of entertainers take audiences on a nostalgic and lively ride with their comedic banter and harmonic prowess.

The Māori Sidesteps deliver a fresh and enlightening perspective of the evolution of the Māori showband. See what all the fuss is about online with their successful web-series, and where one of their music videos has amassed over one million views. Audiences up and down the country have been raving!
