Wide Awake with Sleepy Kid, Tonight

Johnny Barker AKA Sleepy Kid is all set for Kiwi FM After 5 Live tonight at the Living Room, 106 Ponsonby Road, so now you have no excuse for going home straight after work.

Johnny Barker is fresh from recording his new album Lullabies for Macy Rose and his new single Summer Skies is all over the 100% New Zealand Network’s play list. Johnny has recently toured with last week’s After 5 Live act Reb Fountain.

After 5 Live is a free event that offers you the chance to see some of New Zealand’s best musicians while you’re having your after work wind down and so far the series has drawn plenty of interest.

After 5 Live is perfect for getting colleagues or friends together for an early night out, and after the live set, Kiwi FM’s hosts will be putting together the best New Zealand music to enjoy throughout the rest of your evening.

The Living Room has quickly become one of the area’s most popular venues with a superb range of beers, wines and fine food.

What: Kiwi FM After Five Live
Who: Johnny Barker AKA Sleepy Kid
