Five friends embark on a journey to live their Maori show band dream.

Following an outstanding Wellington Season, Going West is proud to present, in partnership with Te Pou, the Auckland premier of the highly contemporary and slightly naughty Māori Show Band - The Māori Sidesteps!

Inspired by the humour and music of Prince Tui Teka, Billy T James and also their contemporaries The Modern Māori Quartet. The Māori Side steps will present music that is fun, witty, satirical with a sing a long flavour fused with character comedy and hilarious banter.

Tikapa Productions brought together the talents of Cohen Holloway (Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Boy) Jamie McCaskill (Modern Maori Quartet), Rob Mokaraka (Shot Bro, Tama Tu), Jerome Leota (Naked Samoans) and Erroll Anderson (Ghost in the Shell) to successfully create a contemporary Maori Showband with skits, charm and funny songs to entertain in a fresh style that took Maori entertainers around the world in the 60's and 70's.
Tikapa Productions is driven by the vision to create stories that change the world with a passion to push the boundaries of Contemporary Māori Theatre.

Join us for a night of healthy hilarious humour – it’s got to be good for you!
