New and naughty Māori show band provides a contemporary take on the showbands of old with satirical skits and familiar party tunes made famous by Howard Morrison Quartet, The Hi-Marks, Prince Tui Teka and John Rowles. Features Jamie McCaskill, Rob Mokaraka, Jerome Leota, Erroll Anderson and Cohen Holloway.

Get ready for a night of hilarity as The Māori Side Steps flip familiar tunes on their heads in a theatrical presentation of satirical skits, crooning goodness and hilarious banter.

Not only are many of their songs send-ups, but the group are dressed in a colourful array of colonial type costumes with Union Jack flags wrapped around their waists.

They even have their own web series. Check them out on YouTube.
