2018 Southern Victoria Book Week

Musica y Risa

Aussie Kids Rock has entertained kids throughout Australia with their blend of interactive music and comedy since 2003. In Musica y Risa, the loveable guitarist and bass player C.J joins the hilarious drummer Deano on a memorable trip through the music of Europe. Focusing on Germany, France, Spain, Scotland and England, Musica y Risa not only explores music and basic language like greetings and phrases but also introduces students to lesser known instruments such as Castanets, Flamenco Guitar, Squeeze box and many more!


The performers’ energy and organisation was exceptional. There was a very clear curriculum outcome with recognising the styles of music. Very engaging! Both characters were fantastic. Great energy! Wicked Costumes!

One Stop Rock Shop

In One Stop Rock Shop, Aussie Kids Rock do so much more than just play their music. They individually demonstrate how they are playing their instrument, so it can produce the right sound needed to create each of the very different music styles. When the band members are playing, dressed and speaking in the style, they show how for the real devotees of each musical genre, the music is more than just music, it’s a whole way of life.


Excellent! They engaged the students straight away. Full of energy and funny, had the children laughing at all times. The children really enjoyed being involved and being able to get up and dance.

Rock It!

On guitar CJ is upbeat and funky but when he plays bass he is Mr Cool. On drums is the sensational, ever comical Deano and together these two take their audience on a journey through a myriad of musical styles. This compelling performance is a fun filled and fully interactive curriculum based show, designed to inspire children in their love of music.


Great performance. Student involvement and directions were excellent. Good audience participation. We liked the way the performers taught the children about the variety of music styles in a fun and interesting way. The performers were very friendly and had a good rapport with the children.

Shekere Beats

Shekere “pronounced She-Ka-Re” is the name of the African percussion instrument made from the dried fruit of the gourd vine and loosely covered with a wide decorative band of beads. The sound is produced by holding the outer cover of beads in one hand and twisting the gourd across them or simply shaking the entire instrument.


Performer was able to keep students entertained throughout the entire session. Loads of interaction which the children enjoyed. Good introduction and finished on time. I would highly recommend Jonas. Students feedback “The best drumming performance we’ve seen!”
