Join us to enjoy Chris Sanders new album - 'These Memories Make You and Me'
We're all about creating great family memories at Whoa! Studios so we are very pleased to have back, once again, Chris each Monday over the school holidays.
Chris Sanders is one of New Zealand’s top Children’s singer-songwriters and authors. His latest release ‘Call For The Ambulance’ featuring the ‘111 Ambulance Song’was written for the ASB St John in Schools Education Programme. It was released in May 2018 and has already sold over 4000 copies in its first month. This fun and very catchy book and song will help save lives by empowering kiwi kids with the knowledge of how to react in an emergency and dial 111.
The ‘111 Ambulance Song’ also reached #1 across the iTunes and Google Play Children’s Music Chart, also reaching #2 in the iTunes Chart across all genres above the likes of Ed Sheeran and Justin Timberlake! It was also the highest charting Kiwi kids song ever, reaching #2 in the NZ Music Heatseeker Chart.
Chris will play his hits and music for the whole family - Live!

TuesdaYS - Let's Get Inventin' 2-Hour Workshop
All kids will produce an original invention concept and build a model ‘prototype’ to take home with the guidance of Luke. Some will experience presenting their invention idea to an audience! Great practice for Dragon's Den! (kidding)
Luke and assistants will coach the kids through this fun and imaginative process. Space is limited to ensure Luke has an opportunity to support the participants along this journey. Bookings are recommended.
That’s alot of bright sparks!!
"All kids are bursting with bright ideas. To prove it, 12 on the show have their own Patents" states Luke. "We have toured over 100 schools throughout New Zealand. Meeting our fans, seeing them embrace the culture of creative thinking and innovation. Embrace S.T.E.A.M. through their own ideas."
