The KaRs  (The Kane & Regan Show) formed in 2004 after the devasting floods in the Manawatu affected the mood of the region and something needed to be done.

Local schools got in touch and thus The KaRs played their first gig to warm the hearts of children, cheering them up through their unique take on music, comedy & performance.

Soon after this they received a grant from the PNCC to create a CD of educational songs about Manners, Respect, Hygiene and Mathematics.

Their self-titled CD has been a hit ever since and regulary features on kids radio shows across the country. Their quirky songs continue to inspire not just children but adults alike with the importance of washing your hands amd obeying traffic lights.
