“Within minutes of taking the stage, it became quite obvious why Kiwi Time is considered one of the ten best local alternative rock bands in San Francisco by Live105 FM. From the first song on the crowd surged forward to hear the dynamic vocal interplay between guitarist Yoga and keyboardist/Frontwoman Anna Makovchik. They had people swaying up front and set the tone for a great night of music.”… Carl J. Mancuso, Executive Producer, Ladies Rise Up and Rock.

Once I met the four lifelong friends that make-up Kiwi Time and learning about their stance as clean living musicians, I wanted to help see them grow into the rock stars of their dreams. Now, I am very happy to say that our company, Baynetwork, Inc., is the band’s official sponsor and that we have become good friends along the way.”… Yuriy Petushkov, CEO, Baynetwork, Inc.
