Leave Those Kids Alone
Hey Teacher… Leave Those Kids Alone!
Leave Those Kids Alone features talented teenagers performing note-for-note renditions of classic rock favourites. “Hey teacher!” This ain’t no noisy garage band, these kids are alright!
Audiences from across Ontario, the U.S. midwest and a worldwide online audience love hearing LTKA’s renditions of Styx, Frampton, The Beatles and so many more chart-topping hitmakers. If you’ve played it on vinyl or heard it on the radio, Leave Those Kids Alone will make it rock… LIVE!
Formed in 2018, the band has performed over 300 shows and are no strangers to events with 5,000+ people in attendance who can’t believe their eyes or their ears!
Based in Windsor-Essex, Ontario (born and raised in “South Detroit!”), LTKA is a go-to act for family-friendly events, annual festivals, summer concerts, public gatherings, corporate engagements and even weddings! Through their online videos of classic rock hits, Leave Those Kids Alone has reached every corner of the world earning millions of views!
Brother-sister duo of Alex (guitar) and Addi (drums) are paired with Luca (bass) and Louis (keyboards).
In 2015, as students of the Canadian Conservatory of Music in Windsor, Ontario, the kids began rehearsing and performing classic rock hits with school director, Peter Palazzolo and Alex’s father, John-Paul Bonadonna. Three years later, with recital performances and a growing local and online reputation under their wings, the band claimed the moniker “Leave Those Kids Alone” and began performing to audiences across the region.
Now entering their 7th season of shows, the band maintains a tireless performance, rehearsal and online video production schedule to reach audiences in-person and around the world.
As recording artists, Leave Those Kids Alone released their debut all-original album titled “groundwork” in 2022, featuring seven songs written by the band. The band’s 2022 CBC Music Searchlight entry was named the fan vote winner.

“Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to have taught some amazing students! Many are gigging pros today and some have gone on to record deals and tours. These kids have the potential to match or exceed any of them if they continue working hard! These kids are remarkable! Anything I throw at them, they learn! It’s funny… every time the voice in my head says, ‘this one might be too much for them’, they prove me wrong! Pretty amazing that they are the house band at the WFCU at such a young age. Love these kids!!”
