The Maori Volcanics
Formed in Sydney in 1964, the Maori Volcanics became the most successful and enduring of the Maori showbands. Their routine included songs and dances from the South Pacific and comedy, ballads, trick instrumentals, group impressions, and saxophone solos.
The original Maori Volcanics line-up survived relatively unchanged until 1972. Prince Tui Teka, Dalvanius Prime and Billy T James all started their careers with the Volcanics.
They performed in over thirty-five countries including Australia, Japan, Vietnam, Turkey, Israel, The UK, USA, Canada and Ireland...
