Rim D. Paul and The Quin Tikis Profile

aka The Quin Tikis, The Quintiki Showband
Chris Bourke
4 Jun 2013

After the Maori Hi-Five came the deluge. Such was the success of the original Māori showband that their managers Jim Anderson and Charles Mather decided to form a stable of groups.

They called their business the Hi-Five Company, which is why so many of the band names were a play on the original band’s name, such as The Maori Hi-Quins, and The Quin Tikis. All the groups were strictly controlled by Anderson and Mather, their clothes – both on-stage and off – and their behaviour. They were fined for being intoxicated, for not smiling enough on stage, and even for being seen too often with the same woman (this made them seem unavailable, reasoned the management).
