Modern Maori QuartetNZ
22 - 23 Jan
Modern Māori Quartet are an award-winning, good looking, suave contemporary Māori showband in the vein of forebears such as the Hi-Marks, Māori Volcanics Showband, Dalvanius and the Fascinations, Māori Troubadours, Māori Hi Five, Quin Tikis and The Howard Morrison Quartet.
MMQ aspires to be one of Aotearoa’s global cultural ambassadors, representing the revival of a proud heritage of world-class Māori showband entertainment.
MMQ’s accomplished artists hail from different corners of Aotearoa (New Zealand) to bring the concept of a “Māori Ratpack” into the present, weaving acting and musical talent together to croon their spin on modern and classic numbers.
With hearty voices in epic harmony, they share Māori traditions, aroha (love) and tell Kiwi stories through waiata (song) with tongue-in-cheek Māori humour, charm and charisma.
Join us for a party like no other as MMQ perform a mix of off-beat comedy, stage routines, unique takes on Māori showband hits and Kiwi classics, original music, and displays of distinctively Māori song and dance.
At the core of it all, MMQ are a classy celebration of the entertainment legends of Māoridom; hearty Māori entertainment that will warm your heart and make you cry with laughter.

The Wee ReviewIn short, it’s a beautiful hour with truly stunning vocals. We loved every minute of it!
The ClotheslineMy soul is enriched from their presence, their voices, their authenticity and their magic. My heart is singing and I thank you MMQ. Whakawhetai koe
Young PerspectiveWith such powerful performances that reminded me of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr and Michael Bublé, I left wanting more, to hear more songs and learn more about Māori customs... A must see.
StuffThere can be no doubt that this quartet deserves the reputation that they are gaining internationally… they represent the best of the mighty showband tradition.
