Since their inception in 1964, The Māori Volcanics have been the most successful, and enduring of the Māori showbands. Billy T James started his career with them, and, after starting out with the Maori Troubadours, Prince Tui Teka became well-known through his stint with the Volcanics.
The current line up were all present on opening night at Volume, and Yadana Saw caught up with Jermaine Kawau, Hone Paki, Mahora Peters and Billy Peters for a korero and a waiata.
