Several dozen musicians passed through the ranks of the Quin Tikis during their
10 year period during the 60s and early 70s.At their peak the group boasted a star studded line up which included
arguably one of New Zealand's finest singers of all time, Rim D. Paul, our very
own 'Voice In A Million' Eddie Low, and not to be upstaged the vivacious Keri
Summers whose voice and magnetism would always captivate an audience. They were
not the only Stars in a group of Stars, Sam Mateparae was the consummate
entertainer, Gary Wallace aka Wahrilich was the Harlem Globetrotter of the drums
and a natural comedian, ably supported by Freddie Summers and Weazel
There were only two Kiwi movies made during the 60s, 'Runaway' and 'Don't Let
It Get You' with the Quin's starring in both with drummer Gary even landing a
separate co-starring role alongside Sir Howard Morrison. The group travelled the
world and did four tours of duty entertaining American and ANZAC forces in
Vietnam where their main transportation between gigs was by plane or tank. The
group came under fire on several occasions but never wavered in their duty to
