I am searching for a Mr. Richard Russell d.o.b.@1939 of Maori origin. He used to play in a band called the Maori Castaways and has connections in the U.K and in Wellington, N.Z

Kia ora Justine,
Just saw your search note and am taking the opportunity to let you know that Richard Russell passed away some years ago. I don't know the details other than I have a book on Maori entertainers written by Susanne Ormsby which lists Richard among those of the Maori Showbands who have passed on. I was in a band named the Maori Hi-Five and Richard often came to sing with us at the Trades Hall in Wellington. At present, I can't put you in contact with any of the other Maori showband members to find more details. Are you a Spencer from Bluff?
