Howie Morrison Jnr
Howie's unique blend of Irish, Scottish, German, Tongan and Maori heritage certainly shines through with his ability to communicate with people from all walks of life and age groups. A truly professional, charismatic and humorous character who is able to interact and cater to any given occasion
Howie has had years of experience as an MC & guest speaker both nationally & abroad. His sense of humor, quick wit & ability to communicate & entertain is what attracts people from all walks of life to continue booking Howie on a regular basis. The ideal front man guaranteed to make your special event an enjoyable & memorable occasion.
The face of the very popular program “Hunting Aotearoa” for seven series, Howie has developed a huge rapport with hunters throughout NZ, Australia, Samoa, the Cook Islands, Fiji & Hawaii. The re-runs that have played on Heartland NZ television & the indigenous channel in Australia have also attracted a huge following. His friendly, humorous personality & ability to communicate with people of all ages & ethnic groups is what has made Howie a household name today. Howie believes hunting & fishing is not a sport but more an activity, and also a means of utilizing our natural resources to put food on the tables of those not so well off (not everyone can afford Mike King Pork). Without a doubt NZ’s fastest growing outdoor activity to be shared by ALL Kiwi’s; not only affordable but more importantly, educational for our youth.
Howie Jnr has been performing professionally since 1985. With his dad as rhythm guitarist & backing vocalist; as a solo artist since 1990, & more recently with his own Trio alongside Russell Harrison & Chris Powley.

Now Howie has teamed up with former members of the highly acclaimed band Cairo & female artist Rewa Ututaonga, to form the Howie Morrison Showband. Showbands were a huge inspiration in the late fifties thru to the eighties & provided the public with REAL entertainment filled with nostalgia, harmonies, kiwi humour, impersonations & great musicianship not seen today. Groups like the Howard Morrison Quartet, the Maori Volcanic’s, the Quin Tiki’s, the Tremello’s & the Highmarks just to mention a few. The Howie Morrison Showband is guaranteed to provide all of the above & more in a variety of packages that will cater to all occasions.
