The Hi-Marks comprised three brothers- Hayward, George, Ellington 'Butch' Ruka, and their nephew John Ruka.
The group was originally formed in Auckland and this group eventually became a top concert group. The Hi-Marks concentrated mainly on reviving songs by 'The Platters', 'The Mill Brothers' as well as their own traditional Maori music
The Hi-Marks entered talent quests - always finishing with a placing and around Christmas they would appear in several cabarets around Auckland. Appearances on Television followed with spots on 'Club Show' and 'Telethon'
