The Vipers were an instrumental covers band. They played the church youth club scene and did social gigs around the Mt Albert and Mt Roskill areas of Auckland during 1963 and 1964.

Also doing solo spots around Auckland at this time was singer Wayne Maxwell. He teamed up with the Vipers and they renamed themselves Wayne & The Whirlwinds.
