The Dance Exponents circa 1982
Martin Morris (Guitar) who briefly replaced Steve "Fingers" Cowan, Jordan Luck (Vocals), Dave Gent (Bass), Brian Jones (Guitar) and Michael "Harry" Harallambi (Drums)
Other members, over time, included ..... Eddie Olsen (Drums), Chris Sheehan (Guitar), and ultimately Dave "Duck" Barraclough (Guitar)

The Dance Exponents who would later shorten their name to The Exponents (after a brief time as Amplifier) circa 1990, formed in Christchurch in 1981, and went on to become one of New Zealand's longest lasting bands.  The group's first gig was at The Hillsborough Tavern in Christchurch on October 15th, 1981 (it was Jordan's 20th and Steve's 22nd birthday).  Jordan was born in Canada, and his wild rock 'n' roll lifestyle is legendary, as are the band's ubiquitous anthems which include Victoria, Why Does Love Do This To Me?, Who Loves Who the Most?, and I'll Say Goodbye (even tho' I'm blue) - songs embraced by successive generations of Kiwis.
