The performance is inspired by the humour and music of Prince Tui Teka, Billy T James and their more modern contemporaries, The Modern Maori Quarter.
The show charts the fortunes of five friends following their dream of a Maori show band.
Rob Mokaraka co-wrote the play and he talks to Jesse about the play and his past struggles with mental health.
