Taking its inspiration from a famed Taranaki show band, an exhibition in New Plymouth is transporting visitors on a journey back in time through the fashion, music and technology of the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

Kount Five Plus Two - the backing band for touring luminaries such Ray Columbus - played dances, cabarets, and hotels across the region over a 17-year career.
