The Model has commissioned artist Michael McLoughlin to create a project exploring Ireland's first youth subculture, the show bands. Fans and performers from the era are invited to come together for this very special Tea Dance where reminiscences and recollections will be shared alongside the unique music of the time.

Michael McLoughlin To Our Friends and Patrons runs throughout Autumn at the model and elements of this dance will be recorded and presented as part of the exhibition.
