Following The Exponents split, Jordan formed his own band, Luck, playing Exponents songs and new compositions with song writing partner Bryan Bell. He and Bryan continue to play in the Jordan Luck Band today, releasing their album, Not Only…But Also in 2016

Brian returned to New Zealand in the early 2000s and began working with former Bird Nest Roys singer Little Ross Hollands in their new group The Diamond Rings which also included a rhythm section of fellow Exponents David and Harry. The Diamond Rings released their debut album The Rasper in June 2009.

In 2005 the four original Exponents – Jordan, David, Brian and Harry got together to record Geraldine and Or A Girl I Knew with producer Neil Finn for inclusion in a new Exponents hits compilation called Sex & Agriculture – The Very Best Of The Exponents. The album featured one disc of the hits and a second of b-sides and rarities. The group played a small tour in support of the album which went platinum and reached number 7 on the charts.

At the 2007 APRA Silver Scroll Awards on September 18th, Jordan was named by his old friend Mike Chunn as the first inductee to the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame in recognition of his outstanding body of work as one of New Zealand’s leading song writers.

Jordan, Brian, David and Harry reunited again in 2010 to play at the “Band Together” benefit concert for the 2010 Canterbury earthquake. Their 1985 hit Christchurch (In Cashel St. I Wait) became the theme song for the concert and the band closed the show which was screened live on national television with a mass chorus of the song featuring all the artists who performed at the concert.
