Year:

2006

2006 saw the House Band short of a bass player once again and I was invited to join them for Publicis’ biggest ever Christmas party at the Trocadero. 
Mike organised a dress rehearsal, “Wadestock”, in November to celebrate his marriage to Penny, and we held a reprise on St Valentine’s Day 2007, both gigs at The Troubadour, Earls Court. The February date was the last we played as “The Publicis House Band” as most of the band members had left the company.

The venue: the Trocadero, Picadilly Circus. The audience, an estimated 1500 Publicis staff and clients. The Dirty Pretty Things topped the bill - but everyone said we were better!

Mike and Penny

Wadestock: Mike married Penny in 2006 and celebrated with a musical soiree at the Troubadour in Earls Court. 

The band got back together for St Valentine’s Day 2007, once again at the Troubadour. It was more relaxed and gave us the chance to invite non-Publicis people along.
