Here are some photos of the 2005 reunion with the 'Final Selection' getting together for the first time in 35 years to entertain them. The band performed on the Sunday night in the Mermaid cellar bar and a great time was had by all. Apart from a couple of hours spread over as many months, the group got together for the first time on the Saturday afternoon and practiced  for 6 hours non-stop. Nicky Watts only arrived on the Island at 2:30pm and by 3pm we were plugged in and bashing out the chords of, 'Hey you get off of my cloud!'
