The Event was a mod-minded Britpop-style band formed in the late eighties by singer Ken Naylor and singer/guitarist Tim Soete, who were joined by bassist Mike Therieau and drummer Ben Wayne. They signed to Vox Records and went into the studio with Mark Neil of the Unknowns.
After recording a few demos and appearing on the local TV show It’s Happening, they released one album, This Is the Event (1990).
In 2017, the reunited mod/pop rockers were announced as headliners at the Purple Weekend festival happening December 6-9 in Leon, Spain.
