DIARY: PRCA seeks PR musos to form covers band for its Mardi Gras ball

Calling all aspiring Mick Jaggers or Shania Twains ... your services are needed.

The PRCA is holding a Mardi Gras ball on 27 February at London's Great Connaught Rooms. It's organised by Frontline, the PRCA group for the consultancy staff who haven't reached upper management levels - yet.

Although tickets are selling for pounds 47 each, instead of splashing out on some expensive entertainment, the PRCA is looking for something more, well, homegrown.

Flora Hamilton is on the hunt for a band of PR musos who are 'just dying to reach a wide, and very appreciative, audience of 500 odd PR people', which is surely a tautology.

When Diary suggested some names of PR people who were actually professional musicians in previous lives, the reply came that 'we're not fussy' - although they'd prefer Travis covers to Deep Purple.

But Hamilton maintains they are after some of the more 'senior' members of the industry to entertain those who are starting out.

There won't be an appearance fee. But there will be a free ticket to the ball, of course, and the chance to mingle with all the bright young things.

If you are interested, e-mail flora@prca.org.uk, and get rehearsing those famous PR hits such as 'You spin me right round (like a record)', 'Smack my pitch up' and 'It's my party and I'll lie if I want to'.
