The Insanes began at INSEAD with the December 1997 promotion. Having continued their musical stylings through the years, the band rocked the chateau at the 10-year reunion of their class in 2007. Due to popular demand, the INSANES were invited back to play for the INSEAD ball in 2008. The band has expanded to include alumni from three promotions. This talented group of business people unleashed their rock and roll souls for a week of rehearsals in the fabulous Montrouge studio. Here are some recordings from their rehearsals in May 2008 (works in progress at the time but wow! what progress).

The band includes:

Vocals: David Lange (MBA Dec 97),Valia Anyfioti (MBA Dec 98) and Katherine Philips-Kaiser (MBA Jul 97)

Guitar: Carl Bouthillette (MBA Dec 97) and Nick Balfour (Dec 98)

Bass: Antoine Tirard (MBA Dec 97)

Keyboards: David Roche (MBA Dec 98)

Drums: Lou Waters (MBA Dec 98)
