During the 1985-1986 season several members of the Orchestra —in many fanciful combinations and many different names— performed in Wim Noordhoek's "Pandemonium" (a VPRO radio show).

In 1990 De Parade emerged from The Boulevard Of Broken Dreams' ashes, displaying a comparably anachronistic and theatrical atmosphere with more emphasis on Food & Drinks.
