Its time to get out platform shoes, the bell bottoms, the glitz the glam and lycria Party Time is here again! With The Ultimate Summer Party!!!
The band formed in Bray, Co. Wicklow, Ireland. Fellow Irish musician Bono commented on the impact that Bagatelle had on U2 in the early days of their career. Larry Mullen, of the same band, once famously said that he used to call them "Baga-Money", in reference to their fame, and that he wished that his band could be as successful as Bagatelle.
Bagatelle shared stages with artists such as Bob Marley, Don McLean and Jose Feliciano. Their albums were produced by Phil Coulter and the late Gus Dudgeon, who also produced for David Bowie and Elton John. Bagatelle appeared on the "Self Aid" concert in the mid-1980s with U2 and Van Morrison.
The band returned to touring in 2010 and released an album of cover versions entitled Under The Covers.
