PI Update: Mannequins Autograph Wall

Promo Only and Pioneer DJ Equipment had an open house and dinner for Orlando club DJ's this past Monday night.  DJ Icey (USA) shared with Save Pleasure Island Blog this photo of former Mannequins DJ Pete Werner showing off a piece of the DJ autograph wall that used to be inside the caged booth at Mannequins.  Werner, who went on to help form Promo Only, keeps the autograph wall at Promo Only offices in Sanford.  
As you probably know, Promo Only is the world's leading packager of music and music videos for DJ's, clubs & restaurants. If you're out somewhere and see a music video playing, there's a great chance you'll see the Promo Only label at the beginning and end of the song.   
I never knew about the autograph wall so this is a special treat. Big thanks to Icey for sharing!

That explains why I never knew about it. I first began going to Mannequins during the Jim Fox Peapod era!

It actually got taken out in the rehab of the club in 2001, Pete's last year working there was in 1997. I'm so glad he got that wall, lots of big names past through that booth and signed it.
