What is the official time frame of the NPG?

Paisley Park posted this photo from the Celebration event. The date range they show is 1989-2000. But I know Prince used the NPG moniker well after 2000. How did they arrive at that time frame?

I think this panel was with members from that era. There is a panel Saturday or Sunday titled "NPG 2001-2016" so I assume that one will have more recent members.

that is weird, I would think it would be officially 1990-1995, 1995-2002/2004, 2005-2008 etv

Ah that makes sense. Does anyone know if Sonny T and Michael Bland were/are going to be there? Adrian Crutchfield said the Hornz weren't invited but from photos he's posted on social media he's in Minnesota. Maybe he's just there as a guest?

Sonny and Michael weren't there. Adrian was on the NPG panel on Sunday. He did't play.

Prince considered the NPG to be his main 'revue' band right up to 2016.

Donna said she was member of 3RDEYEGIRL and the NPG when he did the shows with the larger band. She commented that she was a member of Prince's smallest and biggest bands.

Hopefully at the next Celebration event they can get more NPG members there. Os many good people performed with him. I'd love to hear from Rhonda Smith and Candy Dulfer.
