Other pictures at 800 ISO are excellent. Once at home the next morning, I tried to reproduce the issue and was not able to. So it must the combination of high ISO setting and of certain kind of lighting (fluo or whatever, it was the scene lighting system.

The banding will only occur with shutter speeds above 1/60 of a second and typically becomes really noticeable above1/100. At ISO 800 your shutter speeds were probably long enough to avoid the problem.

With standard 60 Hz fluorescent bulbs you should see about 8 bands from top to bottom. I am not sure what is causing the banding in the example you posted but I think it is something else.

I agree with that in its entirety. Electronic shutter is a great option for several reasons but it has its limitations. The third limitation is its incompatibility with flash.
