Congressmen To Play Musical Instruments at The Hill After Party

Is anyone who’s anyone in D.C. not in a band? We told you about Journopalooza. We told you about the Bach to Rock battle of the bands. And now: “The Second Amendments.”

Comprised of five members of Congress, the bipartisan band was formed in 2005. Since then, they’ve played some pretty high-profile gigs for troops stationed overseas and at a picnic hosted by President George W. Bush on the White House lawn in June 2006.

Two of the band’s members, lead guitarist Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-Mich.), called “that rock and roll dude” by Bush, and lead vocalist Rep. Colin Peterson (D-Minn.) will play at The Hill‘s after party for the Washington Press Club Foundation Annual Congressional Dinner. The black tie affair is Wednesday, February 9, at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. The music starts at 10:15 p.m.
