Philadelphia’s popular dance band, “Jellyroll”, brought their party sounds to the White House this past Saturday, March 29th, for our First Lady, Laura Bush’s 44th High School Reunion . This was Jellyroll’s second White House performance. The 13 member group was also the featured entertainment at the 2007 Congressional Ball on December 3, 2007.

As Jellyroll bandleader, Kurt Titchenell, explains, “Performing at The White House was a great honor, as it would be for any entertainer, but being asked to return to perform at such a significant event for our President and First Lady was the ultimate honor. It was great to meet President and Mrs. Bush again, and to see our First Lady dancing with her friends and classmates.”

Jellyroll kept the historic East Room full of dancers during their two and a half hour show, performing songs from all eras, and highlighted by their Philadelphia based medley of hits beginning with the “Bandstand” theme song.

The evening ended with the Midland High School graduating class of 1964 waving their arms in unison to the band’s high energy rendition of Lionel Ritchie’s “All Night Long”.
