The ultimate honor to be bestowed upon any entertainer is an invitation to perform at The White House. Jellyroll, Philadelphia’s premier party dance band, has received that honor, invited by President Bush and the First Lady, Laura Bush, to perform at the 2007 Congressional Ball. The Congressional Ball is attended by Congress, The Senate as well as other dignitaries and their guests.
The 2007 Congressional Ball was held on December 3rd. After a private photo session and presentation with President and Laura Bush in the East Diplomatic Reception Room, the band performed a 2 1/2 hour show only to be asked by President Bush to continue for another 20 minutes. Jellyroll’s dancing audience filled the White House East Room and actually spilled out into the surrounding areas.
Look for some more exciting photos in the near future.
