Satirical troupe the Capitol Steps perform at Horseshoe Riverdome on Sat, Feb 28, 8 pm
Tickets: 1-800-552-8502, or redriverradio.org
$25 and $35, or, for $100, premium seating and a meet-and-greet with the Capitol Steps.
The comedy group, made up mostly of former Senate staffers, hail from the steps of our nation’s capitol. Whether it’s singing of Obama infatuation set to “Leader of the Pack” or of President Bush’s reconciliation with the Prime Minister of Japan to the tune of “Stand by Your Man,” the Capitol Steps portray political players and events through skits and song parodies. The Capitol Steps have been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard four times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their “Politics Takes a Holiday” radio specials.
