Reception & Gala Banquet
Friday, June 22, 2012
6:15 p.m. - 11:30 p.m.
Celebrate the Association’s accomplishments
and rich history at the Reception and Gala
Banquet, featuring the musical and political
satire of the Capitol Steps. What began as a
group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize
the very people and places that employed them
for a Christmas party in 1981 is now 30 years
in the making with more than 30 recorded
albums. The Steps have been featured on NBC,
CBS, ABC and PBS and can be heard four times
a year on National Public Radio stations during
their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.
Although not all of the current members are
former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together
the performers have worked in a total of 18
Congressional offices and represent 62 years of
collective House and Senate staff experience.
When the show ends, the dancing begins.
