Capitol Steps Performance LIVE at the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts
PATCHOGUE, 28 December 2007 â€“ As the New Year approaches, the 2008 presidential election is building momentum. The Capitol Steps are set to perform their latest material on current â€œhot-buttonâ€ political issues at the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts on February 15, 2008 at 7:00 pm.
Twenty-five years ago, the Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. To their credit, they have recorded 27 albums, including their latest, Springtime for Liberals and have been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS. The Capitol Steps can be heard four times a year on National Public Radio during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.
The Capitol Steps have performed for the last five presidents — six if you include Hillary Clinton. Former President George H. W. Bush said, â€œthe Capitol Steps make it easier to leave public life.â€ No matter who is in the headlines, the Capitol Steps are equal opportunity offenders. â€œTheyâ€™re the best,â€ claimed CNN talk show host, Larry King. â€œThereâ€™s no one like them, no one in their league.â€
