Hey Gents,

On PBS, they just showed a live performance from the White House focused on the Memphis Soul sound of the '60's and it was "The Bomb".

You should have seen President Obama and his wife genuinely in the groove. It was a very good show and featured such old stars as Booker T., Steve Cropper, Charlie Musselwhite and several others. Fun!

This forum has now been put under serveillance since Fred C used "White House", "President Obama" and "Bomb" in the same post. Run to the hills, boys!

Obama seems to have great White House performances. I was a-feared that if Mitt won, we'd be treated to Pat & Debbie Boone or the Lennon Sisters.

Must be cool to be prez. If you want to have a party you get Booker T, Queen Latifah, Steve Cropper, The Alabama Shakes, Mavis Staples, etc.
I throw a party & I get a bunch of nobodies.

ps, I think it would have been Donnie & Marie under the Mittocracy.

Hey Dan,

FUNNY! laugh laugh

Larry,

We'll find them and kill them. Don't you worry about that. They're dog food. And as our pursuit of Osama bin Laden proves, we don't particularly care how long it will take.

I saw some of that show last night. There was this singer in a white shirt and black bow tie (anyone know his name?), and man could he belt it out, a screamer similar to those black gospel singers, example; the early on Mighty Clouds of Joy, kinda like those guys or Screamin Jay Hawkins but way better. I was just passing by PBS mid concert channel surfing, but that guy stopped my channel surfing right then and there. The wife brought home a DVD of the Hobbit and she was antsy to start that, but it had to wait until the finish of that show.
