You've seen and heard them on NPR, NBC, PBS, and ABC. Now see them live!
The Capitol Steps begin in 1981, at a Christmas party in the office of former Senator Charles Percy. Like most things in Congress, they never knew when to stop. Over the past twenty-six years, the Capitol Steps have recorded twenty-nine albums, and appeared on “Good Morning America,” the “Today Show,” “20/20,” “Entertainment Tonight,” “Nightline,” CNN’s “Inside Politics,” and dozens of times on National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered.” For the past nineteen years, they’ve produced quarterly specials for public radio and have been featured in three national specials for public television. They’ve performed for five U.S. Presidents (six if you include Hillary.)
Many of the performers have worked on Capitol Hill, some for Republicans, some for Democrats, and some for members who sit firmly on the fence. In fact, the current cast of the Capitol Steps has at one time or another infested the offices of eleven US Senators and seven Members of the House of Representatives. Most of these politicians have since been defeated or placed under investigation.
