The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them.
In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom ("Don't quit your day job!"), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent over 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.
Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded 35 albums, including their latest, "Orange is the New Barack." They've been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard twice a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.
Although the Capitol Steps are based in Washington, DC, most of their shows are out-of-town or for out- of-town audiences, whether it's the National Welding Supply Association, a University audience, High Schoolers, or State Legislators. In fact, the Capitol Steps have performed for the last 5 Presidents (6, if you include Hillary). The only complaints the Steps seem to get are from politicians and personalities who are not included in the program!
The material is updated constantly - audiences can expect to hear "Oops I Tweeted Again", "Hey Mr. Tangerine Man", "Stuck in the Middle East Too", "Don't Think Twice, its Alt-Right", and "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Korea". No matter who or what is in the headlines, The Capitol Steps are equal opportunity offenders.
