NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT THE WHITE TIE AND TAILS DINNER OF THE NIGHT BEFORE, BUT IT IS THE SAME GREAT SHOW!
BACKROUND: The Gridiron Club has been holding its annual Saturday night, formal Gridiron dinner since 1885, featuring satire and songs that skewer Presidents and Congressional leaders, lobbyists and sacred cows. At this event, (which is the more informal next-day afternoon Sunday Reprise), syndicated columnist Mark Shields relays the highlights of speeches that were delivered the night before, which typically include remarks by the President and a leading Democrat and leading Republican. Running the musical performance is the director of the Presidentís Own, the Marine Band, Lt. Col Jason Fettig, who serves as the Club's musical director.
