Another presidential perk: Your own big band

Friday, November 07, 2008

President-elect Barack Obama will inherit, as he put it, "two wars, a planet in peril and the worst financial crisis in a century." What he failed to mention was the house band he'll inherit. The United States Marine Band, also known as "The President's Own," is the oldest professional musical organization in the country. It's primary function is to serve the musical needs of the president.
