Governor's gig: Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and his rock 'n' roll band, Capitol Offense
Washington Times ^ | December 02, 2004 | John McCaslin

Posted on 12/01/2004 11:55:07 PM PST by Jim Robinson

Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and his rock 'n' roll band, Capitol Offense, will headline the Jan. 20 inaugural ball hosted by Free Republic, a grass-roots conservative news, analysis and activism forum, in Washington.

It's a repeat performance for the 49-year-old Mr. Huckabee, whose gubernatorial term expires in 2007. Because of the high-spirited show put on by his band at the 2001 Free Republic Inaugural Ball and Count the White House Silverware Party, guests left other inaugural balls in favor of the governor's less-formal gig, which, this year, honors the U.S. armed forces.

Will this event be video taped or better yet, on C-Span?

My son attended college with Mike's son at OBU, in Arkadelphis, AR. My son was very impressed with Mike Huckabee, as he was invited home to visit the Huckabees. His son is very nice, too!

We had been there to live through some of the Clinton years. We escaped after about 5 of those years, luckily for us!

Both, I hope. Just broke out and watched the tape of the first ball, man I'm fired up! It's so great to see all our old friends having such a great time! Can't wait to do it again!

That first ball was such a beautiful evening, and hubby and I are really looking forward to this next one! The Governor's band is outstanding, and it will be good to hear them again.

Hope to see lots of old friends on January 20th!

My elation with the election of W (and Dasshole losing, the UN getting its comeuppance and Rather's humiliating legacy) is almost lost with the fact that I cannot attend. I'll be there in spirit, as with the first one...

I've been a friend of Mike's for years. He's good people.

He's a tremendous gospel preacher as well.

Will Capitol Offense kick off their first set with "Born to be Wild"?

They were a key ingredient to the celebration 4 years ago.

Oh yeah, none of this would be possible without your inspiration. Thanks

NOT Inauguration eve --- that would be the night before Inauguration. It is the night of Inauguration.
