President Obama with BB King & All-Star Blues Band

It's been a pretty cool month of February for Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks as they took home the GRAMMY for Best Blues Album then supplied the Bluesy back-up for BB Kin, Mick Jagger and President Barack Obama when The White House staged a special night of celebration for Blues to be aired by PBS.  The vent was streamed live on White House (dot) gov and the highlight of the evening, President Obama opening the vocals for "Sweet Home Chicago" in the finale, with Trucks, Tedeschi, and Warren Haynes among the all-star band members backing King and Jagger, among many others.

Here's a clip:

Hosted by actress Taraji P. Henson, the program included performances by Mick Jagger, B.B. King, Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews, Jeff Beck, Gary Clark Jr., Shemekia Copeland, Buddy Guy, Warren Haynes, Keb Mo, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks. Booker T. Jones served as music director and band leader.
