     The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them.   Born in 1981 when some staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. They dug into the headlines of the day and created song parodies and skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor. 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, as a whole, the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.  Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 30 albums, including their latest, Fiscal Shades of Gray. They've been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.
