(Fairfax, VA – June 11, 2012) – Gershman, Brickner & Bratton, Inc. (GBB) announced today its sponsorship of a special performance by the Capitol Steps, an American musical political satire group, during WASTECON’s networking event taking place Wednesday, August 15, 2012, from 6 to 9 p.m., in Washington, DC. Organized by the Virginia ‘Old Dominion’ and Mid-Atlantic Chapters of the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA,) the event will celebrate SWANA’s 50th Anniversary with a night filled with food, laughs, music and entertainment. Joining GBB as co-sponsors are RRT Design & Construction (www.rrtenviro.com) and Renewable Energy from Waste, a new publication from the Recycling Today Media Group (www.rewmag.com).
“GBB is proud and happy to present the Capitol Steps as the centerpiece of this year’s WASTECON networking party and celebration of SWANA’s anniversary,” said GBB President Harvey Gershman. “It promises to be a fun-filled evening where industry players get a chance to mingle, wind down, and enjoy the evening in the middle of this important conference.”
The Capitol Steps started out in 1981 as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. The group takes ideas ripped from the headlines and creates parodies & skits that highlight their special brand of satirical humor. Although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of 18 Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience. The group has released over 30 albums and has performed on NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, NPR, and in various venues around the United States.
In addition to the Capitol Steps sponsorship, GBB will be an exhibitor as in past years (Booth # 1141) and will have several representatives making presentations.
