Chuck Leavell, Mike Mills, John Bell to Bust a Move at Journos Party

The annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner will have a decidedly Georgia flavor this year – at least at the pre-party.

Macon’s Chuck Leavell – a keyboardist whose resume includes stints with The Allman Brothers Band, Sea Level and, since 1982, The Rolling Stones – will lead an all-star band for the “White House Correspondents’ Jam” that will include R.E.M. bass guitarist Mike Mills, Widespread Panic singer John Bell, and Marshall Tucker Band drummer Paul Riddle.

Jokingly dubbed Phil and the Busters, the supergroup will perform for one night only, April 29th at The Hamilton in Washington, DC, alongside various bands featuring journalists as members; Mills is also expected to sit in with The Sequoias, a group featuring The New Yorker’s David Remnick.
