Washington — Mick Jagger, BB King and other musical greats are gathering at the White House to celebrate the blues.
Jagger tweeted that President Barack Obama popped in during a rehearsal for Tuesday's concert, seemingly "really relaxed and happy!"
Grammy-winner Keb Mo joked during a break on Tuesday's rehearsal that Obama would be performing three numbers and there was a record in the works.
'Finally get my groove on'
Mo joked that Obama's record would be, "After the second term, now I can finally get my groove on."
Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews says he is ready to back up the president on trombone should Obama decide to grab a microphone.
The blues concert will be part of the In Performance at the White House series that airs in the United States on the Public Broadcasting System.
