The President Stops for Some (Ba)Rock 'n Roll

Summary: 
While visiting Oakdale, Pennsylvania, President Obama was treated to a rock-and-roll surprise by local band Comfort Tech.

Earlier this week, while traveling to Oakdale, Pennsylvania to talk about the importance of reforming America's job-training programs, the President was treated to a rock-and-roll surprise.

Local band Comfort Tech transformed their driveway into a stage, and as the President's motorcade drove by, he spotted the musicians and wanted to meet them.

"Secret Service wouldn't let me go down and hear you play, but I figured at least I could say thanks for offering to play," the President told the musicians.

The President and Vice President chatted with the band and took a few pictures, and we got it all on tape.
