This afternoon, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are having the best house concert ever.

Memphis musicians Justin Timberlake, Mavis Staples, Steve Cropper, Ben Harper, Charlie Musselwhite and Sam Moore will play a special concert at the White House this afternoon.

Booker T. Jones is slated to be the bandleader, and Cyndi Lauper (who recorder her last album here) is also expected to make an appearance.

This morning, there was a Memphis music workshop, and the main event is scheduled to happen at 5:55 p.m. (Central).

To hold you over, here's some video from the CA of Sam Moore singing "Hold On, I'm Coming":

The Commercial Appeal has been kind enough to lower its paywall so that anyone can stream the concert for free this afternoon. You can watch it live on their site at 5:55 p.m..

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
