What do you do when you know a bunch of journalists will be in town for the annual White House correspondents dinner? You throw a party, of course — but with a musical twist.

Chuck Leavell, keyboardist for the Rolling Stones, teamed up with his co-founder of MNN.com, Joel Babbit, to create a party for all those journalists with musical leanings. The result was The White House Correspondents' Jam, which featured plenty of music, a couple of Pulitzer winners and a dose of celebrity for good measure.
