The Buckinghams are uniquely positioned as a rock band, beloved by Baby Boomers and the new Millennials alike. Politics aside, everyone who is running for office wants their guests to have a great time when they put on a fund-raiser. To read more about how The Buckinghams are invited to entertain at some of the most exciting political and civic fundraisers,
In 2005 The Buckinghams were invited to headline the Illinois Bipartisan Agricultural Ball for the inauguration of President George W. Bush. Two guests that night were the junior Senator from Illinois, Barack Obama, and his wife Michelle, who enjoyed dancing to the music.
In 2009, The Buckinghams were invited to return as headliners for the Illinois Bipartisan Agricultural Ball for the inauguration of President Barack H. Obama. The opportunity to play these political galas stemmed from a dynamic political leader who is not an elected official but is instead a beloved son of Chicago himself, Terrance A. (Terry) Duffy, who is the Executive Chairman and President of the CME Group.
Mr. Duffy throws frequent fund-raising events and entertains dignitaries and political leaders from all over the country. One of Mr. Duffy's favored candidates is U.S. Speaker John Boehner (R), 8th Congressional District of Ohio.
