| June 1, 2012 | Parties National

THE PARTY Music and politics collided at The Liaison Capitol Hill Hotel, where 250 guests gathered for the annual Recording Academy GRAMMYs on the Hill awards ceremony. The event fĂȘted those helping to leave a mellifluous legacy, including Rep. Howard Berman and singer/songwriter John Mayer, for their dedication to improving working conditions in the music industry, and Hialeah Gardens High School, a GRAMMY Foundation Signature School honored for its progressive music program. THE PEOPLE Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen performed the national anthem for a crowd of fellow musicians, like Monty Powell and Anna Wilson, as well as political power players Sen. Orrin Hatch, Reps. Jerrold Nadler and Howard Coble, and Secretary of Human and Health Services Kathleen Sebelius. BEST IN SHOW Blues legend Buddy Guy took the stage to celebrate seven-time GRAMMY winner John Mayer who, to the delightful surprise of the crowd, joined him for a 30-minute impromptu jazz session.
