Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

State lawmakers have proven they can do the political dance, but can they sing?

We're not sure if we want to know the answer to that question, but if you do, tonight is your chance to find out.

More than a dozen Democratic state legislators take the stage for a karaoke contest of sorts at Capitol Garage tonight.

For $10 admission, attendees will see if Speaker-Elect John A. Pérez has pipes or if Assemblyman and stand-up comedian Tom Ammiano can carry a tune as well as he can create a laugh.

Other lower-house lawmakers expected to show include Democrats Jim Beall, Marty Block, Bob Blumenfield, Steve Bradford, Joe Coto, Mike Eng, Noreen Evans, Paul Fong, Mary Hayashi, Mary Salas, Sandre Swanson and Fiona Ma, the emcee and host of the event, according to an event organizer.

Proceeds from the 7 p.m. event go to the New Leaders Council, which aims to train and support progressive leaders.
