Personally, I don't get the connection but who cares! Gloriana has been invited to take part in "The Motown Sound: In Performance At the White House" a televised PBS special airing next week.  Guitarist and former New Hartford resident Tom Gossin says,

“It’s such an honor to be asked to be a part of this celebration of Motown, especially at the White House in front of The President and First Lady . I think this will go down as one of the coolest things we have done to date.”
