Daddy - O & the Sax Maniax is a 12 piece high energy band featuring energetic vocalists, a three piece horn / percussion / vocal section, a five piece rhythm section that includes a drummer, bass, keyboards, and guitar. Daddy - O & The Sax Maniax offers a diverse mix of Disco & '70's retro hits, as well as, R&B, Jazz, Swing, Rock 'n Roll and Contemporary music. Known throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania as "President Clinton's favorite band", Daddy - O & The Sax Maniax has performed at both inaugural celebrations held in honor of President Clinton and Vice President Gore.

In 1993 the band played at the inaugural party held at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington D.C. The band was also invited to perform at the White House in May of 1994 for the wedding reception of Tony Rodham (Hillary's brother) and Nicole Boxer (Senator Barbara Boxer's daughter). During the festivities, President Clinton accepted an invitation to perform on stage with the band. This was a thrill for everyone in attendance, including Mrs. Clinton who watched from center stage. If that wasn't enough of a thrill, Daddy - O & The Sax Maniax was invited by the President to entertain at Mrs. Clinton's surprise birthday party held at the White House in October of 1994. Once again the President graced the stage and sat in with the band.

In addition to the White House appearances, Daddy - O & The Sax Maniax has performed for the Governor's Christmas Ball in Harrisburg in 1994 for then Governor Casey. Lt. Governor Mark Singel sang with the band during the festivities. The band were invited back by Governor Tom Ridge in 1995 and 1996.
