LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The Jonas Brothers have played of a lot of amazing venues – but none were quite as special as when they surprised President Obama’s daughters inside the White House.
The brothers – Joe, Nick and Kevin – spoke to AccessHollywood.com’s “Dish Of Salt” Laura Saltman about their surprise performance for First Daughters Sasha and Malia Obama following their father’s inauguration in January.
“We had an amazing time being there for the inauguration and seeing such an amazing historical event,” Kevin said. “But then to be at the White House, to be the prize at the end for the girls, and to play a couple of songs and give them a couple guitars — it was really, really awesome.”
When asked how they managed to sneak into the White House to surprise the girls, Joe said they walked through the back.
“There were a lot of secret tunnels.” Nick added.
“There were plenty (of tunnels), I think you can walk about a mile under ground. It was a cool experience and we’d go back and do it again,” Joe continued.
The Jonas Brothers, whose “Jonas Brothers: The 3d Concert Experience” hits theaters February 27, said they performed an acoustic set, which included the songs “Love Bug” and “SOS” among others.
And their special audience was very pleased.
“They were just so grateful, so nice, so composed and so awesome,” Kevin said of President Obama’s daughters.
