In 1997, during a party in Martha Vineyard, former President Clinton join "The Boogies" band and wore an Afro Wig.
Is this true or just a hoax?
Where is the picture?

The picture is published in Washington Post.
Is this picture real or just a hoax?

Is this another crazy joke, similar to "pretzel & bruise" and "falling down the stairs"?

And now, a picture of the 43rd president of the United States,
gettin' down with the rock band "The Boogies." It happened at
a press party Sept. 5 at a Martha's Vineyard nightclub owned
in part by singer Carly Simon.

The band features '70s tunes and dresses in outlandish costumes, with Afro wigs and such. Toward the end of the party, Bill Clinton went on stage to say so long to the reporters and photographers, who, by general understanding, are off-duty at these events.
Clinton first joked that the band's costumes could be the new
White House dress code. That's when a band member slipped up
behind him and put an Afro wig and a strange zebra-like hat
atop his head.
Clinton warned no more press parties if the picture appeared
in the paper the next day. Hey, it's been three weeks, so we're
off the hook. The photo was taken by a nonpress person who was a guest there.
The photographer wanted no credit. Guess people will do anything for two Loop T-shirts.
