Actual Music Bands to Play at Donald Trump Inauguration

Lee Greenwood

It has been confirmed there will be live music played by real bands at the inauguration of President-Elect Donald Trump. While just days away, Trump’s handlers fret over a lack of entertainment. Due in large part to Trump’s tempestuous relationship with the industry, the inaugural entertainment committee has had to scrape the bottom of the barrel. Adding to the incoming administration’s woes, Lawrence Welk has finally been confirmed deceased. As well, South Carolina governor and Trump nominee for Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, no longer does the trick with the pineapple and her vagina.

What’s left?

What’s left? Well…Jackie Evancho, Toby Keith, Lee Greenwood and 3 Doors Down. In a statement released by Lee Greenwood, he noted: “I’m honored to be part of history again and sing for President-elect Donald Trump. This is a time to overcome challenges in our country and band together. My wife Kim and I are looking forward to the inauguration ceremonies.” Despite hopes to the contrary, the Greenwood’s presence  has done very little. Some worry about the tone that the show will set for the upcoming administration. Some have picked up on the irony that the president-elect’s choices for cabinet spots (all 70-year-old white men), are the same type of people the choice of acts would appeal to (70-year-old white men).

While the noteworthy the lack of star-power [when compared to Barack Obama’s last inauguration] has some up in arms,  Trump and his people could not care less. Rather, Boris Epshteyn, director of communications for the Inaugural Committee, dismissed the absence of major musicians. Furthermore stating in an interview on CNN, “This is not Woodstock. It’s not summer jam. It’s not a concert.”

Not Boring…Just Entertainment Challenged

In conclusion, there will be no Beyonce, YoYo Ma, Jack White or Paul McCartney. Much as you’d like to, you will not be whisked away by a bright promise of tomorrow. Just hours of Toby Keith and Lee Greenwood.  As Donald Trump gloats, while he searches Twitter.

By the end of the evening, people will be begging for that Nikki Haley pineapple trick.

Good luck not falling asleep.
