As Bruce Springsteen continues to criticize President-elect Donald Trump, the self-proclaimed "No. 1 Bruce Springsteen tribute band" is performing at an inaugural gala next week.
The B-Street Band, a Belmar-based act that covers Bruce Springsteen songs, is booked for the Garden State Inaugural Gala on Jan. 19, one of the many formal Washington balls scheduled around Trump's inauguration.
Gov. Chris Christie and First Lady Mary Pat Christie are serving as honorary chairs of the ball to "recapture the fun and romance of the Jersey Shore in elegant style." It is organized by the New Jersey State Society, a nonpartisan nonprofit that schedules activities and networking events for New Jerseyans living in the Washington area.
Kind of reminds of how Americans could not choose a real president so we got Doanld Trump instead.
Every day I think this whole Trump inaugural thing cannot get any more pathetic, and every day I am proven wrong.
By the way this band says that if the Boss tells them he does not want to them to perform his songs at the inauguration, they won't.
Update: Last minute news confirms that the inaugural team managed to snag a few desperate folks to entertain the....let's go with "throngs" that show up.
Country stars Lee Greenwood and Toby Keith are scheduled to perform. As well as the band 3 Doors Down, somebody named Jennifer Holliday, and Cowboy Troy.
However Paul Anka, who is in his seventies, has pulled out using a battle over child custody as his excuse.
Sounds like quite the show, sorry I will miss it but I have plans to do just about anything else instead.
