Donald Trump has announced the list of acts who will perform at his inauguration ball on 19 January 19th, the eve of the ceremony proper.
Taking place at the Hyatt Regency, the All American Ball “is a toast to American culture, featuring a stellar list of special guests, plus multiple areas of entertainment and attractions, which represent the diversity, energy and promise of America.” But at $350, just what should you expect for your money?
The line-up boasts Nashville singer-songwriter Beau Davidson, who will perform music from his latest album, The American Gentleman, surely inspired by the main man himself. Then there is the sweetly retrograde The Reagan Years, who only cover music released during Ronald Regan’s presidency, rolling us back to that 80s Americana nostalgia. A wedding band called The Mixx, who proudly "book an average of 25 weddings and 20 corp events & private parties a year", plus an inauguration ball.
Sets by DJ Romin, DJ Young Rye, DJ Flow, and DJ Freedom will hopefully see Trump elect spinning some decks with headphones over that ace helmet hair. The Star Spangled Singers will also take the stage to serenade party-goers with “uplifting, patriotic songs and instrumentals."
With a little under a month until the Trumpocalypse officially strikes, the 70-year-old has revealed that his presidency will start with a musical catastrophe. On the day itself, Trump's team have announced that 16-year-old America's Got Talent star, Jackie Evancho will sing the national anthem. Though in the latest snub to the president elect, Andrea Boccelli has pulled out, leaving a gap that only one man can fill: Kanye West, anyone?
