On Thursday, January 19, Donald Trump will celebrate his official inauguration as President at the All American Ball, “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.”
The event will take place at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill, and for a staggering $350, attendees will be able to witness performances from some of the most noteworthy names in all of music…just kidding.
Owners of the music festival-priced ticket will gain exclusive access to live shows from Nashville-based Beau Davidson, performing tunes from his most recent album The American Gentleman; The Reagan Years, an ’80s tribute band that only plays songs released during the years of Ronald Reagan’s presidency (sounds insane!); with DJ sets from EDM mainstays like DJ Romin, DJ Young Rye, DJ Flow, and DJ Freedom…
According to the Ball’s website, the entire event will feature “approximately” nine acts, leaving attendees on the edge of their seats to find out whether it could end up being eight or 10.
“Enjoy live performances by approximately NINE fantastic acts with FOUR dance floors, plus a who’s-who of special guests, strolling entertainers and other interactive attractions throughout the magnificently appointed venue.”
With such a polarizing political platform and the public condemnation coming from many sectors within the music industry, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Trump was unable to book a lineup with any recognition.
