Grammy Nominee, Travis Greene has been named to be one of the artistes to perform at Trump’s inauguration ball.
In a bid to cut cost for the American president-elect’s inauguration, Donald Trump has directed his committee to boycott top musicians and go for diverse musicians.
Trump ended all chances to invite a huge rock band at one of his Inaugural balls just to cut costs and potentially save tens of millions for charity.
Inauguration sources told TMZ that the Committee was close to landing a legendary group — one that’s in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame — but when the President-elect found out they wanted more than $1 million for the gig he pulled the plug.
Trump implored the rockers to reduce their appearance fee — but when they refused he told the Inaugural Committee to move on to other artists.
Meanwhile, there’s plenty of money to afford it.
The Committee’s reportedly received more than $90 million in donations, but we’re told Trump instructed all involved to keep expenses in the low millions because whatever is left over is going to charity.
The Liberty Ball and Freedom Ball will now feature soul legend Sam Moore, as well as Grammy nominee, Travis Greene.
While organizers are tight-lipped about naming all the acts, sources say you can expect an eclectic lineup — ranging from dance to country to gospel — and everyone’s doing it for free or a greatly reduced rate.
