As reported by Rolling Stone, the B-Street band, a professional Bruce Springsteen cover band that often plays 200+ gigs per year, has pulled out of the Garden State Presidential Inauguration Gala. Note, this is a different performance than the Inauguration celebration which will include Toby Keith and Three Doors Down. Initially, the B-street band stated that they would play the show despite detractors, because they had signed a contract to play the 2017 event in 2013. The band stated that financially, they could not risk a lawsuit if they pulled out of the show. However, after some time, the band has changed their position and have decided to pull out of the gig in respect to Springsteen. Of course, Springsteen is vehemently opposed to Trump. So far, the Trump committee has not released a statement on the B-street band's decision. The group has been playing since the early 80s and also played the Obama inauguration galas in 2009 and 2013.
