Breaking: Lee Boys pull from NOM's #marriagemarch

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2013-03-15 At 1.05.50 PmI've been chatting with the management team that works with The Lee Boys, one of the two musical acts that the National Organization For Marriage announced as performers at its upcoming "March For Marriage." I informed the team of what they may not know about the NOM agenda, why this booking is sure to garner a lot of unfavorable attention, and how they might be able to make a better choice.

I'm happy to now report that better choice. A band member has confirmed for me that the group is PULLING OUT OF THE GIG. They were not aware of what NOM was all about and they want no part. The only statement this band member wanted to give beyond simple confirmation is to say that "music is about love" and the band "would never want to offend."

Yes, indeed. A great choice.

**MORE: NOManiacs also obtained confirmation
