SEABROOK, N.H. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A bar owner in Seabrook, N.H. is defending his decision to allow a band, accused of having neo-Nazi ties, to continue to play at the establishment as scheduled.
The black metal band Horna, from Finland, is scheduled to play Tuesday April 9 at the Chop Shop Pub. But, a local Antifa chapter alleges that the band has neo-Nazi ties.
Bill Niland, owner of The Chop Shop Pub told WBZ NewsRadio that he did extensive research into the band after hearing these accusations and found no evidence of any ties to white supremacy.
“I absolutely have not. And if I had, I would have absolutely cancelled the show,” Niland said.
Niland said he was offended by the suggestion that he supported a neo-Nazi band.
“I’m in a little town, in a little state, in a big country. How this fell in my lap, I do not know,” Niland said.
