Walla-Pa-Looza 2012 Band Announcement

Well, I’m back! Actually, I never left – I just keep getting myself involved in all kind of things like changing jobs, Johnsburg Junior Skyhawk Football, Johnsburg Baseball, Fiesta Day Committees – you name it, I’m probably involved in it somehow. But now it’s time to focus on bringing Johnsburg the best possible entertainment our budget will allow.

So without going on and on forever – here is the line up for 2012 Walla-Pa-Looza main stage brought to you by The Chicago Sun Times! Yeah we went all corporate on ya!

Our first band comes to us as the winner of the Walla-Pa-Looza 2012 Battle of The Bands. Please welcome White Shadow.

The next band is a local Johnsburg product. They have been playing the local bars and sound great – Dollar Giraffes.

So, there you go. The Walla-Pa-Looza 2012 lineup.

We know you have a lot of choices here in McHenry County and we are grateful that you choose us every year to both be entertained and to help the community. So, mark down the date and plan ahead. We are very excited to bring these five bands to the stage this year.

Walla-Pa-Looza cannot help the organizations and families we help without all of the help that you give by just showing up. Thank you for your support and we will see you at the Johnsburg Community Club, July 28th. The gates opens at 12:00.


PS – Don’t forget we have our 3rd annual Battle of The Bands contest on our second stage too!


  • Walla-Pa-Looza gets better every year. All proceeds go to local Cancer victims.
    Where can you have this much fun, for such a great cause?……Nowhere.
    We hope to see everyone 7-28-2012.

  • Every year we look forward to what the Walla-teers have brought to Johnsburg for our entertainment! And this year just out did all of the others! This is The Underground Fitness Club’s favorite Non-For-Profit Organization because it hits so close to home with all of our friends and family.

    This event is great for the whole family! Don’t miss out on a great day and night in Johnsburg with fabulous activities for the kids, awesome music for you and of course cold beer for everyone.
