THE JOHNSONS TO PLAY FIVE PERFORMANCES AT 1999 STATE FAIR

Southeastern Wisconsin’s fastest rising 1980’s cover band, The Johnsons announces five performances at this year’s Wisconsin State Fair. The “Big 80’s Party with The Johnsons” will be headlining at The Activity Dome, Friday, August 6, at 7:30 PM. The Johnsons will return to the Fair for a four day stint at The Heartland Stage, Monday through Thursday, August 9-12, at 6:00 PM.

state fair will be follow-up to a “sleeper” performance at summerfest, where the johnsons attracted a near record crowd for their day and time slot, an appearance at milwaukee county stadium, and an incredibly packed performance at waukesha riverfest in late july.

billed as the big 80’s party with the johnsons, the band has quickly risen to popularity in as little as 9 months becoming one of the most attended traveling live music parties in the state. playing a solid all-80’s song list, the johnsons have been called ‘the best sounding party/dance band in the state.’ the near exact reproductions of all the danceable hits of the 80’s are enhanced by the johnsons’ “better than concert” sound, high-tech light show, various stage antics and crowd participation.
