St. Joe's Announces Main Stage Music Acts; Big Carnival, Big Fun, June 4-7

Old favorites and hot new entertainment acts can be
found on the main stage lineup for this year's carnival at St. Joseph Parish.

Taking the stage from 6 to 11 p.m. Thursday, June 4 will be 
six of the hottest DJs in all of Chicago: Alex Peace, CZR, Gino Rock & Romo, E Rock Rodriguez, Kickin’ Da Hype Luis, and DJ Babaloo.

Two bands will get the weekend off to a rocking start on 
Friday, June 5.

** High-energy punk rock/pop punk band Let It Fly
commandeers the stage at 6 p.m. and will take everyone on a two-hour joyride of "music that makes us wanna throw things, in a good way," the three-man band says. Let It Fly counts among its influences The Misfits, Green Day, The Ramones, AC/DC, Blink 182, Foo Fighters and more.

** Maggie Speaks--one of the most popular and
Maggie Speaks
eclectic cover bands in Chicago history--will own the stage from 9 p.m. to midnight.

Saturday, June 6 starts off with a smile, as the World's Honkiest Polka Band plays from 6 to 8 p.m.

The smile turns to a sneer at 9 p.m., as Hairbanger's
Ball, one of America's best and most successful 80's big-hair rock tribute bands, blows away the audience for three solid hours of music inspired by the likes of Metallica, Guns N' Roses, Def Leppard, Motley Crue and more.

Sunday, June 7 will feature Hillbilly Rockstarz
closing out the four-day fest with a bang and a twang.
Hillbilly Rockstarz
The group bills itself as "Chicago's very own country super group, specializing in covering the latest hits in country music, along with many of your classic favorites" and will cover a pickup truck's worth of today's country hits, as well as covers of favorites by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Patsy Cline.

In addition to great musical entertainment, the four-
day event features thrilling carnival rides, fun games of skill and chance, and a food tent will offering such traditional carnival treats as
hot dogs, hamburgers, brats, pizza, Italian beef,
tacos, tamales and corn-on-the-cob. Cotton candy, ice cream, soda and water also will be available. The beer tent will be open as well.

Planning on enjoying all four days of fun? Buy a four-day “all you can ride” wristband for $50 (cash only) through June 3 at St. Joseph School, 5641 South 73rd Avenue (708-458-2927) or the St. Joseph Parish rectory, 7240 West 57th Street (708-458-0501)
