Turlock, CA (April 7, 2022) – “All my friends know the low rider” you can almost hear the tunes coming to town!

            The Stanislaus County Fair Welcomes one of the most iconic rock bands “WAR”, Friday, July 08, 2022 on the Coors Light Variety Free Stage at 8:30 p.m.  The concert will be hosted by The Hawk, 104.1 and is free with the price of Fair admission.

            “We are excited to welcome this legendary street band to the fair this year,” said Jose Piña, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. “They have amazing hits that I know our guests are going to love!”

            Multi-platinum-selling WAR, the original street band, has been sharing its timeless music and message of brotherhood and harmony for almost 5 decades before millions across the globe.  WAR has sold more than 50 million records since its formation to include ten Billboard Top 10 hits. Top 40 hits include the timeless classics “Why Can’t We Be Friends,” “Low Rider,” “The World Is A Ghetto,” “The Cisco Kid,” and many more. WAR’s influence is still felt in modern times. With samples and nods by artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Flo-Rida, Thomas Rhett, Tupac, Smash Mouth, Janet Jackson, Dave Matthews, Korn, and countless others, it is evident that WAR remains a household name. More recently, LA Weekly declared WAR in the top 10 concerts of 2018. WAR has not only sealed their status as a household name, but has also proven that their music and messages continue to be as relevant as ever today as they have always been.
