Get Ready to Rock

March 04, 2019

Hey Walla Walla, get ready to rock out March 8-10 at the 8th Annual Walla Walla Guitar Festival. This 3-day fest will showcase 25 bands performing in 10 different venues, all within walking distance of downtown. Whether you’re a Stratocaster fan or prefer the sweet sounds of the Martin acoustic, you’ll find a whole lotta love at the WWGF Opening Concert, the multi-venue kick-off party, the Large Show, the Acoustic Showcase, Jazz at the Fest, and more.

The shows will feature such legendary hit-makers as headliner Peter Rivera of Rare Earth, the BMA-winning and Grammy-nominated Danielle Nicole Band, Randy Oxford’s All-Star Reunion, featuring Patti Allen, and the Coyote Kings with Tiphony Dames and special guest Too Slim. Tip: don’t miss their new CD “Rocket” pre-release party at the large show. Venues will include our own Marcus Whitman Ballroom, the VFW, the Eagles, and many more. After the fest, keep the party vibe going at the Gesa Power House on March 23, when the Seattle Rock Orchestra plays Led Zeppelin. The SRO will utilize strings, brass, woodwinds, percussion, and dynamic guest vocalists for a unique combination of Led Zep rock and a night at the Symphony.
