Chicago tribute band set for Jamboree


MOUNT MORRIS – The Mt. Morris Jamboree is pleased to announce the return of Chicago Tribute Anthology to our band shell stage for a free two-hour concert on Aug. 20, from 7-9 p.m. 

In April of 1969, a new rock 'n roll band burst onto the scene garnering nationwide attention.  Born in the midwest and infused with elements of jazz, blues, and latin influences, the first album by "Chicago Transit Authority", or CTA as they were commonly known, went double platinum.  Such hits as “Beginnings,” “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?,” and “Question 67 & 68” propelled the band to popularity.

CTA brings to life the 'Golden Age' of Chicago by meticulously recreating many of the great songs from the first 11 albums. Members include Tom Anderson, Paul Bata, Terry Geraci, Paul Mabin, Chuck Parrish, Reed Pauley, Dan Peters and John Springbrunn.

Concessions for the evening will be provided by the Mt. Morris Senior Center, serving pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, chips, soda, water and baked goods starting at 6 p.m. 

The Campus will be extra festive that evening as the 6th Annual National Strawsculpting Competition continues, with new sculptures on display all around the south end of the Campus until Aug. 29.

Local small business vendors will often be joining us on the Campus with fresh produce and crafts as well as Grandpa's Ice Cream truck. 

In the event of inclement weather, our rain location will be Pinecrest Grove Community Center, 500 Evergreen Lane, 7 blocks south of Rt. 64 off McKendrie St.
