Rick Lindy and the Wild Ones to play Mt. Morris June 14


MT. MORRIS — The Mt. Morris Jamboree is excited to announce the debut performance of Chicago entertainers, Rick Lindy and the Wild Ones on our band shell on Friday June 14, from 7-9 p.m. The Wild Ones band was formed in 2000 by veteran Vocalist Rick Lindy, after a five year stretch as the lead singer for Big Guitars from Memphis. He brought along their Drummer Mike Hosman and added Malcolm Didier on bass and Ray Kainz on lead guitar. They released their first CD, 'Wild Side of Town' in 2001 and toured Europe that spring, landing a record deal with Flipside/Amigo Records in Oslo, Norway, leading to another European Tour in 2002. They've been performing rock and roll hits of the 1950s, 60s and 70s as well as surf, rock-a-billy and original songs far and wide ever since. Many people in the area are well acquainted with Rick and the Band from their many years of appearing at the White Pines Lodge, and since he won't be there this year, we're very happy to be bringing him to our historic campus for a two-hour free concert.

Concessions for the evening will be provided by the Mt. Morris Public Library, serving Italian sausages, hot dogs, chips and drinks. Bill's Famous Lemonade stand will be there as well, all starting at 6 p.m. Ewe and Me Acres will have a fresh produce stand with a variety of fruits, vegetables, baked goods, jams, jellies and dog treats on the campus too, from 5-8 p.m.

Please bring a blanket or chair, or enjoy the new benches and join the fun on our beautiful, historic campus in the center of Mt. Morris, two blocks south of Illinois Route 64 on Wesley Avenue and enjoy the free Classic Rock and Roll concert.
