Pete’s Sake will return to the Mt. Morris Jamboree on Friday, July 7 for a free two-hour concert starting at 7 p.m. at the Reckmeyer Band Shell.
Blending all genres with socially conscious lyrics and new grass instrumentation, Pete’s Sake was founded on diverse backgrounds ranging from banjoist Dan Coutt’s bluegrass, mandolinist and guitarist Josh Naylon’s reggae, bassist Jeff Taylor’s metal, and percussionist Chris Grimm’s rock ‘n’ roll.
From these diverse musical backgrounds, Pete’s Sake delivers a unique and high spirited show that’s sure to please listeners of all ages.
Naylon says of the band, “We’re doing what we love for who we love.”
“That sentiment is easy to see and hear in the ebullient style of their performances. Please come hear for yourself why they’re fast becoming a festival favorite in the region,” said event organizer Larry Ubben.
Concessions for the evening will be served by the Mt. Morris Public Library, who will be providing Italian sausages, hot dogs, chips, soda, water, and bar cookies starting at 6 p.m.
Be sure to come uptown early to visit the Mt. Morris Community Farmers Market, open from 4-7 p.m. every Friday through October, in the parking lot at the corner of Ill. 64 and Wesley Avenue.
Bring a blanket or a chair, or use the benches and join the fun on the historic campus in the center of Mt. Morris on Wesley Avenue two blocks south of Ill. 64.
