The Mt. Morris Jamboree will welcome the 60s tribute band Shindig on Friday, Aug. 4 at 7 p.m. for its debut performance at the Reckmeyer Band Shell.

“Shindig presents a tribute to the 60s and always delivers a trip back to the greatest and most diverse decade of rock and roll music,” said event organizer Larry Ubben. “Covering over 90 different bands from that period of time where music told the story of an entire generation - early 60s, British Invasion, psychedelic, pop, girl groups, Woodstock...are all part of the show.”

Tom Rychter and Tom Benson play guitars and sing, John Murphy plays bass, Sharman Strode sings and Mark Lega plays drums and sings.

The Mt. Morris Senior Center will serve pulled pork sandwiches, chips, soda, water and Dilly Bars at 6 p.m.

A nonprofit organization, the center staff is committed to helping seniors through programs, services and events.

Come to town early and have a look at all the good locally grown produce and other foods and crafts available at the Mt. Morris Community Farmers Market held every Friday through October from 4 to 7 p.m. at the bank parking lot at the corner of Wesley Avenue and Ill. 64.

The Encore! Mt. Morris art gallery will be open in Old Sandstone, just adjacent to the band shell, that evening from 6 to 9:30 p.m. as well, this week featuring the Mt. Morris Public Library's children's S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) show.

The rain location for the concert and concessions is the Mt. Morris Moose Lodge, 101 Moose Drive, just off of East Hitt Street at the same times.

A concert presented by Lyle Grobe on July 14 drew 500 folks, and Dave Weld brought a crowd of 450 last week.
