MOUNT MORRIS – The Mt. Morris Jamboree is pleased to announce the highly anticipated return of Chicago's oldie's rock and roll band, The StingRays, to our band shell for a free two-hour concert on July 23 from 7-9 p.m.
Everyone fortunate enough to see previous shows by this exciting and engaging act will fondly remember the dynamic stage presence of this wonderful band and will attest to the “do not miss” grade level of their show.
The StingRays play the greatest music ever written and play it with the energy, passion and authenticity of the artists whose music they love. Their music, great rapport with audiences, their look and the famous StingRay moves have made them repeated favorites at festivals, concert series, casinos, clubs, corporate events and parties throughout the Midwest. The StingRays always get the crowd dancing and singing to songs from rockabilly, tons of sixties to the 70's. The band features Frank Rowley on bass and vocals, Al Wagner on drums and vocals, John Quinn on keys, guitar and vocals and John D. on lead guitar and vocals.
The Mt. Morris Moose Lodge will be serving hamburgers, cheeseburgers, chips, pop, water and brownies for the show, starting at 6 p.m.
The Encore Art Gallery on the first floor of Old Sandstone next door will be featuring the Regional Artist's Showcase, presenting the works of seven different Artists from around the region open from 6:30 - 9:00 pm. Encore's Artist in Residence, Annie Timmer will be hosting kids art activities near the Freedom Bell just to the north of the Band Shell during the concert. Local small business vendors will often be joining us on the Campus, including Ken's Black Pearl Coffee and Grandpa's Ice Cream truck. Come join the fun on our beautiful, historic Campus in the center of Mt. Morris, two blocks south of Rt. 64 on Wesley Avenue.
