Ogle County Life | Chicago tribute band gear up for Jamboree


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

In April 1969, a new rock ‘n roll band burst onto the scene and caught the nation’s attention. Born in the Midwest and steeped in elements of jazz, blues, and Latin influences, the Chicago Transit Authority’s, or CTA as they were commonly known, debut album went double platinum. Hits such as “Beginnings”, “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?” and “Question 67 & 68” propelled the band to popularity.

CTA brings Chicago’s “Golden Age” to life 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, which serves pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, chips, soda, water and pastries beginning at 6 p.m.

Campus will be even more festive that evening as the 6th Annual National Straw Sculpture Competition continues, with new sculptures on display all around the south end of campus through August 29.

Local small businesses will often join us on 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 the Pinecrest Grove Community Center, 500 Evergreen Lane, 7 blocks south of Rt. 64 off McKendrie St.
