The Mondaynite Jazz Orchestra, also know as MoJO, will present a free Independence Day concert Sunday, July 4 at 1 p.m. in the Camden Amphitheatre as part of the town’s Festival of Independence Weekend.

The local orchestra features a 17-piece instrumental ensemble and vocalist. Band members hail from the Midcoast area from Bath to Belfast, and, sharing a common passion for the genre, try to promote and preserve big band music for our cultural future, said band manager Ray Faria.

Concertgoers are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs for seating.
