Heads up - A.J. Rocco's is serving up a huge portion of unplugged Reggae around 9 PM tonight only - Carlos Jones!! FREE!

From the Carlos Jones website at http://www.carlosjones.com/:

"Carlos Jones is to Cleveland reggae what Jim Brown is to Cleveland running backs: the undisputed champ. With Jones at the forefront of the scene for more than 25 years -- first in I-Tal, then in First Light -- this city's reggae following was practically built upon his back. Devoutly spiritual, Jones is a Bob Marley devotee who eschews dancehall for galvanized roots-reggae. Jones and his PLUS Band were voted Best Live Act at the 2004 Scene Music Awards and Best Reggae / World Act for 2005, and they maintain a hectic pace of gigging, playing out every single weekend. As a result, the band's soulful riddims have made it one of Cleveland's top draws for close to a decade." Cleveland Scene Magazine August 3, 2005
