CLEVELAND REGGAE ARTIST CARLOS JONES TO BE HONORED
Cleveland, Ohio – Little Fish Records (LFR) announced today that internationally acclaimed reggae artist, Carlos Jones, will be honored at the 4th annual “In Celebration of – A Tribute to Carlos Jones” event, to be held on Sunday, November 22, 2015 at The Beachland Ballroom, 15711 Waterloo Rd., Cleveland, Ohio 44110; 216-383-1124. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at http://www.beachlandballroom.com/tickets. Proceeds will go to support Purple Heart Homes and Cleveland Rocks – Past, Present, and Future.
The event was the brainchild of local folk artist / comedian – Charlie Weiner, who wanted to do something “to recognize and celebrate those who have filled the cultural coffers of our beloved Northeast Ohio, especially with their music - a little attaboy and a hat tip to those who give so much of themselves. It’s a lovefest and a big thank you hug to those who have contributed to the beauty and wonder that is our home.”
Carlos Jones will be the fourth honoree after Alex Bevan, Pat Dailey, and Michael Stanley. He’ll be honored not only for his impact to our cultural heritage, but for his unending contribution of time to help end hunger, bring about understanding, and promote the concept of peace in and for our city, according to Weiner.
The tribute will feature various groups performing and interpreting the music of Carlos Jones, including members of the PLUS Band, Umojah Nation, Dave Katz (from Ekoostik Hookah), Big Ship, Prayer Warriors, Colin Dussault, Alex Bevan, Robin Stone, and Outlaws I&I along with other special guests. .

They also enable and encourage communities to form Chapters to support their local veterans, and have implemented programs to renovate homes for veteran homeowners. www.phhusa.org
