Carlos Jones and the Plus Band are mainstays on the Greater Cleveland concert circuit. They’ve drawn huge crowds at Wade Oval Wednesday, Edgewater Live, and the Tri-C Jazz Fest.

Jones and his band make their University Heights debut on Aug. 1, at 7 p.m., at Walter Stinson Community Park. If Facebook RSVP’s are to be believed, city officials are expecting more than 2,000 people to attend.

Carlos Jones has been entertaining audiences for more than 35 years throughout the eastern half of the United States, first as a member of the roots reggae group I-Tal, and then with the legendary First Light, before pursuing a solo career with his current group—the Peace, Love, Unity Syndicate (aka “The P.L.U.S. Band”). Choosing to focus on bringing a positive message with his music, Jones has continued to win a diverse group of new fans everywhere he plays.

The Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council (NOPEC) is sponsoring this Summer Concert Series show.

Three food trucks—SmoQued BBQ, Off the Griddle, and Chef Grey Wolf—will serve food starting at 5:30 p.m.

Sirius XM DJ Dermont Hussy calls Carlos Jones and the PLUS Band “one of the best in America.”
