Carlos Jones and the PLUS Band

“Carlos Jones is a great band, one of the best in America.” – Sirius XM Satellite Reggae DJ Dermot Hussy from “The Joint!”

“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 galvanizing roots-reggae. Jones and his PLUS Band were voted Best Live Act in Cleveland at the 2004 Scene Music Awards and since then have won the award for Best Reggae/World Act every year, culminating in being given permanent “All Star” status in 2007. They maintain a hectic pace of gigging at clubs, private events and festivals, playing out every single weekend. As a result, the band’s soulful rhythms and heartfelt vocals have made it one of Cleveland’s top draws for close to a decade.” Cleveland Scene Magazine

“Once I calmed down the soothing reggae sounds of Carlos Jones started to flow through me.  I lost myself in the groove.
