Clean House Benefit with I-Tal/Carlos Jones/Outlaws I & I/Primal Rhythm/Joe Hunter Trio/The Flavor/The Nazz

When: Sun., Aug. 31, 8 p.m. 2014

Clean House, Inc. is a local nonprofit designed to “educate and empower recovering men through the practical application of ‘twelve step’ principles.” It provides both housing and “spiritual and mental” help for recovering men. The organization recently purchased a property it hopes to rehab and tonight’s Clean House Benefit will put proceeds toward that cause. Headliners I-Tal are one of the first American reggae bands, getting their start way back in 1978 in Cleveland. The band regularly sold out Cleveland venues in the ’70s and ’80s, and really pioneered the scene here. The classic reggae sound is apparent in their take on standards full of laid-back grooves, squealing sax and chant-like vocals. The song “Rockers” has all of the mentioned classic hallmarks of reggae and plenty of virtuosic guitar licks. Carlos Jones, Outlaws I&I, Primal Rhythm, Walking Cane, Joe Hunter Trio, The Nazz 3, The Flavor, and Primal Rhythm will also perform. Errol Porter and Andre Pettis of will MC the event. (Gonzalez)
