Parma’s All Faiths Food Pantry works hard to make sure that low-income seniors and disabled people in Cleveland’s western suburbs have the food they need, delivering it to people who can’t get to food pantries or groceries.
Now for the 11th year, it’s presenting its annual benefit, once again at the Music Box. In the past it’s been “Reggae for Food,” but this year it’s expanded both the number and variety of performers and renamed itself “Music Feeds People.”
Yes, there’ll be reggae, with Umojah Nation, known for its female singers who keep the stage awash in color and movement; longtime local reggae purveyors Jah Messengers; the area’s most popular reggae performer Carlos Jones; and local reggae pioneer Dave Smeltz, who founded I-Tal back in 1979, Cleveland’s first reggae band to cross over to a rock audience. But Brian Henke will bring his acoustic finger style guitar playing, and Charlie Mosbrook and Alexis Antes, two of the area’s best acoustic guitarist-singer-songwriters, will be sharing their emotive, heartfelt tunes.
Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door.
