The Massillon Museum’s 27th-Annual Island Party, a virtual watch party on Friday, July 16, 7:00 to 8:30 p.m., will be aired on MCTV Channels 21 and 621 and streamed on Facebook and YouTube. Expect the good-time reggae music of Carlos Jones and the P.L.U.S. Band with entertaining MassMu videos during band breaks.
 
Carlos Jones and the Peace, Love, and Unity Syndicate (Carlos Jones and the P.L.U.S. Band) delivers soulful roots reggae with lyrics that concentrate on a message of peace and harmony within the human race and the environment. The group creates a festival-like atmosphere everywhere they play, drawing crowds spanning all ages and backgrounds. The music is uplifting, including many original songs and an array of Bob Marley, Culture, and other recognizable covers. Voted "the Best Reggae/Ska Band" in Northeast Ohio by the Scene Magazine readers' poll, Carlos Jones and the P.L.U.S. Band have appeared onstage with The Wailers and Ziggy Marley. 
  
In advance of the party, a series of promotional videos will be posted to MassMu's social media channels.  Stephanie Toole, MassMu education and outreach manager, will lead viewers in a fun tropical fish-making craft.  In another, Cyrus Ausar of Greatness Cafe will demonstrate his smoothie-making skills and promote an Island-Party-themed specialty smoothie. Jared Gonzalez, who created this year's limited-edition Island Party t-shirt design, will be featured in another segment about the process of creating this year's featured graphic on the tie-dyed shirt, available for sale now!
  
The staff hopes people will organize their own patio and deck parties to share the festive spirit of the traditional outdoor party. A recent interview with Carlos Jones will be the feature of the Museum's new podcast, MassMusings, and will air July 30.
