Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

On Friday, March 28, John Brown’s Body will come to the stage of The Barkley Ballroom in Frisco. John Brown’s Body formed in Boston in the mid 1990s at a time when there wasn’t what you’d call a U.S. reggae scene. The American bands that played reggae were regional at best, touring little, and many were primarily cover bands of the best-known Jamaican reggae. John Brown’s Body was one of a handful of groups that began touring nationally and created distinctly American reggae, steeped in traditional vibes but incorporating elements from other genres. Policulture will open the show at 9 p.m. Tickets are $18. Visit www.barkleyballroom.com for more information.
