Sex, Drugs & Rock ‘n’ Roll: Behind the Scenes in the Cleveland Rock Scene – Cleveland is the city of Rock and Roll. So it’s only fitting one of the most acclaimed journalists in CLE’s rock n roll history returns. Carlo Wolff shares his memories of the golden age of rock, and the sense of freedom and excitement the Rock and Roll scene delivered was electric, and the memories of Clevelanders who made that scene: fans, musicians, DJs, reporters, club owners, and more.

A regular contributor to the jazz magazine, DownBeat, he is the writer of Mike Belkin: Socks, Sports, Rock and Art (Act3, 2017), the author of Cleveland Rock & Roll Memories (Gray & Co., 2006) and co-writer, with Eric Olsen and Paul Verna, of The Encyclopedia of Record Producers (Billboard, 1999).

A native of Dallas, Texas, Wolff grew up in Columbus, Ohio and attended schools in the Boston area, earning a bachelor of fine arts degree with an English major from Boston University. Before he moved to Cleveland in 1986, he lived in Burlington, Vermont and Albany, New York. Wolff lives in suburban Cleveland with his wife, two dogs and a cat.
The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience. The Music Box is presenting this series in partnership with the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. We think the Cleveland History Center is one of the most important museums in Cleveland. An unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about, and support. It is the only museum in Cleveland dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Cleveland. The Cleveland History Center includes two mansions, the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, Research Library, Kidzibits Hands-On Gallery, rotating exhibitions, and the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.
