Now one of rock's elder statesmen, singer Donnie Iris regularly still makes his way from his Pittsburgh home to perform in Cleveland with his backing band the Cruisers.

The guy’s career goes back decades. In 1970, he earned a gold record with the Jaggerz for “The Rapper.” In 1978, he joined Wild Cherry, and in 1979 he formed Donnie Iris & the Cruisers.

That band has continued to chug along, and the group performs on March 28 at the Canton Palace Theatre. Local rockers Hey Monae will open the show.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday.
