Information/Write-up

Formerly cool Canadian moms and dads of all ethnicities have fond memories of Messenjah. Back in the 1980s, Bob Marley had left an indelible impression on popular music and the band behind tunes like "Arrested" and "Cool Operator" found widespread success with tours that focused on a burgeoning reggae stronghold: college campuses. Not long after releasing their debut album, Rock You High, Messenjah became the first Canadian reggae band to be picked up by a major music label, Warner Music Canada, and even scored a minor hit in Jamaica, 1984's "Jam Session."
