Jah Messengers Reggae Band's Mission is to utilize reggae music as a catalyst to unite all people. The Vision is to ensure that the voices of the oppressed are heard through reggae music. The band's journey began in the late 70's, when six brothers from Jamaica decided to come together as a unit to express themselves through reggae roots music from Jamaica.
The first gigs the band played were at the Daily's Blue Mountain Inn, Pirates Cove in the Flats, and Peabody's Down Under also in the flats. The Band continued to perform in several venues across Northeast Ohio. Those venues includes:

* Agora
* Fox 8 Cleveland
* Mid West Reggae Fest
* Beachland Ballroom
* The Grog Shop
* Caribbean Flavor
* Whiskey Island (Burning River Festival)
* Hessler Street Fair
* Twilight at the Zoo
* Shooters in the Water
* Shaker Skating Club
* Fountain Square ( Cincinnati-OH)
* Private and Corporate Parties

In the middle to late 80's the band went to the studio and recorded “Brand New Place” and “Coming From a Long Long Way” which debut on the reggae scene with relatives success.

During the early 90's the band went on hiatus for a few years and resurfaced in 2000 as the band you see today. Today Jah Messengers Reggae Band is still committed to its mission and continues to plays roots reggae music despite the many changes that reggae music has faced over the years.
Our legacy will be our collections of recordings that can be heard on our CD entitled “Long Long Way”. The songs listed in the “Long Long Way” include;

* Give Me Your Love
* Book of Live
* Music in my Bones
* Thanks & Praises
* Praises Dub
* Jump in Line
* Brand New Place
* Long Long Way
* What Cha Gonna Do
* Bones Instrumental

We are also instrumental in the progress of reggae music in Northeast Ohio, specifically Cleveland where the band is based. Our next step is to take the band to another level and we invite you to join us on this journey.
