The Merry Rockers are a group of friends who met while studying at Berklee College Of Music in Boston, MA. The group was formed by singer/songwriter Marissa Lelogeais (Mar) in 2011. One year later, they self-released their debut album “The Fruit Of Life,” recorded at 9B Studios in Milford, MA, and produced by Toft Willingham of rock reggae group Spiritual Rez. While taking a class on the music and life of Bob Marley at Berklee, Mar found that she identified with not only the pounding drums, the rhythmic guitar, the thumping bass but also the message of reggae music. She knew what Bob Marley meant when he said “Get Up, Stand Up, Don’t Give Up The Fight.” Mar has had to fight all her life because she was born three months premature which resulted in her having to cope with significant learning disabilities, Cerebral Palsy, and low vision. This only fueled her love and passion for life and reggae music. So moved was she by the story of the people of Jamaica and the messages of hope and love in the songs of bands such as Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, John Brown’s Body and Spiritual Rez, that she began writing reggae songs in earnest. This provided her the opportunity to share the stage with many of her favorite bands and artists such as Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, Tubby Love, Mike Love and Cas Haley, to name a few!
