Cleveland Reggae has always struggled to find the ideal location where the ownership favors Jamaican music and culture. A.J., Rocco's is a small coffee shop in the center of downtown Cleveland and this shop is a ReggaeMusicLovinCofffeeShop. Since 2001 A.J. Rocco's has been serving coffee, food, and Reggae music at their location on Huron Road in downtown Cleveland, Ohio.
A.J. Rocco's does not feature Reggae on a specific night of the week at the time of this writing, but they did feature Crown Sound System for a long period of time and have featured live Reggae bands over the years. A.J. Rocco's also hosted the first Reggae College Radio DJ session which offered over eight DJs from WJCU, WRUW & WCSB. This DJ session completely packed A.J. Rocco's, the crowd was shoulder to shoulder all night long. Quite a memorable night.
The key is that owner Brendan is a Reggae supporter and when music is the subject, he often reaches for Reggae. It is not by plan, but more by instinct.
