Maynard Plant, former ASUS President and AMS President, is a member of the Japanese-Canadian pop rock band MONKEY MAJIK, which is currently signed to Binyl Records and managed by the Edwards Entertainment Group. The band rose to success after their 2006 hit singles, “Fly” and “Around the World”. As of 2012, they have released seven studio albums, four EP’s, three physical live albums, three digital live albums, and three compilation albums. MONKEY MAJIK received much acclaim across Japan after their hands-on assistance with the clean-up and rescue during the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, which was later documented and broadcast by MTV Japan on a TV special surrounding their work. Members of the band were chosen “Goodwill Ambassadors” for the 80th anniversary of Japanese-Canadian relations.
