The Jolly Boys


The Jolly Boys are a mento band from Port Antonio, Jamaica. They formed the band in 1945 and had a lot of commercial success in the late 1980s and 1990s among reggae and world music fans.

They became the house band at the GeeJam hotel in Port Antonio and then in 2010 they released an album filled with cover songs done in their style. The album included a series of popular songs like “Rider on the Storm,” “Golden Brown” and “Satisfaction.”

I’d say that the Jolly Boys provide perfectly happy music to start off your week.
