I just discovered The Jolly Boys earlier on this Summer and fell in love with their music. The Jolly Boys play Mento, which is a roots Jamaican folk music that began before ska and reggae. The Jolly Boys were known for being Errol Flynn’s house band at his parties and now after all these years, the band is making a comeback! Marco on the Bass has a good post about them as well. They have a new album coming out called Great Expectation and have been touring Europe. They do a brilliant cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab”, which you can watch below.
I never liked Amy Winehouse but the Jolly Boys do a fantastic job covering her song.
