The Jolly Boys

The 70 year old lead singer brings his Jamaican mento band to Sydney Festival

This event has finished

From Port Antonio, Jamaica, this band charms with a fusion of traditional mento and contemporary music flavours. The Jolly Boys are the true sound of Jamaican indulgence, reworking the pre-reggae mento musical style of 1950s dancehalls. Well-seasoned and ever energetic, the Boys combine a raw and rhythmic feel with lead singer Albert Minott's vocals, retro stylings andcharisma.
