Greater Expectations for The Jolly Boys

Primary tabs

The charismatic Albert Minott, Jolly Boys' lead vocalist & guitarist. Portland has had its share of innovations; think Boston Jerk, birthplace of Jamaican Tourism and more recently Modern Mento. This latest innovation, the brainchild of Geejam Studio's Jon Baker, is masterfully personified by the energy and musical stylings of Port Antonio's very own Jolly Boys. The Jolly Boys have been a mainstay of Portland's music scene dating back to the 1950s. Since then the group has undergone numerous transitions all while maintaining its signature Mento sound.
