The Jolly Brothers Band - Typical Barroom Scene (1978)



The Jolly Brothers Band were/are from Missouri. Other than that I could hardly find anything about these guys. They have a Myspace page, but they don't seem to be updating anymore. Still, there are some songs on their playlist there that aren't on this album. And this album is here by courtesy of my French Connection (Luc & Jacques). This album should appeal to all of you fans of the more Country oriented Southern Rock band, like The Outlaws. Not Country Rock of the lame sort, this definitely has more bite to it. Some of the vocals remind me of Billy Jones of The Outlaws. But The Jolly Brothers Band sure are a band of their own. Splendid album, very much worth your time checking out. Not a typical barroom scene...

the Jolly Brothers came to Jefferson City, MO in the late '60s. Norman was in my graduating class at Jefferson City Senior High School in 1969. He had a well developed talent on the keyboards even then. He and his brother, Al, have been making music ever since in local bars and in their recording studio in Panama. Norman has, of late, been playing on Saturday nights at Moose Bros. BBQ & bar in Russellville, MO. Still sounds good!

I worked the door at 4th and Pine in St. Louis and the Jolly Bros were my favorite band. Did a little fishing with both Norman and Al, and still have the album in my collection. Bill Elmore
