The story of JOLLY starts with four guys growing up in New York City. They attended public school, shared an affinity for 90s rock, and were all fans of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

On an average temperature day in November 2006, all four guys separately decided to start looking to form their ideal band. One Craigslist reply, one high school reunion, and one awkward conversation later, JOLLY’s current lineup, Anadale, Joe Reilly, Anthony Rondinone, and Louis Abramson, was established. They began writing and recording songs, and posting their material on Myspace. A label owner in Switzerland dropped his piece of cheese when he heard JOLLY and offered them a record deal, and suddenly the band’s plans to record an EP transformed into recording a full-length album.

In July 2009, JOLLY released their debut album, Forty-Six Minutes, Twelve Seconds of Music, under Galileo/ProgRock Records. JOLLY created a small buzz, and one person even said it was one of their favorite albums of the year. The album contained binaural tones, which sound like “woo-woo-woo-woo,” sound, but scientific research shows that they actually can enrich feelings of relaxation, focus, creativity, and happiness.

In April 2010, JOLLY flew over an erupting volcano to get to Europe to play a small tour with Riverside and Pure Reason Revolution. The airplane food was salty and the flight was long, but despite the hardship, JOLLY created a buzz, which led to a record deal with InsideOut Music/Century Media Records.

In March 2011, JOLLY released The Audio Guide To Happiness (Part 1), the first of a two-part series that is scientifically designed to bring a listener to a state of true happiness. The band collaborated with a professor and a few grad students at a nearby university, who conducted studies on over 5,000 subjects to perfect the usage of binaural tones to optimize the JOLLY listening experience. It was the peak of the band’s pretentiousness, but also a very rewarding undertaking.

After releasing part one of The Audio Guide, which received critical acclaim and was deemed by two people one of the top albums of the year, JOLLY toured the US and Europe. Again, the airplane food was salty and the flight was long, but the band watched reruns of Friends on the small screens on the back of the airplane seats to pass the time. Shortly after returning from tour, Mike Portnoy asked JOLLY to open for his band Flying Colors at Best Buy Theater in Times Square. He even said: “I am a big fan of the last two Jolly albums and handpicked them to open the Flying Colors show in NYC.”

In October 2012, Hurricane Sandy struck New York City hard, including JOLLY, destroying Louis’ home, which also functioned as the band’s practice space and recording studio. All of Louis’ possessions and a lot of the band’s equipment were ruined. Needless to say, the members of JOLLY were devastated, but they tried to remain positive. The timing couldn't have been worse; the band was in the midst of finalizing The Audio Guide To Happiness (Part 2), and had to break away from the album to throw out Louis’ belongings and completely gut his home. Louis even moved in with Joe temporarily, and they watched Wheel of Fortunate almost every weeknight. In need of new equipment, JOLLY started a fundraising campaign, and their incredible fans came through in a big way to help the band rebuild after this major disaster.

The Audio Guide To Happiness (Part 2) was released in March 2013, along with a European and US tour with Riverside. The two bands had an instant connection and the Riverside guys would often given JOLLY wedgies, swirlies, and wet willies. JOLLY went on the tour with Scale the Summit in the fall, and played some more shows with Mike Portnoy's new band The Winery Dogs.

In February 2014, JOLLY was lucky enough to be part of the Progressive Nation at Sea 2014. The festival firmly marked JOLLY's place in the progressive rock world. They will be taking the stage this fall to headline one night of ProgPower Europe.

Over the years, JOLLY has cultivated a number of musical styles and abilities. It's unknown what JOLLY will do with the wide range of possibilities in their creations. Maybe polka, maybe death metal, maybe TV themes, maybe a fusion of the three. Only time will tell.

Update

Added

JOLLY is a progressive rock band from New York City that takes DIY very seriously. We write and produce our own music in our home studio as well as create our own live action and animated videos; all with no budget whatsoever. Aside from the fun stuff we also fund our own tours, ship our own merchandise, manage/design our own webpages, design the album art/merch, moderate our own band therapy sessions, and handle every other subtlety that comes with running a band. Since every aspect of JOLLY is done in house and we have the greatest fans in the world, we find ourselves in a unique position. We are on the verge of achieving our most important goal: working full time directly for only you, our fans!

We have recently ended our relationship with our record label Inside Out Music in order to make this kind of relationship possible. They have been great to us, but we just can't seem to make it work financially with the current current business model.

The biggest puzzle for any band to figure out is how to start making a living from music before the reality monster eats you alive (bills, families, age). To make things even more confusing, bands need to find a way to make a living while building their fan base in hopes to get to that goal of financial freedom, but all the while having to keep a flexible schedule for touring. With half the band already married, and babies on the horizon, it's a race against the clock. We are in the home stretch! We MUST find a way to prevent JOLLY from becoming a "hobby" and slowly falling lower and lower on the priority list. By making JOLLY officially a full time job, we all insure that it stays right at the top, no matter what.

Luckily, by cutting out the middle man and creating content monthly for our fans, we finally have the chance to solve this rubix cube. At the same time, we'll be giving you more content, and making our bond with you even stronger than it already is. Releasing songs roughly on a monthly basis allows us the chance to shine the spotlight on each new JOLLY song, and give you insight into its meaning, creation, and the JOLLY process. This is a much more intimate way to experience JOLLY's music. But don't worry, this does not mean the end of album releases for JOLLY. At the end of each cycle, we will be releasing the full album in CD and possibly even vinyl formats (if you guys want it). So if you're the type that prefers listening to full albums (and you have the discipline) then resist the temptation to listen until the album is complete and you have the entire track list!.

With the incentives that Patreon allows, not only will we be able to provide sheet music, lyrics, and tabulature, but now we may also give you behind the scenes videos/podcasts that shed light on the content as well as alternate/acoustic versions of the songs.

Oh yeah, and this helps us make our new stupid animated series, "The JOLLYSHOW." (coming soon)

The goal we've set out to achieve from day one is finally here. All we need is your help.

We are here to create for you, and that's all we ever wanted to do. We are FAMILY.

JOLLY loves you.
