OFFICIAL HOMEPAGE


The Jolly What!

Biography

The Jolly What! is an indie rock band from Delaware. Formed in 2007, The Jolly What! started as a recording project by college students Mark Degz and Brian Lafferty. The band is said to have humbly recorded its first full length LP Life Is My Favorite Sport (2009) with a barely functioning mac computer.  Nevertheless, the quality was apparently enough for college radio DJs.  D'Wyght Lightning of WCEW 107.7 FM described the sound as "water color paints and grain alcohol amplified".  


The band completed its sophomore album, So, You Wanna Be A Quitter? in 2011. The album's first single, Topanga, struck a chord with Boy Meets World fans across the country and footage from the group's 2011 World Famous Whisky A Go Go tour was even featured on the television series Selling LA. 


After completing their 2011 tour, The Jolly What! got busy crafting the songs that would make up its third studio album, Surviving The Supervolcano, released in 2013. It was mixed and mastered by Philly Recording legend, Mike Tarsia (Sigma, David Bowie, Hank Williams Jr.), as well as Mike Tate (Beach Boys).   


In 2014, the album's lead single Girl Of My Dreams was nominated for a Homey Award for best alternative song by 93.7 WSTW FM and The Jolly What! was picked to compose the award winning radio Keenan Auto Body Inc. jingle, which was featured on every Philadelphia Eagles 94.1 WIP radio broadcast that NFL season. 

 
In 2015, The Jolly What! was honored to be chosen as a finalist in the Out n' About Magazine Musikarmageddon contest, while TJW! co-founder Brian Lafferty, experienced major league success playing his custom made guitar on the main stage at the critically acclaimed Big Barrel summer country music festival, with the Born Sisters and stars like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Meryl Haggard, and Miranda Lambert.  


In 2016, The Jolly What!'s music continues to spread across the US playing festivals of +/- 29,000 people, with an exciting new album expected in 2017.
