JOLLY ROX came to existence early in 2005. The name and symbol of the band are a rock'n'roll echo of the early pirate skull and crossbones, the world famous Jolly Roger. The band's musical and performing act is mainly classic rock revisiting the styles of present day cult bands like Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Poison, and Toto with a further twist of European glamour. In their first two years, the band toured exclusively but extensively in Tuscan territory, until in 2007 a turning point found them playing live in Milan, Treviso, Turin, Alessandria, and Bologna. Between 2007 and 2008 Jolly Rox opened shows for internationally renowned bands like Nasty Idols, Wednesday 13, Erocktica, Pretty Boy Floyd, Britny Fox, Bullet Boys and Bud Tribe.
