Biography

There are two bands using this name

1> A 1960s rock band from Birmingham, England. Formed by Robert Plant in 1966 and formed again in 2010 (same band name, different musicians with Plant). In the 60s the last of several line-ups included Robert Plant and John Bonham who went on to join Led Zeppelin. Also notable, the band's roadie was Noddy Holder.

The earliest incarnation of the group was formed in 1966 by Plant. Conflicts with the band's management led to Plant leaving the group after a few months. He quickly tried to form his own Band of Joy, but it soon folded. A third incarnation of the band, including Plant's childhood friend John Bonham, lasted from 1967 to mid-1968. Their brand of soul and blues was popular with Birmingham mods. The final 60's lineup recorded a number of demo recordings in early 1968, but broke up in May 1968 when a recording contract failed to materialize. In 2010 Robert Plant and Band Of Joy launched a tour - the one musician in common being Robert Plant with a whole new cast of players now called the Band Of Joy.

1967–1968 lineup

* Robert Plant — lead vocals
* Kevyn Gammond — guitar, vocals
* Chris Brown — organ
* Paul Lockey — bass guitar, guitar, vocals
* John Bonham — drums

2010 lineup

* Robert Plant — lead vocals
* Patty Griffin - vocals
* Buddy Miller, guitar, vocals
* Darrell Scott - multi instrumentalist, vocals
* Byron House - bass guitar, vocals
* Marco Giovino - drums and percussion, vocals

2> A Swedish band founded of the friends Hannes Dahlrot, Matti Nilsson & Anton Ingvarsson in Karlshamn during christmas 2003 or more official spring 2004. The music is experimental and quite hard to describe with just a few words since every song differs from the others in style and character. Folk music of different sorts is a big source of inspiration but also surf-music, circus-sounds, balkanbeats and psychedelic jazz are styles that are more or less represented in Band of Joy’s repertoire. The songs are musical adventures that lead you all over the world. Band of Joy is mostly a live-band that suits just as good at festivals, rock-clubs and odd gatherings in the countryside. They have toured everywhere from the dense forests in northern Sweden to bright landscapes of southern Bosnia.

2003-2008 lineup

* Matti Nilsson — guitar, kazoo, crazy noises
* Ola Olsson — bass, crazy dancing
* Hannes Dahlrot — drums, percussion, crazy mind

2009-2013 lineup

* Matti Nilsson — guitar, sitar, kazoo
* Anton Ingvarsson — bass, opera
* Hannes Dahlrot — drums, percussion
