The Hippy Boys

Lloyd Charmers

The Hippy Boys was formed in 1968 by Lloyd Charmers. The Hippy Boys usually are confused with The Upsetters. For a reason. When The Upsetters song called "Return Of Django" became a hit in England, Perry and his crew were invited on a six week tour of Britain - a first for a reggae band. However, in a spectacular case of bad timing, the original Upsetters couldn't make the trip, so Perry had to hustle together a new crew. A young group named the Hippy Boys became the new Upsetters.

The band included guitarist Alva "Reggie" Lewis, organist Glen Adams and brothers Aston 'Family Man' Barrett on bass guitar and Carlton Barrett drums respectively.
