Winner of the V-Roys contest… Travis Hill, congrats! Thanks everyone for commenting, the answer of course was the band’s original name was The Viceroys but they had to shorten to The V-Roys due to the reggae band with the same name. I had never heard the Viceroy cigarettes story though…could it perhaps be a combination of both?

Really I think the V-Roys is a much better name so I think it worked out. To tie it back to reggae, enjoy this video of The V-Roys backing Steve Earle doing their version of  The Slickers classic song Johnny Too Bad.
