Fortunate Youth is a collaboration of South Bay reggae stand-outs. Coming from various bands, they’ve created a phenomenal 7 piece bringing fire to the stage. Combining rootsy vibes and heavy bass lines united with multiple harmonies and boisterous solos distinguishes Fortunate Youth from every other mainstream reggae band. With their high energy approach and positive stage presence they provide an unforgettable show to every music fan.

I also highly recommend checking out some of their live acoustic vids from MoBoogie.
