Fortunate Youth is a collaboration of South Bay reggae stand-outs. Rising from various bands, they've created a phenomenal 6-piece masterpiece bringing more fire to the stage than ever before. Combining rootsy vibes and unique bass lines united with multiple harmonies, boisterous guitar solos, and heavy keys separates 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. Fortunate Youth's objective is to ensure a performance that leaves you feeling euphoric and curious of what might happen at the next show.

In 2011 they supported Tribal Seeds on their nationwide Tribal Youth Tour to spread their conscious music to the nation. F.Y. linked up The Green, from Hawaii, for a Midwest/Westcoast run before jumping back in the studio to record. They have hit the masses promoting only their 6-song EP titled «Up-Lifted EP» and just released their full-length album, «IRIE STATE OF MIND» on July 1, 2011. Fortunate Youth will also be touring very heavily through 2011 including a Naitonwide CD Release Summer Tour.

Upon Releasing their full-length album they quickly rose to #2 on the iTunes Reggae Charts and also locked in a #13 position on Billboard Top 100 Reggae Albums. Receiving great praise for early success Fortunate Youth strives to spread their interpretation of Reggae music to Music Lovers worldwide.

Fortunate Youth toured very heavily in 2012 supporting Headliners such as The Expendables and Tribal Seeds. FY also headlined their own Nationwide Summer of Sweet Love Tour proving they can pull their own weight as well. Making their first international departure, Fortunate Youth played 4 shows in Costa Rica spreading the love of reggae music internationally.

2013 release, «It's All A Jam», hit numerous charts including #1 on Billboard Reggae Charts, #10 Billboard Pacific Heatseekers Chart, #23 Billboard National Heatseeker Chart along with #1 on iTunes Reggae Charts and #46 iTunes Overall Charts.

FY followed the album release with a 55-Show nationwide Headline Tour in which many shows were sold out including the amazing Cali Roots Festival in Monterey, CA.

— Ballyhoo!

Hailing from the east coast, Baltimore alt-rockers Ballyhoo! have been on the road, taking their melodic anthems to the people for over a decade. Their “On Tour Forever” work ethic has taken them all over the country, steadily building a fan base of loyal “Hooligans.”

In 2013, the band cracked the Billboard 200 chart at #189 with their 5th album, “Pineapple Grenade," released on their own label,
Right Coast Records.

In 2014, the album was followed by an EP, “The Cool Down: Vol. 1,”
a collection of acoustic renditions of classic Ballyhoo! songs as well as 3 brand new songs:
“Beach Party,” “ADHD” & “Overnight Sensation.”

2015 brought even more touring and music with the band supporting well known ska-punkers Less Than Jake and Reel Big Fish, Rock/Reggae icons Pepper, while also releasing two singles: “Fast Times” & “Mixtape.” The latter will appear on the band’s new album, “girls." slated to be released this Summer. Ballyhoo! joined forces with PledgeMusic, rallying fans to be a part of the making of this new album. The campaign was a success with well over 100% funding.

Now in 2016 with a new album of songs produced by Paul Leary (Sublime) & Matt Wallace (Maroon 5, Faith No More),
Ballyhoo! is back out on the grind.

— Tatanka

“Tatanka is a record that manages to pay homage to its roots, deliver a couple catchy singles, as well as define Tatanka’s sound as an out of the mold band that is pushing the reggae-rock genre to a new place.” -Tommy Dubs, The Pier

Tatanka encapsulates the heavy roots rumble of the Caribbean, while maintaining the pop sensibilities of the dance-oriented electronic sounds from the Britannica-American reggae scenes. These sounds are what fueled the groups newest album,'Tatanka'. Written over the span of a year and a half, Tatanka recorded their self-titled album at Imperial Sound in San Diego. Reggae rocker Ted Bowne from PASSAFIRE and roots magician The Maad T-Ray of Tribal Seeds feature on a counter-culture wake up call entitled “The Yard”. Jamaican sing-jay Triston Palmer is heard on a bouncy number labeled “Give Green". The tune pays homage to never giving up and believing in yourself. En Young of Tribal Seeds can also be heard throughout the album. The album debuted at #1 on the iTunes reggae charts and #4 on Billboard's reggae charts. The positive lyrics and heavy sounds garnered radio air-play all around the globe.

Tatanka's Sounds In Technicolor EP has racked up over 20,000 downloads and has attributed to the flourishing fan base. This recognition has led to tours across the US and Canada with acts such as Tribal Seeds, Stick Figure, Lee Scratch Perry, Fortunate Youth, Easy Star Allstars, Passafire, and more. In conjunction with a heavy tour schedule, Tatanka has also played a multitude of festivals including California Roots, Powell-a-Palooza, Desert Rocks, Arise, and a plethora of others.

Formed in Denver Colorado by a few college friends, Tatanka has been recognized as «Breakout Artist of the Year» (2014) by The Pier, High Times «Unsigned Band of the Month» (September 2011), and nominated by Westword magazine for «Colorado's Reggae/Jam Band of the Year» (2015). With 2015 providing a large amount of clout, Tatanka will be releasing a remix album of their self-titled record as well as several new singles.

Tatanka's infectious live show is the bridge between the band and the fans. It unifies the crowd with a progressing, pulsing, and positive perspective. Tatanka is always looking to further instill a global vision of unity with their pounding, dynamic sounds and peaceful, harmonious message.
