This event is all ages
Fortunate Youth is a collaboration of South Bay Reggae stand-outs. Rising from various bands, they’ve created a phenomenal 7-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.
The politically-charged Reggae, Latin-Rock band Among Criminals, is as much about the message as they are about the music. Jarrod Pedone (drums) and Bean (bass) lay down the head-turning rhythm, while singer Ryan Gaughan uses the stage and the mic as a platform for his plea for peace.
"People have to stop thinking of themselves and others as Americans, or Muslims or Christians or Black, White, whatever... To be American you need to be a HUMAN, to be Iraqi you need to be a HUMAN, to be Mexican, or Muslim or African you need to be a HUMAN. We all need to realize that we are all connected as humans, and the rest are just petty details that shouldn't provoke prejudice."
"We, as part of the first world, need to start taking responsibility and action for our impact around the globe. Most of us are lucky and privileged to be born where and when we were. We have to realize that the history of shitty political trade policy, and strong-arm political intervention, has made the first world richer while exploiting the people of the third world. Help us take action to help spread the wealth of this word fairly across the globe."
Inna Vision is back, riding the current wave of Polynesian Reggae that is blowing up, and presenting to the public their third full length album appropriately entitled "No Stopping." Their new album delivers a full-fledged original sound that encompasses all the beauty involved with everyday struggles, brought forward through the lens of the Hawiian culture. "No Stopping" is created to inspire listeners in following their dreams and their passions, despite life's many challenges. Each song is chosen with purpose, created with passion, and presented with righteousness. Inna Vision's 2011 Upliftment Tour, co-billing with the legendary Kymani Marley, stopped in Oregon, Vegas, Utah, and the Hawai'i Islands. Now, with their new release, Inna Vision looks to bring it all together and take it to the next level.
