A change of seasons means it’s time for dub/roots/reggae artist Fortunate Youth to head back out on the road. The group follows up its spring headlining tour with its Fall With Friends Tour, which stops Friday at House of Rock.
They will be joined by Ashes of Babylon (Lake Charles, La., reggae band), The Steppas (roots/reggae from Hawaii) and Ease Up (Southern California ska/reggae/rock band). Doors are at 8 p.m.
Fortunate Youth, a collaboration of South Bay reggae standouts, formed when musicians from various bands teamed up for a six-piece collaboration that combines rootsy vibes with groove-filled bass lines, multiple harmonies, boisterous guitar solos and heavy keys. Fortunate Youth takes a high-energy approach and provides positive stage vibes to give an unforgettable show.
Their 2013 release, “It’s All A Jam,” hit numerous charts including No. 1 on Billboard reggae charts, No. 10 on the Billboard Pacific Heatseekers chart, No. 23 on the Billboard National Heatseekers chart along with No. 1 on iTunes reggae charts and No. 46 on the iTunes overall charts.
