The Expendables
The Expendables
The Expendables enjoyed a laid-back lifestyle growing up in Santa Cruz, CA; surfing, skating, partying, and playing music were commonplace. Since 1997, The Expendables have staked their claim in the California surf/rock genre by headlining venues from coast to coast. Blending Reggae, Punk Rock, and 80s style dueling guitar solos, The Expendables have made heads turn and floors shake for years.

The band consists of four longtime friends: Geoff Weers (Guitar and Vocals), Adam Patterson (Drums and Vocals), Raul Bianchi (Lead Guitar) and Ryan DeMars (Bass). The first seven years of their career was fueled with three full-length, completely independent releases. No Time To Worry (2000), Open Container (2001), and Gettin' Filthy (2004), would bring in a combined total of over 40,000 units sold with no physical distribution and no record label.
Fortunate Youth
Fortunate Youth
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.
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.

They have had the honor to share the stage with bands such as Groundation, Toots & The Maytals, The Green, The Wailers, Katchafire, Tribal Seeds, The Expendables, Pepper, Dirty Heads, Natural Vibrations, Tomorrows Bad Seeds and Sashamon.
White Glove Service
White Glove Service
From San Diego to the Bay The White Glove Service has been revealing their creativity to California. There is passion instilled in every aspect of their sound. Each member brings a unique flavor to this medicine we call music. WGS faithfuls have witnessed them killing stages with national acts including Tomorrows Bad Seeds, Fortunate Youth, and Dub Seeds. No city is left disappointed when these four take the stage. With an album right around the corner and an impressive live performance, look out for White Glove.


In late 2010 the road began. Four strong opinions and four wildly different musical ideas collided. Guitarist Aaron Kipper and Bassist Stilz Stoudmire grew up in Fresno California. Their rhythmic and melodic compositions can be soothing and sweet or undeniably intense. Drummer Clayton Kraus took the long road to Fresno from Birmingham Alabama bringing progressive and driving beats. Singer Jacob Caswell moved to California from Seattle in 2008 but didn't meet the guys until November two years later. Lyrics and soul...


All lovers of Reggae, Ska, Punk, Rock, Ska, Dub and any good music in general can appreciate what these guys are doing. Things are only looking up for...
