"Future Prez's lead singer Boe Simeonov sees similarities between the two genres. "The spirit of bluegrass, as with reggae, is communal," he told us. "There are no egos."
“You know the old saying; when life gives you 200 mangoes, make a Mango Tour. Right? Anyone? That seems to be the plan for Palm Beach County reggae outfit Future Prezidents. The group happened upon a fruity goldmine in their backyard, and are turning it into a way to spread their crunchy granola message... Future Prezidents are passing out the mangoes produced by their tree at a group of shows affectionately referred to as "the Mango Tour." But this is about more than simply a symbiotic relationship between band and fan. It's about educating a wider audience about something that means a lot to the Future Prezidents: non-GMO, organic living.”
“4. Future Prezidents I get a nice dose of West Palm reggae boys Future Prezidents as a benefit of my "slight" O'Shea's Irish Pub habit. The bar is known for bringing solid local bands to the table, and Future Prezidents are no different. The irie crew always rocks the small stage, but now that the stage is at SunFest, they couldn't be more stoked. Singer/songwriter Boe Simeonov told me how he felt when he got the news: "I literally jumped out of my bed and then caught myself dancing in the mirror. I kept dancing! I knew I would get a chance to reach out and share our message with a large crowd, the way the songs were meant to be played." Preach it, brother.”
