Always excited to have RHL in the house!!!
The Right Handed Lefties are named for a unique trait, being left-handed. Original members David Thong and Laura Farrell are both left handed but play the guitar like a righty. What’s up with that? With only 10-15% of the population possessing this trait, it is part of what sets RHL apart. In fact they have become known for their creative mash ups and unexpected reggae inspired beats. The Right Handed Lefties cover many genres of music focusing mostly on the 80’s, 90’s, and today. With killer vocals, outstanding harmonies and a beat to keep you going all night, the Right Handed Lefties never disappoint.
