The Natti Love Joys are a roots rock reggae band that have been playing live since 2003.

They consist of husband and wife duo Anthony "Jatti" Allen and Sonia "Marla" Allen (formerly Sonia Abel). Jatti was previously the bassist for the reggae group The Congos while Marla originates from the cult all female reggae group Love Joys where she recorded two albums under the legendary Wackies label run by Lloyd Barnes (Bullwackie). The Love Joys consisted of Sonia Abel and her cousin Claudette Brown. Family obligations have kept the Natti Love Joys off the circuit but are now poised to return with a collaboration between Darkwa Owusu-Tieku of FocalPoint and Nicolas Da Silva of FlashTV.

The Natti Love Joys are also the founders of CAMP REGGAE, a reggae musical festival deep in the Tennessee mountains that celebrates the outdoors and promotes the importance of family. They are also three time recipients of Atlanta's Peach Drop awards as the most influential reggae band.

Their song "All I Can Say" is on the Saints Row reggae radiostation.
