Aloha From Hawaii Kona 2018
Time & Location
About The Event
Music has been a blessing since the beginning for the humble members of The Green. It is only by looking into the past that one can fully grasp the immense accomplishments and unparalleled journey for a small group of musicians from the island of Oahu. Countless miles of touring and 4 studio albums have led them to become recognized as ambassadors of Aloha, helping represent Hawaiian people and culture to the world through their craft.
Since forming on O’ahu, Hawai’I, in 2009, The Green has become one of the most successful and beloved bands in the reggae genre. During their relatively short career, the band has been awarded a Best Reggae Album nod from itunes (2010, for their self titled debut), 3 coveted Na HokuHanohano awards in their native Hawai’I (2014, including group of the year, Reggae Album of the year and Entertainer of The Year), and 2 #1 Billboard Reggae charts debuts, along with charting on the Billboards top 200. Not bad for a band that was formed by 6 members of Hawai’I’s tight knit music scene to record a few songs and have some fun.
The Green was one of the first Hawaiian reggae bands to tour extensively on the mainland, as well as going further afield to New Zealand, Japan and other locales. Before becoming a headliner on their own, the supported bands like Rebultion, Iration, SOJA, Bruno Mars, and Damien Marley, as well as performed at acclaimed festivals including Vans Warped Tour, Wakarusa, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, and California Roots Festival.
Iration is an alternative / reggae group of musicians formed in Isla Vista, CA A deep-rooted reggae influence is fused with elements of rock and pop to create smooth original sounds – “we’re all about luv”, states the band
Iration has been touring nationally since 2008n performing at national festivals like Lollapalooza, Outside lands, Hangout, and many others. These Hawaiian-bred musicians look forward to spreading their original sound and Aloha spirit all the while never forgetting to get a surf or round of golf in when possible
