The Green formed on O‘ahu, Hawai‘i, and despite all the time spent away from home, Hawai‘i never left the band’s day-to-day life on the road. In almost every state, the band met Hawaiian ex-pats, driven away from their home state for reasons both economic and social. The Green’s concerts became a place where Hawaiian natives could gather and for one night, share a bit of Aloha spirit from the Pacific islands they call home. Their sound blends roots reggae with traditional Hawaiian vibes and will be performing at the GREENROOM FESTIVAL Hawaii on Saturday, September 10.
