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 10 year run, they’ve won a plethora of awards, locally and nationally. The band has been awarded a Best Reggae Album nod from iTunes, multiple Nā Hōkū Hanohano awards and nominations in their native Hawai’i and three #1 Billboard Reggae chart debuts, along with charting on the Billboard Top 200. Not bad for a band that was formed by six 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 tour, the band supported bands like Rebelution, Iration, SOJA, Bruno Mars and Damian Marley, as well as performed at acclaimed festivals including Vans Warped Tour, Wakarusa, Life Is Beautiful, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, One Love Cali Reggae Festival, California Roots Festival and more. Most notable, The Green opened for Bruno Mars in back-to-back sold out shows at Hawaii's iconic Aloha Stadium.
