Formed by four friends in Oahu in 2009, The Green blends roots reggae with traditional Hawaiian vibes, creating an unmistakable island sound that has brought multiple awards and critical acclaim to the rhythmic group. Made up of soulful singer Caleb Keolanui, often referred to as the “harmony master,” guitarist J.P.

The Green is currently promoting the release of their recent album, Hawai’i ’13, which has been met with rave reviews by critics. Their self-titled debut album, The Green, reached number three on the Billboard’s Reggae Chart and remained in the Top 10 for 25 weeks.

For both shows, The Green will be joined by the soulful, fun-loving Common Kings, whose head-rocking beats, infectious rhythms, and emotive melodies create a dynamic and impassioned sound. Producing phenomenal pop hits infused with their love for Polynesian roots; rock, reggae, and R&B influences; the Common Kings create a live show that is as soothing as it is exhilarating.

The group’s impressive resume includes sold-out shows in Hawaii, Los Angeles, Guam, Tokyo, and Australia, a dedicated legion of fans, and more than seven million YouTube views of their independently produced hits, including “Alcoholic,” “Wade In Your Water,” “No Other Love,” and “Fly.”
