The Green headlines second annual Greenroom Festival
Na Hoku Hanohano Award-winning reggae group The Green will headline the second annual Greenroom Festival on Sept. 10 at the Waikiki Shell, promoter Tom Moffatt announced.
The Hawaii festival is similar to a Japan-based event with the same named held in Yokohama and supports beach conservation and ocean awareness in the islands. Eco-friendly aspects include recyclable and reusable products along with featured artists and artisans who "strive to preserve our environment for future generations."
The Green will be joined by popular '90s reggae band Big Mountain, Japanese reggae duo Def Tech and Japan-based improv jazz/rock band Special Others.
Along with the music, the Greenroom Festival will feature a Beach Market with local vendors, yoga presentations and more from 3 to 10 p.m. The family-friendly event is open to all ages; tickets are $30 general admission, free for keiki 12 and under. Call (800) 745-3000 or buy online at ticketmaster.com.
The Green are on a brief tour hiatus after spending time in California last month in support of their new single, "Mama Roots" featuring J. Boog. The band reportedly completed recording of a new full-length album in Hawaii earlier this year.
