Hawaii's break-out reggae band The Green is performing at the Rialto Theatre Wednesday Oct. 23.
The Green debuted Hawai'i '13 with Easy Star Records late last month. The album hit #1 on the Billboard Reggae charts, but the success was short lived because Snoop Lion's Reincarnated knocked them down to the number two spot. At least The Green's reggae career is doing much better than Eddie Murphy's. Murphy is being accused of stealing from lesser known talent and the album isn't even finished. Now that I think about it, Red Light does sound like a Ziggy Marley tune from an Adam Sandler movie.
Special guests include fellow Hawaii native Kimie. I think more talent needs to rise up from Hawaii because it's a crime that Dog The Bounty Hunter and Bruno Mars are some of the faces of Hawaii. Another opening act is Shwayze; apparently, Shwayze has produced five albums since 2008.
