On Stage with “The Green”

The winners of the Reggae Album of the Year for the 34th Annual Na Hoku Hanohano Awards was the group “The Green“.

It just happens to be that “The Green” is my favorite group right now so I was thrilled to hear that they would be performing at the Na Hoku Hanohano Awards.

They rocked the Convention Center that night!

What many folks might not know, is The Green’s self-titled debut album was named iTunes Best Reggae Album of 2010!

Well I was fortunate enough to be allowed into the Convention Centers Main Ballroom at 3:30 for their sound check and that was a hoot!

I asked lead singer Caleb Keolanui if I could come on stage and he said come on up!

They played some chords while the sound folks at the convention center tweaked the audio so that it would be the best it could be for both the television audience as well as the live audience.

The Green then busted out a couple songs for just the few folks that were in the room at the time.

This was the second time that I’ve gotten to check out The Green in person.

Later in the evening after the Na Hoku Hanohano Awards were over… members of The Green were spotted at The Shack in Waikiki for an after party that I’ll be posting about soon enough.

I’d like to thank The Green for allowing me access to their sound check and for just being a great band in general.
