  1. Aloha! My family and I are traveling to Maui from 11/12 to 11/23. Curious if you will be in the area??


  2. Aloha, so excited to see you again June 3 at Red Rocks! Even more stoked to see you guys 4 nights in a row; Glen Allen, Va, Raleigh NC, Baltimore & ending with the acoustic in Brooklyn at the Knitting Factory! Totally enjoyed your boy J Boog at Reggae on the Block, Hirie also rocked the block & we caught her on the beach in Daytona the night before, totally awesome.

  3. Would love if you put the green album on vinyl! Am i right fellow fans?

  4. When is the album The Green from 2010 going to be back in print?????? I’ve been trying to find it and apparently it’s only available on vinyl please….lord…. put it back on the market I love it!!!! I feel like I can’t live without it! And I can’t wait to see you in Red Rocks in June 2016 Colorado in the house

  5. LOVE you, saw you at Reggae on the Rocks, the most awesome boat concert ever!, in Norfolk & Philly. You might even remember me & my husband, older, he is very blonde, I dance a lot. Your music helped heal my body & soul after 9 grueling abdominal operations. We are retired & travel, my husband booked so many concerts: Collie Buddz & 2Cellos in Cali, Reggae on the Block in Orlando, Jamrock Cruise, which I’m super excited for. I said to my husband, don’t over book us, keep some time open for The Green, he did can’t wait to see you in June at Red Rocks!!! I’ll be the granny in the Fuckin’ Green tee dancing my ass off. Much love to you all =)

  6. Please come to Boston or Providence.

  7. Saw you guys in nashville last year with Iration. Fantastic performance. You guys have really changed my perspective on life. I will never forget what The Green has done for me over the past few years. Thanks for being such a positive influence.

  8. I saw you guys live recently and didn’t get a chance to buy some merch,

    Any way you guys sell merch online?

    I cannot seem to find it

    Mahalo, sending positive vibes from San Diego!

  9. I love your music from old to new! I can’t seem to find any of it in sheet music form though! ): I’m willing to buy, but just don’t seem to know where to look.. Any help would be great! Mahalo!

  10. Big fan turned even bigger. Watched you rock Ft Lauderdale FL. Great live sound and stag presence. Wanted more. Have all my friends listening to you guys and hitting the show. Was wondering when the next album will be out?

    Please come back soon!

  11. Still living last night’s concert at the Gothic in Denver/Englewood.

    Got there early and met JO and JO JO, long time fans, in line. We were 3rd and 4th in line.

    Saw Caleb pop out of a nice ride up front!

    Early arrival scored awesome location just right of the stage on the second level.

    Hirie and her band were awesome and words can’t describe both shows. The green was incredible. Zion, Caleb, Brad, JP, Jordan Ikaika

    After the show got a chance to meet Zion, Hirie, JP. Ikaika said hi and bye he was off to Ft. Collins.

    Hope The Green will return soon, wish I could travel to Texas to see the green, iration, SOJA and j Boog

  12. First heard you guys in L.A at some seafood place about 3 years ago. Have not stopped listening since. Won many birds over with your music, so i thank-you for that also. Its a long shot but you guys should definitely head the UK for a gig.
    Manchester, UK

  13. Just wanted you all to know , I think you are FABULOUS!!!! Saw you for the first time on the 311 cruise and twice again this past weekend. I am now your newest fan!!!

  21. Hey Guys – I was just looking up your albums on the Android Play store and noticed there is a electronic band out of Atlanta using the same name. LOL I was just confused at first because I thought you released a new album! Anyway. I now Have all of your albums! Mahalo as always for the great tunes!

  22. Aloha Guys!

    I just wanted to thank you for making some great music! My family and I are from BC, Canada and we just got back from a holiday in Honolulu. I, being a music aficionado, was searching for some new music when I came across your Hawaii ’13 album. My first introduction intro Hawaiian and/or Reggae music. I must say that the album not only instantly inspired me to go to a couple Jellys locations to grab your other two discs, but it also has changed my musical taste literally.

    Before going to Hawaii all I listened to was METAL. Bands like In Flames, Hellyeah, Demon Hunter, All That Remains, Asking Alexandria, etc. But ever since finding your music, I have been UNABLE to go back and listen to my metal music. Just been playing the three discs non-stop! I don’t know if this is a permanent change or not, but I just wanted to thank you for expanding my horizons and making my already memorable holiday, even better!


    ~ Jackson

    • Jackson…..lots of good music from Hawai’i Nei to listen to….Katchafire, Natty Vibes (NaturalVibrations) Irration, Pepper etc…..check it out Bra….lots of great stuff coming out of the Islands….Pepper will be in Vancouver on Dec 7th @ The Venue…I don’t know where in B.C. you are located but hey….check it out.

      • Awesome! Thanks Sheryl.

        It’s crazy. I started listening to The Green, and then found SOJA through the “Come In” track on Ways & Means, and then from there found Michael Franti thru SOJA’s track “I Believe”. Been loving the adventure! The Green & J Boog just came here (@Venue in Vancouver) on November 19th and it was awesome. My wife and I met JP, Ikaika and Zion after the show. Totally helps that the guys are as cool as their music is good. Was an awesome experience.

        Thanks for the recommendations. I’ll check em out!

  24. Aloha, I attended the Bruno Mars concert in Honolulu, Hawaii back in April 2014, just letting you guys know that you are awesome and I would like to know when you are coming to Maui. Please let us know so we can see you in concert again.

    Belinda Massey and Joyce Zaragosa

  25. Aloha,
    I just wanna say mahalo nui loa for creating positive vibe music. I moved to Cali by myself my senior year of high school (I went to Kamehameha), and without a doubt listening to you made my transition to the mainland so much easier. Keep on jamming away, and sharing your good vibes with everyone. Whenever I get the chance I always tell my friends here in Cali to check you guys out on Youtube, Facebook, iTunes, and of course your website. I may be a Cali boy now, but I will always have the islands with me by listening to your music. I MUA i na koa no ke akua – Continue to move forward warriors of God. God bless! A hui hou. Malama pono.

  26. U guys rocked it hard last night in Sac! Love u guys, can’t wait to see u in Berkeley @ The Greek! My only complaint is that u guys sold NO MERCH! I wanted to buy a few t-shirts, especially the floral pattern u guys projected, but nothing! I looked at ur website and cannot find that specific shirt for sale. Can I get some help?? Haha have $$ in hand, need a XXL. Wuts goooood?! Thanks guys for being such an awesome band…

  27. any chance you guys could post up the chords to count to 3??? thats the jam…

  28. Dear band! much props for your music!
    I’m not only loving your tracks, I have my two little daughters age 4 and 6 requesting your songs on my car stereo daily
    They love Power in the Words, Keep on and Goodvibe Killer best.

    Keep doin what u doin and hope to see you sometime somewhere in my hometown Kralendijk Bonaire in the future..


  29. Mahalo The Green,

    Where do I start? … I went to the East Coast Vibes concert in Gisborne last night and oh my gosh you were everything AND MORE! You were the act that I went to the concert to see and you were more than worth it! I have and know all your albums and love all of your acoustic jams as well! We were so lucky to have you here in Aotearoa! The meanest reggae band out with so much talent. Next on my bucket list is to come and see you live again in your country. So much aroha to you all, and have a safe journey home.

  30. I want to start off by saying you guys are amazing! I found ya’ll through “Come In” because I am a huge Soja fan.. I am actually in a reggae band, RastaMiles, we won best new reggae artist of Virginia for 2013. Just wanted to say, if you guys ever come through Virginia, or the east coast, you got yourself an opening band 😉 We are hitting a rough patch though, we need a bassist and keyboardist. Hope to play a show you guys one day, God Bless.

  31. Heard from my nephew you’re returning to Higher Groundz 2014 in POZO! Might have to visit my california fam and fly down from Alaska again! One hour set this time! “…keep me safe from the storm, and I’ll be there, yes I’ll be there…” happy holidays to ya’ll…

  34. Hello! I am writing from Flagstaff, Arizona! I am hoping some time next year The Green would be able to make a stop at our awesome local venue, the Orpheum. I was hoping to write a letter because its more personal and you all are worth it ;] If i could get a mailing address that would be great. Thank you!

  35. Your show last night at The Warehouse Live in Houston was terrific!
    You guys are so impressive.
    Great musicians, great guys, and the kids at your concert have a memory of a lifetime.
    Thanks for coming to Houston. Please come again.
