The Green was one of the first Hawaiian reggae bands to tour extensively on the mainland, as well as going further afield to New Zealand, Japan and other locales. Before becoming a headliner on their own, the band supported bands like Bruno Mars, Rebelution, Michael Franti, Iration, SOJA, and Damian Marley, as well as performed at acclaimed festivals including Vans Warped Tour, Wakarusa, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, and California Roots Festival.
The Green's fourth studio album, Marching Orders, comes out October 20, via longtime label partner Easy Star Records. It continues the group's steady march to the top ranks of their genre and beyond, with early reviews already calling it "innovative" and "imaginative." The Green has a winter headlining tour lined up and recently announced covering much of the U.S., with further touring plans expected to be announced for a busy 2018.
Over the years, Artikal Sound System has united American, Jamaican & Hispanic Reggae culture. Performing nationally and internationally, their collaborations with some of the most influential musicians and artists in the reggae scene have included: The Abbysinians; Apple Gabriel of Israel Vibration; and Biggz General, a descendant of Bob Marley himself. The band has charted #2 on the Billboard Reggae Charts multiple times and has had the honor of sharing the stage with Pepper, Dirty Heads, The Wailers, Steel Pulse, Yellowman, Less Than Jake, The Aggrolites, Jesse Royal, Josh Heinrichs and Skillinjah.
Propaganjah was formed in Central Florida, in early 2016, by lead singer/songwriter/guitarist Rob "Rob Marley" Burr Jr. and percussionist/songwriter/composer Garrett "Ginjah" Riggio. They both share influences of reggae greats, such as Tribal Seeds, Soja, Sublime, Dirty Heads, Steel Pulse, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and a ton of other bands in the realm. Rob's Caribbean influences come from his father's St. Croix/Virgin Island's roots. Ginjah brings some SoCal inspiration and positive vibes from his tenure in San Diego, as well as his work with his charity the Red Road Foundation. The duo linked up with Marlin Sessler (bass), adding his flavorful bass licks, in March of 2016, to form the sound that has been driving the band ever since. Aaron Bergman(Alto Sax) and Jose Piniero(Tenor Sax) hold down the horn section with hooks that resonate through your soul and keep you humming the melody through every song! Lawayne Gabriel(Keyboard) brings his unique influence and style that stimulates your mind with a wide variety of tones that dive right into the forefront of your mind.
Propaganjah has played with numerous regional reggaeand ska acts already; such as, The Wailers, Inner Circle, Less Than Jake, Third World, Ballyhoo!, Resinated, Of Good Nature, Yamadeo, and the Duppies. There is no venue too big or too small for this band. They will bring the party to any atmosphere and keep you on your feet!! Do your ears and feet a favor and stimulate them with the soul and sound of true reggae music, provided by yours truly, Propaganjah.
