The Green and Anuhea Concert

Some of my old friends and classmates from Kamehameha had just gone on tour across the mainland and were coming into Los Angeles to play at The Mint. Naturally, Lucas and I made sure that we attended so that I could be with "my people" and he could "get culture."

The Green includes core members JP Kennedy, Caleb Keolanui, Zion Thompson and Ikaika Antone.  Now these boys were no ordinary "opening act," since all four guys sing and two guys can play two instruments.  Their first album, "The Green" hit #3 on the Billboard Reggae charts.  They could have definitely had a concert that only starred themselves, but with Anuhea and The Green teaming up, it was nothing short of a awesome treat.  They started off the concert and from the first strum, never let the energy die down.

Anuhea is in the midst of launching her amazing and I'm sure long solo career.  Already after her first album, she is nominated for five Na Hoku Hanohano Awards, which are like the Grammy's of Hawaiian and Local Music back in the islands.  Needless to say, she makes the whole island of Maui and the graduates of Kamehameha proud.

Thanks to Ikaika Sheehan, The Hawaiian Publicist and "The Guy that Has the Goods," we found out about the great concert and were able to pick up some gear while we were there.  Check out both of their websites that we linked for you for more information on their concert tour and their music.  You will truly not be disappointed!
