“From little tiny kids to people who just want to rock, to grandmas and grandpas who just love music,” that’s who will stand up and take notice of The Green’s Hawaiian reggae, says Zion Thompson, the band’s guitarist/singer.
The Green, along with the Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad and guest Chris Boomer, will perform a reggae show at 8 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16, at the Paradise Theatre, 215 Grand Ave., in Paonia.
Four guys from Hawaii make up The Green, a band that released its self-titled debut album last year landing in Billboard’s 2010 Year End Top 10 Reggae Chart, according to a news release.
The album also was iTunes’ Reggae Album of the Year, won Best Reggae Album at Hawaii’s 2011 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards. More than 20,000 copies of the album have sold.
Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad formed in Rochester, N.Y., and released its debut studio album “Slow Down” in 2006.
“The five masterful musicians weave layers of complex music within a reggae framework and may be one of the most diverse bands in the genre,” according to a description at JamBase, online music community.
Tickets are $15 in advance, and $17 the day of show.
