THE GREEN
THE GREEN
Formed in 2009 on Oahu, Hawaii, The Green "fuses late 1970s-era dub-heavy roots reggae with strands of contemporary rock/pop/R&B and sporadic indigenous Hawaiian musical and lyrical references" (Billboard). Shortly after the release of their debut album (2010), The Green began a heavy touring cycle, including runs with Rebelution and SOJA, Vans Warped Tour, and internationally in Japan, New Zealand, and Guam. In fall 2012 after the release of the #1 Billboard Reggae Album "Ways & Means," the sextet completed their first headlining U.S. tour, including multiple sold out dates. This spring The Green embarks on the Take Me On Tour, debuting songs from their third album, slated for release on Easy Star Records later this summer. The Green’s first two albums combined have sold 50,000 copies worldwide.
NATURAL VIBRATIONS
NATURAL VIBRATIONS
Maybe it's because both Jamaica and Hawai'i lie close to 20 degrees latitude north. Maybe it's just the island thing. Whatever it is, reggae pulses through Hawai'i, influencing artists like no other genre of music. None have achieved the level of popularity and acclaim of Natural Vibrations, who incorporate this Jamaican music foundation and Hawai'ian vibe with the pop, rock, and rap music of today to create their own unique sound.

Formed in 1993 as a group of friends getting together at backyard parties in Kahalu'u on Oahu's Windward side, before they knew it Natural Vibrations were performing locally, recording, and touring on a regular basis. Today, they are one of the most popular bands in Hawai'i, and gaining ground quickly on the Mainland and beyond.

Natural Vibrations, also known as Natural Vibes, Natty Vibes or simply Da Vibes by their countless fans, describe themselves as a "wild, sexually explicit, three-ring circus-like, hard-partying, fun-loving, pop/rock/reggae band." Critics have praised their straight-ahead, no-holds-barred pop/rock/reggae style, blended with their sweet treatment of classic, timeless love and relationship themes. Natural Vibrations' homegrown songs are "rootsy, funky, rock steady and romantic, with a touch of dub," and shows the growth and progress of The Vibes as a band that is ready to break out and become the next major international artist from Hawai'i.

Although Natural Vibrations is comprised of six very different personalities, the synergy between them is extraordinary and comes together on stage, creating a dynamic visual/musical experience. Their fans pack the front of the stage, dancing and singing along with every song. Their musical backgrounds are varied...citing influences from Prince and Michael McDonald to Bob Marley and UB 40. Each member of the Vibes plays multiple musical instruments as well as contributes to the band's songwriting, and five of the guys trade off on lead vocals, adding to the strength and diversification of the show.

BILLY VAN
Billy Van is a young producer from the Midwest making a serious run at the EDM scene. With a strong musical background and the willingness to push the envelope, his works range from gut‐wrenching dubstep to acoustic pop.

Stepping out of the producer role and into the artist spotlight, Billy has put together an EP of remixes. Billy Van's debut dubstep album features remixes of LMFAO, Breathe Carolina, Chris Brown, Lights, and Eiffel 65. This mix of classic hits and current jams has something for everyone. Featuring the unique musicality that Billy brings to his dubstep and the signature growling basses and wobbles, this EP isn't one to skip over. It is a free download at http://billyvandubstep.com/
