When it comes to reggae, The Green are one of the best acts today. After hearing their self-titled album that won iTunes 2010 Reggae Album of the Year, I had fairly high aspirations for the group even though I’m not a reggae fan. Below is my review of their show on Saturday April 30 at the Key Club in Los Angeles.
I got there 15 minutes into the The Green’s set but felt I didn’t miss a thing. Their was a consistently strong energy from the crowd in response to The Green’s jams. I particularly enjoyed the guitarist’s energy and when he chimed in on vocals. The lead singer and the bass guitarist had great vocals as well. The harmonized vocals was what stood out to me the most and I really enjoyed the hooks on all the songs I heard from them. You can tell this band really works well together and has fun performing.
The only negative I would say is the songs were too chill for my tastes as I’m not a reggae fan and after the show, my interest in reggae didn’t grow too much.
However if you’re a fan of reggae you will enjoy The Green live. They have a catchy jamming-out style and their energy really gets the crowd into it. Here’s my favorite song they played.
