HONOLULU -

The Hawaii band The Green will open for Bruno Mars in his three sold out shows at the Neal Blaisdell Arena in April.

Mars will kick off the second leg of his "Moonshine Jungle World Tour."

The Green, whose popularity has soared since they first came together in 2009, freshly blends elements of Hawaiian style with dub roots reggae for a unique sound that strikes a chord with Hawaii fans.

Their extensive touring has introduced their distinctive style to legions of music lovers throughout the country.  From their #1 iTunes & Billboard release, "Ways & Means," to their festival appearances at Vans Warped Tour, Wakarusa and the California Roots Festival, The Green continues to spread aloha through their music.

Named Billboard Magazine’s "2013 Artist of the Year," Mars took home the statue for "Best Pop Vocal Album" at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.

With 130 million singles sold worldwide, the 18-time Grammy Award nominee and winner has made music history more than once, including such milestones as scoring his first five Billboard "Hot 100" chart-toppers faster than any male solo artist since Elvis Presley. In addition to his two acclaimed multi-platinum albums – 2010’s "Doo-wops & Hooligans" and 2012's "Unorthodox Jukebox," which share a combined certification total of 60x platinum worldwide – Mars has logged an extraordinary catalogue spanning 22 "Hot 100" hits. A charismatic and irresistible live performer, he recently concluded the epic 2013 leg of his "Moonshine Jungle World Tour" with sold-out shows in over 90 cities around the globe.
