Mr. Green All Stars Bio:
Mr. Green All-Stars describes themselves as “misfits of the world who believe in freedom of expression—no matter what the cost.”
The super group is known for their unique, energetic hybrid of punk rock and reggae, with lyrics that address political and human rights issues, as well as their incredibly skilled musicianship.
Their powerful, high-speed music evokes the world of action sports, as well as a sense of anarchy and freedom, and their blend of shout-along melodies and driving hooks forces the crowd to join in on the performance.
Mr. Green All-Stars announced their first album, Seeing is Believing, in 2006. H.R. of The Bad Brains contributed vocals to four tracks, including the Rolling Stones’ cover “She’s A Rainbow,” and he will also lend his unique punk rock/ reggae vocal style as a guest performer on the 2009 tour. The tour’s second guest star, Jamaica’s number one engineer and Dub originator The Scientist, also co-engineered the All-Stars’ album, along with Dave Aaron, engineer for Snoop Dogg and Sublime.
Seeing is Believing also featured drummer extraordinaire Steve Perkins of Jane’s Addiction on two tracks, “No Ego Trippin’” and “Brain Freeze.” Other guest musicians on the album include Josh Cardinali on guitar, George Huges on keys, Balboa Celebrity Horns, Willy Waldman on trumpet, bassists Derek “Bull Dread”, Freddy Flynt, drummers Clinton Stoggsdill, and Ezra Robison. The album was produced by lead singer Hawaiian Lyon’s own label Upmost High Records, mixed at The Record Plant in Hollywood and Blunt Bros. Recording Studio, and mastered by Mike Hogue of Track Records and Irin Mawhirter of Disc Makers.
