This year on the mainland, two major rock tours are featuring unusual crossovers, and one includes local talent, too. HPR’s Dave Lawrence speaks with O`ahu rising reggae stars The Green, and funk/dance pros Kool and The Gang, in this story of musical cross-pollination.
Get more information on the Van Halen tour with Kool and the Gang at their website, van-halen.com and at Kool and the Gang's site, koolandthegang.com. The Green can be found online at thegreen808.com. Below you can hear the complete interviews with Kool and the Gang and The Green, plus see videos of both acts.
