Perhaps the next Hawai’i-based reggae outfit to breakthrough in the major markets has announced touring plans for 2017.
Reggae music might not be the most dominant genre of music in the United States, but throughout the state of Hawai’i, the underground sound has reached the forefront of popular culture. Two local acts that have been making the most noise as of late are Oahu’s own Rebel SoulJahz and Eli Mac.
It is difficult to go more than 60-minutes on any local reggae radio station throughout the island chain and not here one of the many singles from either Rebel SoulJahz and Eli Mac. With each passing year, that sentiment grows.
After both acts have been featured at Hawaii’s biggest music festival, The MayJah RayJah, the duo will team up for a tour through America’s continental 48-states this year.
The two Hawaiian reggae acts will attempt to conquer the western states of America on their “4 The People Tour”.
The tour will officially commence on March 23rd in Fresno, California. However, Rebel SoulJahz will be performing in New Zealand to kickoff their 2017 concert calendar.
Rebel SoulJahz and Eli Mac will be touring throughout California for a total of 12-dates, including stops in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Cruz and Santa Ana, among other cities, as well as tour stops in Oregon, Washington, and Nevada.
Coinciding with the new tour dates, Rebel SoulJahz will be touring in support of their upcoming nine-song LP release under the same name, 4 The People. The album, which features the radio hit single, “Why Can’t You Love Me” (Featuring Spawnbreezie), is set to be released on February 24, 2017.
