Rock 'n Roll 'n Game!

The Greens playing shows in arcades?

We're looking for some ideas on places to potentially play shows that also host arcade machines and pinball tables as a bit of a themed/promo tour:

*  Music venues that are also arcades
*  Bars that are also arcades that host shows
*  Arcades that host shows/special events
*  Festivals that feature music and games

This is just an idea we are working on. We have found a few music venues that specifically advertise themselves as music bar/arcade establishments, but in order to feasibly tour and play at these locations, we're going to need to fill in a lot of gaps.

Are you an arcade owner with the right facility to host a rock show? Barcade proprietor with a penchant for live original music? Agent for a gaming festival? We want to hear from you!

It will take a lot of planning to put together something like this, so we're taking thoughts early to see if this is something we can really do. It just so happens that one of the members of The Greens is a competitive video gamer who participates in multiple live and online tournaments each year in the venue of classic arcade and console gaming. Perhaps there will be some record-setting going on at these shows as well...

New Album to hit Tyler, TX on August 5th

After working for almost two years on the new album, it's finally ready to be released. Just now, like this week, we finished our work in the studio. What a better way to release it to a fresh audience than accept an offer to play a show in a state we've never played?

That's right. The Greens are going to Texas with CDs in tow to spread the rock 'n roll WV soul seed all across the central US!

The show is Friday, August 5th at Stanley's Famous Pit BBQ in Tyler, TX. That's pretty soon. We just finished the studio work and need to get the CDs pressed in time, and fund the road trip. Also we are looking for some show support along the way for August 4th and 6th. Timing, as they say, is everything. As this record is hot hot hot, so should our approach be to getting it to the masses!

Please check out our GoFundMe campaign to help us along with these efforts. This album is our best work ever and it's been a long time coming. We are thrilled to finally have it ready to release.

EDIT: We have met our GoFundMe campaign goal in only a week's time! Much love to the universe!

Rock on!

Highland Jam 2016

We are proud to continue the tradition of Highland Jam at the Pegasus Farm in Elkins, WV!

This is a reunion of West Virginia musicians and lovers of music that we've been privileged to participate in for many years now. We hold ZEN in high regard and Mark and Bonnie have treated us like family from day one.

The Greens are slated to play feature on August 12th Friday evening at 11:30pm with late night set from Threesound to follow. Come early and stay late to soak up every drop of WV soul...
