311 was formed in 1990 in Omaha, Nebraska, by singer/guitarist Nick Hexum, singer S.A. Martinez, guitarist Tim Mahoney, drummer Chad Sexton and bassist P-Nut. The band now resides in Los Angeles, California.
311 mix rock, reggae, hip-hop and funk into their own unique sound. After years of consistent touring, 311 has developed a reputation as one of the most influential and most entertaining live bands in the U.S.
311 has released eleven studio albums, one live album, one greatest hits album and three dvd’s – and have sold over 9 million albums in the U.S. Nine of their albums have reached the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 Sales Chart, and nine of their singles have reached the Top 10 on Billboard’s Alternative Rock Radio Chart (including the #1 singles “Down,” “Love Song,” and “Don’t Tread On Me;” along with “Amber,” “All Mixed Up,” “Come Original,” “Creatures For Awhile,” “Hey You” and “Sunset in July”).
311 recorded their 11th studio album, STEREOLITHIC, for a March 11, 2014 release, which debuted at #6 on the Top 200 Album Chart.
The band’s celebratory live shows & incessant touring schedule have earned them a massive grassroots following nationwide. Since its inception in 2004, 311’s annual summer headlining amphitheatre run, Unity Tour, has become one of the largest modern rock concerts of the summer. Support acts on previous Unity Tours have included Sublime with Rome, Cypress Hill, The Offspring, Slightly Stoopid, Snoop Dogg, The Roots, Papa Roach, The Wailers, O.A.R., Matisyahu, and Ziggy Marley.

THE GREEN formed on O‘ahu, Hawai‘i, in 2009. The group began as a vehicle for six different members of Hawai‘i’s tight-knit music scene to record a few songs and have a bit of fun along the way. Their self-titled debut album, released in 2010, earned both critical and commercial acclaim, and was awarded iTunes Best Reggae Album of the Year.
