Growing up in different cities throughout Florida, Southern California, and as far away as Rio de Janeiro, “Wait For Green” is known today for its progressive fusion of reggae, funk, alt-rock, jazz, and hip-hop that remains true to its roots. The unique cultural backgrounds and variety of musical influences from band members Drew Dockerill, Rafael Britto, AJ Larson, and Danny Moreldege shape the core of “Wait For Green's” refreshing style. Thanks to connections between mutual friends, word of mouth, and sheer luck “Wait For Green” was formed in the Fall of 2006 at Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL.
“Wait For Green” enjoyed massive success in Florida touring and having the pleasure to share the stage with the likes of: The Wailers, Slightly Stoopid, Reel Big Fish, Cold War Kids, Blues Traveler, Authority Zero, The Expendables, Rebelution, The Supervillians, and Passafire. After winning the National MEISA (Music and Entertainment Industry Stu-dent Association) Battle of the Bands, finishing in the top 8 to open Langerado, radio rotation on Florida's major rock and college stations (such as Clear Channel's X101.5, 103.1 The Buzz, and Florida College Radio), headlining shows at some of the Southeast's premier venues, performing at SUNFEST 2009 and showcasing at the Florida Music Festival; “Wait For Green” decided it was time to take the leap cross country to California and finally landed in Venice, CA in the spring of 2010.
Determined to continue their success, “Wait For Green” has already lit the stage on fire in some of LA's hottest venues including: House of Blues, Saint Rocke, Troubadour, Whiskey A Go Go, El Rey, The Viper Room, and more. Day by day asserting their place in the Southern California music scene and on the verge of a new EP releasing later this year, look for “Wait For Green” to be invading the radio and homes of music lovers everywhere.
