Dave Matthews, Tim Reynolds and Mason Jennings Confirmed for Jack Johnson’s Kokua Festival
Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds will play their first show in Hawaii as part of Jack Johnson’s fifth annual Kokua Festival. The multi-band event will take place from April 19-20 at Honolulu’s Waikiki Shell, also featuring appearances by local island favorites Paula Fuga and Go Jimmy Go, and the latest addition to the Brushfire Records family, Hawaii-born, Minneapolis-based Mason Jennings. All proceeds from last year’s festivities will benefit the Kokua Hawaii Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Jack and Kim Johnson to support environmental education programs in the schools and communities of Hawaii. The funds raised from the Kokua Festival will be used to further support school recycling on Oahu, sponsor field trips, and roll out the new farm-to-school program ‘AINA In Schools.
Jack Johnson will release his next studio album, Sleep Through The Static, tomorrow. The album marks the first time Johnson’s college friend, and longtime sideman, Zach Gill (ALO) is credited as a fulltime band member. Johnson will headline Coachella this April and is rumored to appear at the first annual All Points West Festival in August.
