    Iris Eve with Blue Star Octave and Patina Green, Friday June 29 at The Akebono Theater in Pahoa. 7-midnight, 21+ Come out and celebrate Iris ending and beginning another cycle around the sun!! It's a Chocolate potluck and the theme is YUM. Bring your yummy dessert, yummy friends and yummy vibes!! ♥ Iris Eve conveys her potent lyrics with an engaged presence, moving listeners through laughter, tears and dance, sometimes all in the same song. From songs about the shenanigans of the subconscious, to the awkward and evolving spirituality of humanity, her lyrical content isn't afraid to go there. With alot of energy, heart and spice, Iris has slowly but steadily built a grass-roots following on the Big Island and is emerging as potent voice for alternative indie music. Erik Avery provides the driving bass riffs, drawing on a vast array of genres, along with his well-known animated stage presence. Kristin Johnson brings in the drum kit, using her dynamic and high-energy drumming style to engage with Iris's original songs in an upbeat, authentic expression of 'i-do-what-i-want-rock' that comes up clean.... Iris Eve is currently #1 on the ReverbNation Charts for singer-songwriter on the Big Island. www.reverbnation.com/irisevemusic Born on the south east side of the Big Island Blue Star Octave have four core members with an extended musical family scattered throughout the district of Puna. A very eclectic band with each member bringing different backgrounds of many musical genres. From jazzy funk spacial free flowing jams to tightly focused sharp angle turns. Blue Star Octave practice bringing an open and inviting attitude into life, so the music reflects that openness allowing the spirit of improvisation to take over. Find Blue Star Octave on facebook. Very Danceable, eclectic, jazz funk with a slice of India. Patina: The outer layer accumulated over time of something grown beautiful by experience, practice, age, and use. The music of Patina Green has been unfolding naturally; layers of melody and emotion color their sound, blending together to create a musical portrait. www.patinagreenmusic.com show link here https://www.facebook.com/events/432862780067442/
