Jack Johnson and Friends: Best Of Kokua Festival
Airs Friday, May 4 at 9 p.m. Since 2004, Jack Johnson has hosted annual concerts in Hawaii featuring his musician friends to raise money for the Kokua Foundation he and his wife created to support environmental education programs. This one hour radio special features the best, one-of-a-kind collaborations from past festivals. Dave Matthews, Eddie Vedder, G Love and Ozomatli join Jack on his hits and covers.
Jack also sits in on unique versions of songs made famous by his guests Ben Harper, Taj Mahal, Jackson Browne, Willie Nelson, Ziggy Marley and Damian Marley. Jack Johnson, G. Love, Wil-Dog (Ozomatli), Taj Mahal, and Zach Gill (A.L.O, Jack’s Band) discuss these performances and the environmental mission of the festival. The program includes one exclusive non-album track – “Home” recorded live at Blue Planet Studio in Honolulu.
