A bouncing bundle of happiness from Kaneohe, Hawaii, HIRIE appears for the second time at the Crystal Bay Casino at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4. It’s a free show in the Red Room.

Released on Aug. 19, HIRIE’s “Wandering Soul” debuted on the first week of September at No. 1 on Billboard’s Reggae Albums chart. It has remained in the Top 10 for five weeks.

HIRIE sings reggae with an island bent. She was born in the Philippines, raised in Italy and lived “the most influential” portion of her life in Hawaii. She was able to catch a fire nationally in 2013 with the hit song “Sensi Boy.” She debuted at Crystal Bay in May 2015.  She co-headlined with Collie Buddz last December at the Cargo Concert Hall in Reno.

HIRIE’s band includes Chris Hampton, saxophone, melodica and accordion; Andrew McKee, trombone, guitar, didgeridoo and percussion; Andy Flores, bass; Blaine Dillinger, lead guitar; and Joey Muraoka, drums.

After Tahoe, HIRIE will tour nine shows with Nahko and Medicine for the People in Canada, Washington, Oregon and Humboldt County, California. The band will tour three weeks with Rebelution Oct. 31-Nov. 19 in the South and Midwest.
