Biography

The chicken pot pie is one of the greatest inventions of all time. Whoever created this delectable meal was most certainly part-genius. By simply taking chicken, vegetables, and gravy (each delicious on their own) and stuffing them into a flaky pie-crust (also delicious on its own), this person changed the culinary world forever.

The Greenbeets are the chicken pot pie of the music world. Hailing from Washington, DC, this band is filled with four of the most cultivated musical talents in the area. After years of performing and never once forgetting the roots of their influences, nor the passion to influence others, each member has earned the right to stand alone, owning to the fullest his respective skill.

Born in St. Lucia, Miguel 'Andros' Aubertin brings with him the genuine homeland roots of reggae and soca, inspiring the souls of listeners with his vocals. Pete Thomas on lead guitar is a musical encyclopedia; combining history lessons of blues, rock, jazz and funk, he has created a fusion sound that even the blind can recognize as his. Matt Hilferty turns the bass guitar into more than an instrument; with influences ranging from hip-hop and r&b to mo-town and blues, he is most certainly the all-important chicken in the pie. Lastly, keeping it all together is Ryan Cullen on percussion. His experience is so deep that he could play drums on any project no matter what the genre, the same way gravy has been blessed to go with anything.

When you take such talents, each a perfect ingredient, and put them together as a collective group, it is impossible for the musical recipe to be anything less than great.
