David Béru joined the band
He had everything this band needed, ninja agility on his guitar, the technical skills, a very edgy point of view and the will to just rock out each and every time they go on stage. At that point, the chemistry was born.

Two Green Cats’s birth
Two Green Cats was a two piece band. William Larochelle played the guitar, sang and wrote the songs. Maxime Lussier helped co-write these songs and played drums. The name of the band actually comes from that two piece part, green is the symbol they chose to represent their Irish influences towards drinking beer and having fun with their friends while playing music. They’ve also alway’s liked to think of themselves as cats, a bunch of independent rascals in other words.
