The Greenbeats  started off as The Caravelles but being an Irish (green!) beat-group, the idea to change their name to The Greenbeats was a good one, especially since they played in Liverpool's famous Cavern Club in 1964. They came to national prominence as the resident group on the RTE series, "The Showband Show" and released a few singles including "If This World Was Mine", "Little Egypt" and "So Sad". They later added a brass and reed section and became a  showband.
