Michael Mavroudis started playing music by the time he reached 6 years of age and was a founding member of the Greek Compania. On the piano, sits Michael Garibaldi, rockin' the keys since he was 9 and has spent time directing Greek folk dances in San Francisco.

At the helm of lead vocals, Tasso Mavroudis is also an accomplished musician, with a specialty in percussion. Following in the footsteps of her family members, Irene Mavroudis joined the band in 2012 and is the newest member to pay tribute to her Greek heritage.
