It all started when Brendan Kavanaugh told a little white lie... ECLECTIC may be the only band in history to be booked for a gig before they existed. More than three years ago, lead singer Kavanaugh was asked if he had a band that could play at the Jeffersontown Gaslight Festival. He lied, said “yes,” and that was the beginning of this dynamic group.

With a gig weeks away, Kavanaugh decided he better make good on his promise. He called guitarist Justin “J.T. “ Smith, who he had played music with before. “I called Justin and I said, ‘we’ve got a gig,’ and Justin said, ‘what are you talking about? We don’t even have a band.’” Justin’s brother, Terry, played the drums, so he rented a set and in just a few weeks the three collaborated and learned 35 songs.

The Gaslight gig was days away and they were still without a bass player. “We were just going to go ahead and play without one, but at the last minute I remembered Jamie had a bass,” Kavanaugh said. Jamie Richardson was Kavanaugh’s high school friend and former college roommate. He drove in from the University of Kentucky the day before the Gaslight gig. “We wrote all the chords down on a piece of paper,” Richardson said. “I sat on a chair with that paper on the floor and played.”

The four had an immediate chemistry. As time progressed, so did their talent. They developed their own sound, began playing original music, and found themselves playing to packed rooms at Louisville’s premier music venues. Today, crowds in Louisville, Chicago and elsewhere are singing along to ECLECTIC originals.

On November 15, 2003, they released Tables Turned, their first CD as ECLECTIC, to a sold out crowd of more than 800 fans at Headliners Music Hall in Louisville, Kentucky. The first single from Tables Turned, “Breathe,” began being played inregular rotation at Louisville’s WLRS 105.1 radio. It was among the top five most requested songs of the day for more than 14 weeks. “Breathe” can also be found on the A&R Worldwide compilation CD of independent artists entitled, Unearthed Vol. 1. www.eclecticville.com
