Extremely impressed and happy with Eclecticus who played at my club the Linsmore Tavern last week! This is an extremely talented band who has incredible original music and delivers a great live show. Not only are they a band that appeases the audience, but they are also a club owner's and booke'rs dream as they are extremely professional in all aspects from the communication, promotion, to their live show. The Linsmore Tavern was packed on a Thursday night and everyone in attendance went home entertained and happy. I can't wait to book them again for another show!
Price Range: Negotiable
Gig Length: 45 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
ECLECTICUS will provide an exciting and engaging show no matter what the event or venue. They deliver performances that are fluid, entertaining, full of energy, generating chemistry with the crowd as soon as they hit the stage.
The band is incredibly professional. They are always punctual for engagements, ready to load-in and set-up as per requirements of promoter/event organizer. In fact, they have never missed or been late for a gig. Whether performing as a solo, headlining or supporting act, the band works well with others involved in the event (i.e., event/venue staff, security, sound tech/engineer, promoter, and other bands).
ECLECTICUS has experience performing on both large and medium-sized venues such as CNE Bandshell (charity event), Canada's Wonderland (Guinness World Records), Horseshoe Tavern (several shows), Linsmore Tavern, The Rivoli, Cage 292, Mod Club, Opera House, and more. Gar and Tiina have also performed acoustically at The Bluebird Cafe and The Commodore in Nashville, Tennessee.
The band's music can be defined as rock, pop rock, Americana, and/or roots rock. Each song is different from the next in terms of tempo, melodies, and story-line, providing a nice variety that will appeal to most musical tastes. Demographic of audience is typically 21+ years of age, attracting both sexes equally. The songs are contemporary and authentic, full of ear-worms, melody, memorable guitar riffs, and driving rhythms. A truly original act that breeds a sophisticated and contemporary sound that will please most show-goers.
ECLECTICUS is a good choice for a variety of events and venues such as festivals, charity events, music venues, and private concerts. They offer fun merchandise (e.g., t-shirts, buttons, etc.)and music (CDs, download cards) as appropriate. They have a recognizable "e" band logo which is an original design that was professionally illustrated for the band; the idea was born from the band name and actually spells out ECLECTICUS. The logo can be found on merchandise, posters, images, website and social media banners/profiles and more.
When you hire ECLECTICUS, the band is committed to giving more than what is expected because they simply love to perform and entertain!

The band just released a new album in June 2018 - So Illogical, produced by Canada’s award winning and nominated music producer and composer, Jono Grant, at his studio Victory Drive Music.
Via CD Baby - June 1, 2018:
Where New York meets LA, So Illogical is a stand out rock album, drawing from the classic rock sound in a modern way. An evolution from their earlier music, ECLECTICUS delivers their best work to-date in this eight-song production.
