Eclectic Mayhem is a musical trio offering up a mix of tunes
from oldies to today's pop, swing to smooth jazz, and covers to originals
Our story? Not exactly exciting. The three of us have played in various musical groups together over the years and decided one day it was time to start our own band. Typical scatterbrained musicians, all with different musical tastes, we couldn't land on one style.
So we play it all.
We are truly Eclectic Mayhem.
Meet the Band
While studying guitar at Grace Bible College, and then later at Grand Valley State University, Bill was immersed in the standard Classical and Jazz guitar literature. He taught guitar for many years at Muskegon Community College and at Calvin College in Grand Rapids. He has performed in ensembles covering material from the 16th century on period instruments, through modern Jazz and rock and roll. He moved to Evansville in 2017 with his wife and 4 daughters where he teaches guitar and performs with various ensembles.
Caroline has played piano since she was seven, drums since she was eleven, and began singing and playing guitar in her teens. Electric bass became her new passion at the ripe old age of 47. She has a degree in Music Education she doesn't use, because being a personal trainer and mystery author is way more fun than teaching punk kids.
At the age of 6, Dave King's earliest memories are those of using wooden spoons to play inverted pots and pans on a kitchen floor. By age 13, in exchange for cutting grass an entire season at home, his dad bought him his first set of drums. Dave's band career is eclectic, including groups playing early rock, rock, country, Celtic, Traditional Bavarian, big band, Dixieland, symphonic and Civil War era music. He and his wife lead a worship band and have performed internationally with the Global Mission Project in Russia, Lithuania, and Cuba.
