THE CLICK FIVE biography
The Click Five Biography
Power pop quintet the Click Five formed in Boston in mid-2003. Lead guitarist Joe Guese, bassist Ethan Mentzer, and keyboardist Ben Romans were students at the Berklee School of Music when they captured the attention of svengali manager Wayne Sharp, a longtime jazz promoter whose first attempt at creating a pinup-ready pop combo, Candy (featuring future Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke), ended in commercial disaster when the group's hotly tipped 1985 debut, Whatever Happened to Fun, flopped at retail. After signing Guese, Mentzer, and Romans, Sharp added another Berklee student, drummer Joey Zehr, who recommended childhood friend Eric Dill to fill the band's frontman slot. Upon receiving their Sharp-issued matching mod-influenced suits and salon-styled haircuts, the Click Five began honing their chops on the Boston nightclub circuit, and in the spring of 2004 cut their first two-song demo session. A four-song tape quickly followed, and within a month the group signed to Lava Records, soon after touring the U.S. in support of Ashlee Simpson and releasing an EP, Angel to You (Devil to Me). The Click Five's debut LP, Greetings from Imrie House, followed in the summer of 2005 amid a flurry of licensed lunchboxes, trading cards, and hair products. The album was also supported via tour dates in support of the Backstreet Boys. After replacing Dill with singer/guitarist (and fellow Berklee alum) Kyle Patrick, Modern Minds and Pastimes followed in 2007. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide

The Click Five is a band from Boston, Massachusetts. They succeeded on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart with the single, "Just The Girl" (written by Fountains of Wayne's Adam Schlesinger) from their debut album, Greetings from Imrie House, which was released on August 16, 2005. Their second album, Modern Minds and Pastimes, was released on June 26, 2007.Beginnings (2001-2004)
Joe Guese, Ben Romans, and Ethan Mentzer were in a band called "Oscar Bravo" at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, while Joey Zehr was the drummer in a peer band, "For Reasons Unseen." After the two college bands disbanded, Joe Guese, Ben Romans, Ethan Mentzer, and Joey Zehr formed The Click in 2004 while attending Berklee. The four musicians were searching for a lead singer for the newly-formed band, and Zehr called his childhood friend from Indianapolis, Indiana, Eric Dill, to audition, and subsequently offered him the role. He left his studies at Purdue University and moved into the band's house, which was dubbed, "Imrie House." The group played their first venue at the KISS 108 FM Hatchshell Concert on the Charles River in July 2004.
Debut Album and Tour (2004-2006)
The Click was signed to Lava Records in the fall of 2004, which was eventually combined with Atlantic Records. The group began recording songs for their debut album. They eventually changed their name to The Click Five because many other artists performed under the aforementioned name. In the Spring of 2005, The Click Five opened for Ashlee Simpson with Pepper's Ghost, and opened for The Backstreet Boys that summer. They filmed, and released a music video for their first single, "Just the Girl", in May and June, respectively. It stayed on MTV's Total Request Live countdown for more than forty days, peaking as the third most requested video. The debut album, Greetings from Imrie House, was released on August 16, 2005. The Click Five began an autumn 2005 tour with Ryan Cabrera and The Veronicas. Their second single, "Catch Your Wave", was released in November, accompanied with a music video. They began their first headlining tour in North America in the early months of 2006 followed by one in Singapore and Malaysia in April. They also played several venues in Japan in July 2006 and opened for McFly's arena tour across the United Kingdom and Ireland.
"Taking Five", New Direction, and New Album (2006-Present)
In the fall of 2006, the band began filming a movie in Salt Lake City, Utah, called "Taking Five". Consequently, Dill decided to leave the band to pursue a solo singing career as well as an acting career in Los Angeles, California. On March 9, 2007, the band posted an official announcement on its web site stating that Eric Dill had left the band. His replacement was later revealed to be singer/guitarist, Kyle Patrick, whom the band had found at Berklee College of Music. The band musically began on a new direction, and released their first single, "Jenny", in the spring of 2007, and later released their second album, "Modern Minds and Pastimes", on June 26, 2007.
