Bencoolen’s sound is maximalist rock built on soaring vocal lines, massive guitars, and swift saxophone solos. They are known for their live act and have been booked in 23 cities across the East Coast to date through festivals, music halls, bars, clubs, and even backyards.
The band was founded by guitarists and songwriters, Teddy Scott and Paul Gregg when they met in engineering school. Together, they’ve led different iterations of the band through recording projects, road trips, huge crowds, and tiny ones until finally landing on this core. This group has won awards, rave reviews, camped out, slept on floors, and won softball championships together. There’s an indescribable, positive energy that radiates from the stage when they perform that moves strangers to dance, to smile, to cheer, and to fall silent in lock step with Bencoolen.
