Will Kencel


Will Kencel is a professional bassist and bandleader from Brooklyn NY.  He has been called “one of the most motivated and hardest working bassists in Brooklyn with a positive energy that he brings both on and off the stage.”   He studied Jazz Bass with Rich Syracuse at Skidmore College and graduated with a Bachelor of Music and specialization in Physics.

Will has performed with different style groups throughout NYC, New England and Australia.  He believes that all types of music have something to offer and we live in a time where we can access very authentic recordings of different genres of music from around the world; that is an opportunity and a blessing.  Bringing new rhythms and playing techniques to the bandstand is a passion that shows in his approach to music and the ensembles he plays with.
