Maximalist Rock from Washington DC

Official site of Bencoolen

Rock. Blues. Funk. Shred. Sax.

Bencoolen is no longer the band you know from their first EPs. The band has grown around a new lineup, toured, and rehearsed more than ever including booking major shows with Marcus King, Big Something, and at Firefly Music Festival. and Musikfest. "Spotlight" was the introduction to their new wave. "In the End" continues it in a recent release. The band just finished tracking for their first ever full length and are targeting a winter 2019 release. Ask anyone who has seen this lineup live. Bencoolen is tighter, raunchier, and more energetic with every passing show and logged 54 shows in 2017 alone, and are tracking to match the pace in 2018.

One No Depression writer described Bencoolen's live act as, “Everything I had hoped for. Their enthusiasm and energy filled the room as the crowd looked on, filling up the venue with a prominent and boisterous vibrancy.”
