William McGonegal
My name is Wil McGonegal and I am a recent transplant to PEI, having moved to the island in October of 2016. I'm a bass player with 40+ years experience in live performance and studio recording. I earned a Bass Performance Diploma from the Berklee School Of Music in Boston, through their on-line music education program.
Living and growing up in Kingston, Ontario I have performed and recorded with dozens of bands in a variety of styles including Rock, Folk, Country, Soul, Blues and R&B, with Rhythm & Blues being my favourite music in which to play bass.
Since moving to PEI, I've dusted off the acoustic guitar and started performing as a solo acoustic act. The set list is as eclectic as my music collection, including a number of 70's soft rock hits reworked for the acoustic guitar.
I love to sing both lead and back up vocals and have been known to play piano / keys in a band or two. But playing the bass remains my first musical love.
