Now based in Los Angeles, Wil found a home as the bass player with Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons from 2018 and 2019. He fills in on bass and vocals with the Stevie Nicks tribute band “Gypsy”. For 2020 Wil is teaming up to build a Fleetwood Mac tribute band and show.
When he’s not touring as a bass player, he continues to work as a solo artist in resorts in the LA and surrounding areas.
Wil has been a professional musician since he was 19. Originally from the Midwest, he cut his teeth playing bass guitar, singing, and touring in an East coast show and dance band. For six years he played bass and sang leads in resorts and showrooms on the east coast, midwest, southern states and Caribbean. In his late 20’s he developed his solo career and worked extensively as a Las Vegas entertainer. As a professional musician he’s always worn two hats – bass player and solo singer – playing public and private venues at world class resorts in the Caribbean, Ireland, Alaska, Hawaii, Colorado, and California.
As a bass player, Wil has also worked in 2 original’s singer/songwriter bands in Ireland, and an original Irish rock band, and in the San Francisco bay area with Miles Schon (son of Journey’s Neil Schon), as well as many cover bands. In Ireland, he fell in love with the originals scene and reconnected with songwriting. In the SF bay area he found a home playing bass in the R&B scene and working private events and clubs up and down the Monterey coast.
