I am a singer with a jazz group called Swing Set! I specialize in jazz although I am an especially eclectic singer who can easily swing from an opera aria to a pop tune. if you're looking for an intimate trio for your club or function or a quintet with brass to swing the night away for your party or wedding reception, Swing Set is your band! I also do a lot of solo gigs too as I play piano and sing. I play at local wine bars, restaurants, and have done many holiday engagements, small gatherings, weddings, church services, etc.
Thank you, Kendra
Kendra and the Swing Set were an amazing group of talented musicians. Their renditions of classic standards and upbeat swing songs made for a memorable night of dancing and laughter. If you are looking for a stellar ballroom style band that can play everything from Waltz to Cha Cha I highly recommend giving them a shot. I know I'll be using them again in the future! Thanks for making our first swing dance so much fun!
