Swing Set is my jazz trio to quintet! I sing, Robert York is the main pianist and we have a variety of people who play with us regularly (Tom Zink, piano, Lou Savage and Andy Zacharias on bass, Dave Johnstone, Chris Lemp, and Jacob Wendt on drums, and Rob Covacevich, Hugh von Kleist, and many others on sax).   We play mostly straight ahead standards and swing, with some blues, Latin, theatre, etc. thrown in! 
You can find us at the Sky Room once a month as well as other venues on occasion. Check the calendar!

Additionally, I play and sing a wide variety of repertoire on my own! I have a huge song list of everything from classical and musical theatre to R&B, pop and jazz and am available to sing and play for your event or small venue. :) I've played the Red Barrel, Willmore, and Utopia in Long Beach. 
I currently play monthly at Brix at the Shore in Long Beach as well as other venues on occasion,

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! ”

I can not speak highly enough about Swing Set. We knew we wanted a band for the wedding and found them on gigmaster. They invited us to one of their shows at the Sky Room which ended being up a great excuse for a date. They were awesome, I even added the drummer to our original quote because the sound was too good. As far as communication, Kendra the lead singer was better than my wedding planner. She had everything worked out and even gave me a chance to hand pick our set list. Everyone loved them. We are just working on finding an excuse to hire them again.”

Testimonials

"As a friend and colleague, I can personally attest that Kendra is equally talented in creating a polished musical event in just about any style of music!"
-Jonas Sills, tenor 


She can be soft, sultry, sensual, and sweet, and your senses are assaulted by a tsunami of amazing sounds. Chillin' tonight at Brix at the Shore with singer extraordinaire, Kendra Vuk, two of my fave gals, Jullie and Jeannie, Kendra's oh-so-nice-to-look-at hubby, Z, and their family and friends. Summertime, and the livin' was definitely easy tonight. We are truly blessed to be able to once again enjoy Kendra's awesome repertoire of music. Anyone who is a music fan should not miss her next performance. You will not be disappointed! She brought back so many feelings and memories for us. Truly grateful!
