Kayla Kenzior (Anna-Frid)
Kayla Kenzior has always dreamed of performing on stage. Little did she know that her dreams would become reality when she auditioned for Idol in the Skye, a singing competition, when she was just 13 years old. Now, at 24 years old, she performs in five TAD Management productions such as AbbaFab, Those British Girls, Rock Me Gently, Diamond Rocks, and Adventures in Parrotdise.
Chris Whiteley (Benny/Piano/Sax)
With nearly thirty years of performance experience, Chris touts himself as a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and arranger. He began playing saxophone in grade school and picked up flute and clarinet in high school. Between college and his professional career, he’s added piano, guitar, percussion, bassoon, folk whistles, and some brass. Throughout his years as a cruise ship musician and touring member of both tribute and original acts, Chris has had the pleasure of backing up renowned artists such as Judy Carmichael, Dale Kristien, Fabio Zini, Kenny Cetera, and Melissa Manchester.
Scotty Pearson (Bjorn/Guitar)
Scotty loves to say he was “Bjorn” to be in AbbaFab as the guitarist and one of the two front men. “Any opportunity to put smiles on people’s faces is what makes my job as a performer so fulfilling.” Scotty grew up in Portland, Oregon, and as a teenager began learning, playing, and performing music as soon and as often as he could. Now living in Phoenix, Arizona, Scotty has a wife and two boys that mean the world to him. If he is not on the stage trying to entertain an audience, he is probably with his family trying to achieve the same thing.
