Hollie Cavanagh (Agnetha)
Hollie Cavanagh catapulted into the spotlight on the eleventh season of “American Idol.” Hollie was a frontrunner in the live shows, impressing the judges with her powerful diva-like voice. She advanced to the final four earning praise from industry legends such as Stevie Nicks and Mary J. Blige for her larger than life vocals. After the show, Hollie delighted crowds in sold out arenas across the country in the American Idol Tour. Since her start on “American Idol,” Hollie has released singles, sung the title track for an award-winning short film and racked up millions of views on YouTube. Hollie is back to what she does best, performing live for audiences across the world.
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 30 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.
