Kendall has been playing professionally since the tender age of 13, when his high school Jazz quintet landed the Sunday brunch gig at the local B&B in Aptos California. Upon graduation, he auditioned for and got the gig for a 6 piece Dixieland Jazz band, that was going to Walt Disney World in Florida. This led to a long standing relationship with the Disney corporation, that saw him working with such Disney musical staples as the “Walt Disney World band”, and the “Kid’s of the Kingdom” band. After touring the states with Kenny Rodgers, and a few years in the cruise ship industry, he’s now made a home for himself in Japan, where he fronts his own band, and is a sideman on several other local bands.
