Vail Cabaret Nights is lead by Rayla Kundolf and music director, Taylor Kundolf. Rayla is from Santa Fe, where she was one of the founding troubadours at La Casa Sena – one of the places that served as the inspiration for Vail Cabaret Nights. Taylor is an accomplished entertainer and pianist who has performed for audiences all over the world.

"The cast of seasoned performers that we bring to you this winter for Vail Cabaret Nights are such a joy to work with," said Rayla Kundolf. "The level of talent, chemistry and pure fun is unmatched in any other Valley entertainment venue."

Summers Baker, is a new cast member as well as a senior at Vail Christian High School. Baker has been playing guitar for 7 years, however this is his first year performing vocally. He performed in his first musical at VCHS in the spring. During those auctions, Baker met Rayla Kundolf who introduced him to the Vail Cabaret Nights family. In his first summer with VCN, he hopes to grow as a performer and acquire new confidence on stage and in the workplace.

Seasoned cast member, Bailey Garton, is a recent Battle Mountain High School graduate.

Garton has performed with Vail Performing Arts Academy and several Battle Mountain High School productions. When asked what her two seasons with Vail Cabaret Nights has done for her aspiring career, Garton said, "It gives me a whole new type of performing, making my love for all of this much bigger!"
