Entertainment that matters

SWAG is a Raleigh, North Carolina based band. We have a large repertoire of both original songs and well-loved covers. Our music is a unique blend of rock, blues, pop and captivating originals. SWAG was formed in 2003 by Kurt Foerst and Scott Covington, guitarists and singer/songwriters extraordinaire. Through the years they have composed an impressive array of catchy songs with thought-provoking lyrics. In 2011 bassist and guitarist Ray Parker and his talented wife Diane Beth (lead vocals and percussion) joined the mix. In 2018 we welcomed rhythm, bass and lead guitarist Jim Kayarian.  In 2022, we welcomed drummer Lane Kennedy.

SWAG is an eclectic group of skilled, fun-loving musicians who know how to entertain a crowd. Our music is sometimes hard-hitting and grabs the audience with the lyrics and the message it delivers. SWAG's music will get the audience on their feet with a unique sound of the past, the present and and an eye towards the future. With decades of combined experience in music and entertainment we can cater to the needs and interests of audiences across the country.
