Del Bergeson Orchestra performs at the Timbers of ShorewoodThe Del Bergeson Orchestra will perform at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15, in the ballroom at the Timbers of Shorewood retirement community, 1100 N. River Road.

The Del Bergeson Orchestra is one of Chicagoland’s newest Big Band entertainers. Formally known as the Jay Mau Orchestra, this 13-piece ensemble plays for weddings, corporate events, fundraisers, parties and a host of other festivals.

Six veteran musicians from the Mau orchestra have joined with seven new musicians and a vocalist to make up this new exciting musical team. A fourth saxophone and guitarist have been added to provide a bigger sound. Continuing Mau’s legacy, the orchestra continues to play everything from the traditional Big Band melodies to today’s contemporary pop and dance hits.

Members of the Del Bergeson Orchestra are 25+ year music professionals with a deep passion for music and entertaining. Several members are music instructors teaching at the university level.

Performances are filled with quality music, contagious energy and audience interaction.

“Music is the soundtrack of our lives,” Bergeson said. His own musical roots sink deeply in gospel and jazz
