“Merry Month of May” Ballroom Dance

The Del Bergeson Orchestra leads the monthly ballroom dance at the Timbers of Shorewood retirement community. The Del Bergeson Orchestra will provide music for “The Merry Month of May” Ballroom Dance at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, May 16, 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. Formerly 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 vocalist Sandi Haynes 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.

The Timbers’ ballroom dances are filled with quality music and contagious energy.

“Music is the soundtrack of our lives,” Bergeson said.

The Timbers of Shorewood is a rental retirement community which provides independent and assisted living apartments and a full schedule of activities and services. Residents, whose needs may change, are able to stay in the same place and receive appropriate care.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call Shelly Goggins at 815-609-0669.
