Del Bergeson Orchestra Provides Music for Ballroom Dance Today
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 vocalist, Sandi Haynes, to make up this new exciting musical team. A fourth saxophone and guitarist have been added to provide a bigger sound.
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.
Continuing Mau's legacy, the orchestra continues to play everything from the traditional Big Band melodies to today's contemporary pop and dance hits.
The ballroom dances are filled with quality music and contagious energy.
"Music is the soundtrack of our lives," Bergeson said.
