Skatch Anderssen Orchestra @ BOP STOP
When: Feb 06, 2020, 8:00pm - 10:30pm
Where: BOP STOP
The Skatch Anderssen Orchestra returns to BOP STOP!
In the tradition of the great large Jazz ensembles of the last half of the 20th century, the Skatch Anderssen Orchestra began carving its own niche into the Northeast Ohio area musical landscape around 1990. Every Monday night, this powerhouse 17-piece big band performs music of Basie, Ellington, Buddy, Thad & Mel, Maynard, Kenton, Woody and many more at the historic Brother's Lounge on West 117th & Detroit in Cleveland, Ohio.
BANDLEADER: Eric Dregne
Bandleader Eric Dregne's intention is to enlist the finest musicians for the SAO to guarantee you will hear a high-powered, high quality performance of many of the tunes you know (and some you may not but are sure to enjoy).
Not content with playing only the standards of the big band golden era, the SAO features many compositions of local composers and arrangers, along with more recent popular artists such as Gordon Goodwin and Alan Baylock.
When the band is in full swing, it's easy to see why the SAO has gained a steady following in Cleveland and surrounding areas.
