Tickets to attend in person are $15 each or tune in to the BOP STOP's Facebook page at showtime to catch the livestream.

Carol brings a deep, sultry flair to wonderful torch songs from the Great American Song Book, as well as an eclectic array of songs from R & B, pop and contemporary. Great influences in her career are Ella, Sarah, Barbra, Cleo, Diana, Judy, Liza, Lena, Tony, Frank, Jobim, Cohen, not forgetting Amy Winehouse, The Beatles, Lady Gaga and Melody Gardot. She has created a dynamic ensemble for her appearance at the BOP STOP!
She is joined on piano by the maestro, Rock Wehrmann. A gifted musician and educator of the highest caliber, music historian, arranger, producer, soloist with the Cleveland Orchestra; Rock has recorded with Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, and Herbie Hancock. His repertoire seems endless, he is able to segue effortlessly from one style to the next and is definitely a singer’s lucky charm. Throughout the pandemic, he has performed numerous livestreams from his home, always with fellow musicians and singers, keeping the music alive during lockdown.
On upright bass is Jeffrey Slater, a Berklee graduate, educator, most often found performing with EEJ Firelands Jazz, and other Eric Everett Jazz Production ensembles, or studying the works of Bill Evans, about whom he is somewhat of an aficionado. Jeff’s playing is intelligent, articulate, warm, and multi-faceted – a terrific blend with vocals.
Carol is excited to finally work with Chris Coles! This has been a long-term goal. He has become a leading saxophone player in the area. He studied with world-renowned saxophonist and educator Dr. James C. Umble, jazz saxophonist Dr. Kent Englehardt, and jazz bassist and composer Dr. David Morgan. He received his master’s degree in Saxophone Performance from the University of Akron and is currently on faculty at Kent State University. Chris was a winner of the 2017 Knight Foundation Arts Challenge in Akron, Ohio, for his composition, “Nine Lives,” which was written in memory of the nine lives lost at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.
On drums and percussion is Dylan Moffitt, who holds an impressive curriculum vitae, including studying Brazilian rhythms and percussion! Moffitt performs regularly with City Music Cleveland, the Wheeling Symphony, Pittsburgh Opera, Cleveland Pops, Ohio Valley Symphony, Cleveland Chamber Collective, Apollos Fire, and has in the past performed with The Cleveland Orchestra and Blossom festival band and orchestra. Dylan is a world music specialist in a variety of styles and is an avid performer and educator both locally and abroad. Following trips to Brazil, he formed Samba Joia, a Cleveland based samba school and performs regularly with native Brazilian artists Moises Borges and Luca Mundaca. Dylan joined the percussion faculty of Oberlin College and has served on the faculty of the Cleveland Institute. Dylan’s principal teachers include Paul Yancich, Richard Weiner and Jamey Haddad.Back to Calendar
