BOP STOP at The Music Settlement is Cleveland's premier listening room: an intimate, acoustically pristine performance venue with sweeping views of Lake Erie.
Andrew Wegierski & the Danjo Jazz Orchestra return to The BOP STOP for an evening full of your favorite Christmas tunes - big band style! Tickets to attend this performance in person are $15 each. Don't miss your chance to experience the music of Vince Guaraldi, Harry Connick Jr., Tom Kubis, and more. As a special treat, we'll also feature arrangements written by Northeast Ohio's own, including Paul Ferguson, Chas Baker, Rich Shanklin, and Andrew.
With a unique blend of big band classics and dazzling original arrangements, the 17-piece Danjo Jazz Orchestra has entertained audiences across Northeast Ohio for over 10 years. Originally founded by bassist Dan Angotti in May of 2010, the band is now directed by Cleveland native trombonist, composer, and arranger Andrew Wegierski. Under Andrew’s leadership, the Danjo Jazz Orchestra has held a monthly residency at Jilly’s Music Room, one of the top live music venues in Akron, since August 2019*. The band also frequently performs in downtown Kent, OH, and this year has added The BOP STOP, Blu Jazz+, and Westside Bowl (Youngstown) to their busy performance schedule!
To date, the Danjo Jazz Orchestra has released one EP entitled Danjo. The recording showcases the band’s versatility of big band styles, including selections from the Buddy Rich Big Band, Maynard Ferguson, and Count Basie Orchestra. The unique compositional voice of bandleader Andrew Wegierski is also featured in the laid-back latin chart, “Spoon Bag.” Danjo is available for purchase at all shows for only $5!
Today, the band continues to forge onward as a distinct musical voice in the jazz scene. With an ever-expanding musical library, the Danjo Jazz Orchestra’s mission is to push the boundaries of the modern big band, while also maintaining the legacy of the greatest bands that truly established the big band tradition.Back to Calendar
