Olivia Van Goor is a Detroit-based jazz vocalist, band leader, arranger, and composer. She has built a reputation for not only being an excellent vocalist, but a creative force to be reckoned with. Her hard work has yielded two EPs, first “When the Shadows Fall” in 2021 and the second being “Don’t Be Mad At Me” in August of 2023. These recordings have taken her to tour in surrounding major cities such as Ann Arbor, Toledo, Cleveland, Columbus, Southbend, Chicago, and Pittsburgh. Additionally, she received nominations for Best Vocal Jazz Album of 2021 by the Detroit Music Awards, Outstanding Vocalist in 2023, and recognition by many Michigan-based publications. Beyond recording, she has produced the show “Duets” with vocalist/bassist Reuben Stump exploring the history of vocal jazz duets and some of her own arrangements as well as an “Anita O’Day Tribute” in which she pays tribute to the legendary vocalist Anita O’Day. She has worked with musicians like Detroit pianist Scott Gwinnell, 2-time JUNO award winning vocalist Caity Gyorgy, prolific Ann Arbor bassist Paul Keller, Lansing guitar great Randy Napoleon, and many others. Olivia continues to collaborate with many Michigan leaders in jazz in addition to surrounding midwest musicians to spread musical joy.
Olivia moved to Southeast Michigan in the winter of 2017 with her family, and fell in love with the Detroit music scene. She has performed at historic Detroit clubs such as Cliff Bell’s and Aretha’s Jazz Cafe at Music Hall, along with the Blue Llama Jazz Club in Ann Arbor. Rich with history and phenomenal world-class musicians, she has found a home where she continues to progress her craft.
Raised in Hudson, OH, Olivia learned how to play piano, sing in choirs, and eventually how to perform as a soloist. The love for music grew as she explored different avenues: choir, rock bands, and musical theatre. However, one outlet stood out against them all: jazz. In 2019, Olivia graduated from Denison University in Granville, OH with a bachelor’s degree in music & economics. She used that time to explore voice as her main instrument, learning from Dr. Stephanie Henkle and Dr. Carolyn Redman. She sang in the jazz ensembles under the instruction of saxophonist Pete Mills, and interned at Jazz Arts Group Columbus.
For almost 60 years, Dan Zola led and fronted the longest, continuously performing big band anywhere. Steeped in the traditions of Harry James, Ray Anthony, Billy Butterfield and more, Dan's Trumpet was the voice of the big band era and many of the musical styles since that golden age.
At the end of 2019, Dan stepped back from the band after a stellar and storybook run with his group. He still comes to listen and support the band, but no longer has to pack up and be the last guy to leave at the end of the gig!
Listening to big band music and running bands since age 16, Eric Dregne was the natural fit to continue the legacy of this outstanding orchestra. With the full confidence of Dan Zola, Eric took over as Leader and Musical Director at the beginning of 2020.
Through the Pandemic of 2020, he put together virtual recording projects with the group (posted on YouTube) to keep the band playing. Each year, the band has continued to grow and develop while keeping the DZO musical approach and legacy alive and well.Back to Calendar
