The Audience Speaks . . .


The Del Bergeson Orchestra is a favorite at Bicentennial Park’s “Concerts On The Hill,” and we’ve seen many acts over our 40+ years. Nothing like their swinging sounds and Sandi’s sweet crooning to get folks up and dancing on a summer night. They are one classy act and enjoyed by our audience of all ages. Our concerts are free, but their music is priceless!

We are elated to have the Del Bergeson Orchestra perform at our Concert in the Park this last summer.  Their musical team was very professional and easy to work with.  They gave a great performance with an incredible musical line-up that was appealing to a variety of different ages.

We are overjoyed to have the Del Bergeson Orchestra perform at the Brookdale Senior Living Center.  Del has a great sense of humor and the band brings a lot of energy to our community.  Our residents love to dance to everything from “Call Me Irresponsible” to “In The Mood”.  All their music brings great memories for many of our residents and guests, and we all enjoy the personal interaction received from the band.

The Del Bergeson Orchestra played at one of our Senior Fairs this year.  The wonderful entertainment they provided left our guests dancing, clapping, singing along or just kicking back and enjoying the tunes from the Big Band ear.  It was a delight to see the enjoyment on so many faces and we look forward to having Del and his group back for future events!

Del has assembled an outstanding group of musicians from Chicago’s South and West Side.  Every player has their own incredible musical history and resume; many even have multiple CD projects of their own.  Kudos to you for putting together such an amazing gathering of players.  Truly an enjoyable, fresh up and coming musical team.

We at Bergstroms would like to personally thank each member of the Del Bergeson Orchestra for a wonderful evening of music and entertainment as we celebrated our 65th year in business.  I am especially grateful for their attention to detail and professionalism exhibited by the orchestra during every phase of our event.

Thank you for another fantastic and enjoyable year at our Kelli Joy Memorial Dinner Dance.  Your orchestra was incredible and your entertainment added to the success of our event!  The jazz standards your quartet played during dinner was an beautiful touch.  Your musical selections from the big band standards to today’s contemporary pop charts were enjoyed by all.  I especially enjoyed your arrangement of “Up Town Funk”.  We’re still hearing how much fun everyone had.  It was truly a memorable night!

The Del Bergeson Orchestra performed for a second year at our Spring Fling Star Ball held at the Harrah Casino in Joliet.  They provided our guest with an evening of fun and entertainment with excellence.  The variety of music played was enjoyable for all and it was exciting to see our guest out on the dance floor all night having an awesome time.  Looking forward to them coming back!
