2023 is where to be!
Hello DZO Faithful!!
2022 was a really good year for us to get back out there and see all of you. With new performances at places like the Music Box Supper Club and the Kirtland Gazebo, the DZO continues to expand it's reach in Northeast Ohio. We're starting out the new year with a combined concert at Beachwood High School as part of a fund raiser for the kids to defer their costs to go on their band trip. We have a public and private performances already filling the calendar. I think 2023 is going to be the best year since I have taken over!
We'll see you out there and as always, keep swingin!

The Dan Zola Orchestra

Cleveland's Premier Dance Band
Filling Dance Floors Since 1961
For decades, the Dan Zola Orchestra has provided music for all types of society occasions. From dance halls to debut balls and weddings to concert venues throughout the midwest, the DZO delivers the authentic sound of the most popular big bands in the swing era.
When it comes to dance music, the DZO is king. We bring the music that makes you want to dance! Bandleader Eric Dregne has worked with dance instructors from some of NE Ohio's best studios to ensure the arrangements and tempos are perfect for both ballroom and swing.
Every big band has its own distinctive sound, and the DZO brings them all to life with an authenticity that shows why they have been a fan favorite of thousands of listeners for over 50 years.
"The Dan Zola Orchestra was the MC and entertainment at my wedding at the Ballroom at Park Lane in 2016. My wife, Marie, LOVES jazz, particularly from the swing era. It was important that that was reflected in our wedding reception entertainment. After much research and interviews, we chose the Dan Zola Orchestra for our wedding. It was a great choice. We will never forgot their rendition of “Sing, Sing, Sing with a Swing” as our guests entered the ballroom ( I still get goosebumps just thinking about it). We were very happy and have tried to get out and see the orchestra any chance that we get. My absolute favorite wedding pictures by the incomparable Jerry Ghionis has Dan and other bandmates." - Larry Spencer, Spencer Photography Inc.
