The Water Gap Jazz Orchestra is the newest incarnation of the Poconos big band jazz legacy. It began as the Delaware Water Gap Civic Band in the 1970s, was then Grandmas Soup, the COTA Festival Orchestra and the Phil Woods Big Band.
A native to the Pocono area, Matt Vashlishan was “passed the torch” so to speak by Phil Woods before his passing in 2015. Since then, Matt has directed the group playing music from the Poconos big band history, as well as music from collaborations with many other composers. Renaming the group as the Water Gap Jazz Orchestra pays homage to not only the original founders Rick Chamberlain and Phil Woods but to all the Water Gap musicians who have been a part of the areas rich musical culture.
