Musical styles

WPO is a band for all occasions. In addition to our own brand of jazz-and-cheesesteak-infused Balkan brass, WPO also boasts a klezmer outfit (WP Klez O) which brings the house down at simchas. And with our diverse musical backgrounds, we can play jazz from traditional New Orleans’ style to straight-ahead to avant-funk-electro-you-name-it.

We’ve played it all, and in every kind of venue. We’ve played sweaty shows in dingy basements and swanky shows at formal events. The Philly marathon at the crack of dawn, parades in the dead of winter, banner events at the Mayor’s office, weddings and b’nai mitzvahs from fancy to funky, black-tie fundraisers, hole-in-the-wall bars, 2000-seat venues, treehouses, folk festivals, and outdoor parks. GoldenFest in NYC and Ollin Kahn in Mexico City. Once we woke someone up with a surprise house show on her birthday.
