Welcome to the Three O'Clock Jump website!  3OJ is an 18 piece big band specializing in danceable and watchable jazz and standard charts from the Swing Era forward. Fronted by trumpeter Gus Wedemeyer, the band puts on a well-organized, energetic and custom show for each event including female and male vocals, mixture of tempos and dance styles and well-choreographed renditions of the tunes that make watching the Big Bands so much fun.  See a sample of a recent New Year's Eve outing:     

New Year's Eve on the USS Hornet Aircraft Carrier, Alameda  

New Year's Eve 2014 on the USS Hornet Museum was a blast for us and just 1,200 of our best friends! This was year 7 for our signature event and feedback agrees with band impression that this show was the best yet!  Lots of favorite moments, watch for the videos - our faithful crew is getting them ready for posting!
