A welcoming non-auditioned big band which plays a variety of Jazz, Funk, Swing and Blues music.

A welcoming non-auditioned big band that gets together on Wednesday Night to play a variety of Jazz, Funk, Swing and Blues music. We usually have 30-40 members each year, and quite a new band that is improving year by year whilst having fun playing music together. We have regular socials such as pub crawls, balls, and even cheese and wine nights. The biggest event on the social calendar is our annual tour during Easter Holiday, with the Southampton University Concert Band, to an exotic European destination, where we perform and explore new places. Find us during freshers week and we are more than happy to have you join us! Find out more on our website: jazzband.susu.org, or alternatively email us at sujazzband@soton.ac.uk or find us on Facebook and Twitter.
