The band provides an opportunity for musicians from Sussex Universities (including University of Sussex, University of Brighton, BSMS and BIMM) interested in Jazz to be part of a Big Band. A huge range of opportunities are available within the band as all players must re-audition every year.
We have a wide and varied library of music, ranging from Jazz Standards (Take the A-Train, Moonlight Serenade) to Funk (The Chicken, New Rochelle) and Jazz arrangements of Pop and Rock tunes (Forget You, Take on me, Crazy in love, Lady marmalade) to male and female Vocal numbers (Straighten Up and Fly Right, Cant buy me love, Is This Any Way to Fall in Love) . The band’s repertoire is constantly being updated with all new additions being suggested by members of the band before being purchased. Listen to our live recordings of our Montreux Jazz Festival 2015 set for a quick taster.
Please fill in the form on the right for an Audition, you will be contacted in September with a time.
The Audition is informal comprising of a prepared piece, sight reading and improvisation.
Any questions please don’t hesitate to email us.
