Calling all Jazz Musicians! 

We’re the University of Leicester Big Band! Winner of Student Group of the Year 2018/19

Do you sing or play trumpet, trombone, saxophone, guitar, bass, piano or percussion?

If so, come to one of our rehearsals on Monday evenings in the Charles Wilson building and see if our energetic sound is for you.

We meet every week to rehearse a huge variety of Big Band classics from Stevie Wonder to Frank Sinatra and Gordon Goodwin to Sammy Nestico.

We have gigs all year round, featuring various academic balls, local music venues, and we’re the regular band for the prestigious Union Sports Awards.

We encourage everyone to try out both written and improvised solos and really get involved in the bands spirit and volume!

If you'd like to get in touch, you're welcome to contact us through any of our social media pages, linked at the top, or through our email, You can also sign up to our mailing list to watch out for any updates.
