The Edinburgh University Jazz Orchestra (a.k.a. EUJO)!

The University's official Big Band, and one of the finest in Edinburgh.

We are a 17-piece big band consisting of some of the finest jazz musicians studying at the University of Edinburgh. We perform throughout the academic year, at venues such as The Jazz Bar on Chambers Street, The Balmoral, The Pleasance Cabaret Bar, and Potterrow for our annual sell-out flagship event: Jazz Club Time Machine! We take bookings for society, charity and private events - our gigs are always packed full of people, energy, and of course great music!

We rehearse every Wednesday 3:30-6:30pm at The Jazz Bar during term time. The bar is open to anyone to come and listen in to our rehearsals in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Check it out here - http://www.thejazzbar.co.uk/.

Join us!

The orchestra consists of four trumpets, four trombones, fives saxes, a rhythm section, and a number of singers.

Auditions take place early in Semester one. Sign up during Fresher's Week to avoid disappointment! You can find us at the Societies Fair, on social media, or pop us an email at ed.uni.jazz.orchestra@gmail.com.

Also look out for the one and only Jazz Club Time Machine. Every March, the band presents one of the biggest nights in the EUSA calendar, as a packed out Potterrow enjoys numbers from each decade since the '20s! Like us on Facebook to make sure you don't miss out on this sell-out event!
