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. Each year we have our 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!

 

Jazz Club Time Machine
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/. Unfortunately, these will be restricted in Semester One due to Covid-19, but we’re looking forward to playing together as soon as we’re able to. 

 

Join us!

The orchestra consists of four trumpets, four trombones, fives saxes, a four-person rhythm section, with a number of amazing singers to compliment our big band.


Auditions take place early in Semester one, so sign up during Welcome Week to avoid disappointment! You can find us at the Societies Fair and on social media, or pop us an email at ed.uni.jazz.orchestra@gmail.com. While the audition process is overseen by the executive committee and musical director, we elect addition sub-committee roles at the start of the year so there's always plenty of ways to get involved.


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!
