About us

EUJO is the University's only fully auditioned Jazz and Funk society.

Consisting of three primary ensembles, The Big Band, The Anything Goes Funk Band and the Small band, EUJO plays a wide variety of professional gigs. In the past these have included both University related events - such as Society Balls, Conferences and Graduation ceremonies - and Private functions outside of University, such as Weddings, Drinks receptions, Public functions and local music festivals. We play a wide range of classic jazz standards, funk tunes, modern jazz and even some original charts composed by members past and present.

How to join

If you have any experience playing Jazz, Funk or Blues or just are interested in the music and fancy trying your hand at it, please come along to one of our taster sessions and sign-up for one of our auditions in September. Neither age or standard is a bar to auditioning, all you need is passion, dedication and a smile!
