A new year means a new band! Instrumental auditions for the 2020/21 big band will take place as soon as COVID regulations allow. If you would like to try out for the band, including for the Musical Director or two Vocal positions, fill in this form or find us at the Fresher's Fayre.


The 2017/18 album is out as a free download on Bandcamp if you want to check out our stuff.


The Band

We are the UOSBB, Surrey's award-winning premier jazz ensemble. We are a 22 piece big band comprising saxes, trombones, trumpets, rhythm and two vocalists. From Goodwin to Gershwin we play loads of jazz and swing charts at our amazing gigs throughout the year. The atmosphere is great and the music is loud so what's not to love? We'd love to see you around, whether it's in the audience or playing alongside the rest of us because we always have a good time.

We rehearse every week from 6:30pm to 8:30pm on Tuesdays.
