South London Jazz Orchestra

South London Jazz Orchestra

Sit back for an afternoon of classic big band jazz and swing from across the ages – from Glenn Miller to Duke Ellington, Count Basie to Neal Hefti, and contemporary arrangements of classics.

If there’s room, dancing in the aisles is strongly encouraged – or just relax and enjoy the thrill of live big band music in an intimate setting.

We work hard to keep our set list fresh and to reflect the often hidden diversity of swing and jazz composition and arranging. So listen out for the occasional diversion further afield, including Latin and Funk, and maybe even some more surprising choices… 

Founded in 2000, the South London Jazz Orchestra is a talented group of amateur musicians, passionate about community music, raising money for good causes, and bringing this music that we love to life  We’re a regular at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe Festivals and play over 30 gigs per year – from pubs to intimate clubs like Toulouse Lautrec, bandstands and weddings, and supporting runners at mile 11 of the London Marathon!   

SLJO is part of South London Community Music, along with South London Symphonic Winds and the London Sings choir.  We’re always on the lookout for new members, so get in touch with us if you like what you hear.
