SUJO is Southampton University’s only auditioned big band! SUJO was set up within the University of Southampton and has since gone from strength to strength having played at a number of prestigious venues in recent years ranging from the Concorde Club to the North Sea Jazz Festival and even the Montreux Jazz Festival! We also play regular concerts around the University with a good following of attendees.

The band’s wide repertoire ranges from classics such as the Count Basie Orchestra’s Corner Pocket to more modern compositions like Bob Curnow’s Cayenne.

Our standard band is a full 17 part jazz orchestra plus vocalists which is ideal for anything from a concert hall to an outdoors event or a society ball. If required however, we can also find a smaller ensemble for more intimate venues and background music.
