The Edinburgh University Jazz Orchestra (EUJO) is a fully auditioned big band comprising students from the University of Edinburgh. The band rehearses every Wednesday in The Jazz Bar, Chambers Street, between 16:00 - 19:00. Rehearsals are open for the public to come and sit, have a drink and find out what we're up to!
Changing directors on a yearly basis, the band has recently been going from strength to strength, performing an eclectic mix of swing, latin, funk and pop. Recent directors include Matthew Hawke, Alex Hill and Andy Britton. The band recently performed its flagship event, Jazz Club Time Machine, to over 800 people, selling out for the second consecutive year.
Now under the leadership of Luke McElroy, EUJO is seeking to further develop its repertoire and play even more high profile gigs. Locally, nationally and internationally.
