Product Description

Join the Sydney University Jazz Society Big Band for an evening of fun and frivolity at their annual Swing Ball in what is sure to be a huge night!

Featuring the vocals of Elizabeth Smith and Nicholas Hindley, the band will be performing classic tunes from the 1930’s and 40’s. Whether you’re front and centre on the dance floor, or sitting back and enjoying the music, an unforgettable evening is sure to be had by all.

As part of the University of Sydney Jazz Society, the Big Band consists of students from all across the university who study a variety of degrees such as Arts, Science, Economics, and Engineering. But the one thing they all have in common is their appreciation for Jazz. Throughout its numerous reincarnations since its inception five years ago, the one thing that has remained constant is the band’s commitment and enthusiasm for playing Jazz. Not limited to just jazz and swing, the Jazz Society Big Band is also adept at latin and funk.

As a part of the Jazz Society, they have been the flagship band of Swing Ball, hosted every year by the Jazz Society. In 2014, as a slight departure from the norm, they played a funk-based event instead of swing and was well received.

Being a fully fledged big band, they have been a part of numerous events both on campus (Verge Festival, University of Sydney Info Day, Sunset Jazz) as well as off campus (Sydney Uni Law Ball, Sydney Uni Med Ball, Med Students Conference) to much critical acclaim.

The Jazz Society Big Band keeps getting better and better every year with each reincarnation, and will no doubt be delighting audiences for years to come.
