The South London Jazz Orchestra recently moved into a new rehearsal space in Loughborough Junction and is looking to increase the number of gigs for the local community in the coming year. Our first LJ gig since the move – a New Year’s Eve party at the Sun & Doves – was a fantastic night, so we are keen to build on this success and establish more contacts in the local area.
The band performs numbers from the swing era, such as Glenn Miller and Count Basie, and is available for many types of gigs, such as festivals, street parties, pub events, as well as weddings and professional functions. Past gigs have included both Central London venues (The 100 Club, the Imperial War Museum and the London Marathon) and many South London venues including bandstands at Myatt’s Fields and Clapham Common, The Railway pub in Tulse Hill, Borough Market, and a WWII-themed event at Eltham Palace.
