ℹ️ About

Moonlighters is Blowsoc’s auditioned Big Band which gives all students the chance to play music from a variety of styles. Moonlighters is a highly popular and well-known ensemble within the university, playing regularly at gigs, weddings, balls and socials. They play a range of styles from traditional jazz ballads to funk music, all of the music is guaranteed to make you want to dance! Although the ensemble is committed to a high standard of playing with lots of concerts, we also have regular socials and opportunities to see other jazz bands. This year, a lot of the ensemble has graduated which leads the opportunity for new players to join! If you would like to audition for this amazing ensemble, please sign up at the Welcome Fair.

πŸ‘ͺ The Committee

Ellie Rennie

Moonlighters Manager

Ellie plays the trumpet as a degree and also as a hobby, which works out very well. In her spare time she enjoys baking and watching repeat episodes of trash tv to procrastinate from uni work (but not from moonlighters managerial work of course).

Jed Roylance

Social Secretary, and Moonlighters Musical Director

Jed is a 3rd year music technology student, playing trombone in a lot of the ensembles. A friendly face who enjoys spitting biscuit crumbs down his instrument. Feel free to message me about socials or anything brass related!
