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.
