Well done to everyone who recieved their results yesterday, and welcome to Loughborough University!

Tuxedo Swing is the official jazz band of Loughborough Students' Union. We are a semi-professional band that play at events ranging from weddings to private functions!

We play everything from big band standards and classic funk numbers through to more modern adaptations, like 'Uptown Funk'.

We put on social events throughout the year, including trips to the pub after rehearsals, curry nights and cheese and wine nights! There are also sober socials, such as the infamous Tux Barbeque, to ensure everyone is included. We always ensure everyone feels welcome, and we pride ourselves on being very close friends as well as band-mates.

We welcome players of all skill levels! So if you are just starting out, or an experienced player, we look forward to welcoming you into our band for the new academic year!

If you have any questions, feel free to drop us a message through Instagram or Facebook, or get in touch via our website:

Union Jazz Update (COVID-19):

In light of the latest government advice regarding the global outbreak of COVID-19, we have taken the decision to cancel our showcase event, Union Jazz, which was scheduled to take place this Saturday (21st March).

This is not a decision we’ve taken lightly, and we understand and sincerely apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause. A full refund will be issued to you shortly and we hope that you are able to recover any additional travel or accommodation costs you may have committed to.

The band and Committee put in a huge amount of effort in preparation for the event and I know this news will be incredibly disheartening for them. I’d personally like to thank them all for their dedication and hard work; it has been a genuine pleasure to chair their Committee this year.

Thank you very much for your continued support for Tuxedo Swing; I know it is hugely appreciated by all our members. We hope to rearrange the event for some time in the next academic year and will keep you updated on developments.

Kind Regards,

Nic Holmes
(Chair, LSU Tuxedo Swing)
