SLJO is much more than just a Jazz Orchestra. We are a spirited and committed group of dedicated musicians from many different backgrounds and of a wide range of ages. The principal aim of SLJO is to promote Big Band jazz music in the community and have as much fun as possible while doing so.

We invite you to browse around the website to find out more about us.

We play upwards of thirty gigs annually and in the past few years have performed at the Ealing Jazz Festival, Dulwich and Sydenham Arts Festivals, the Clore Ballroom at the Royal Festival Hall, the Lambeth Country Show and on numerous bandstands right across the capital. We annually entertain runners at both the London Marathon and the Royal Parks Half Marathon held in Hyde Park.

We also often play at weddings, awards ceremonies, community events, private parties and local pubs.
