Jazz Band

The Alton College Jazz Band is an anarchic collective that performs a wide range of in yer face music from jazz standards, through the music of Armstrong and Ellington, a good dollop of Charles Mingus, to the more modern works of Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis and Kenny Wheeler, all mixed together with a big helping of world music. The ACJB plays a large number of concerts each year. In recent years it has given a short concert tour of France, performed in front of 1000 people at the Birmingham International Conference Centre, and is regularly invited to perform at the Farnham Festival and Swanage Jazz Festival. Most instruments are welcome. An ability to improvise would help, but it is not a requirement.

Alton College is very proud of its Jazz Band - an institution!
