Tuxedo Swing

Run by a student society, Tuxedo Swing is the official LSU big band, comprised of current students and Loughborough University alumni. They play everything from Big Band standards including 'In The Mood', 'Sing Sing Sing' and 'Fly Me To The Moon', through to more modern adaptations, like 'Uptown Funk'.

Tuxedo Swing rehearses on Mondays in the Cope Auditorium from 7pm during term times. Rehearsals are open to all students and alumni; there is no requirement to have reached a certain standard, you just need to feel comfortable with the music you are playing. They have music for Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Bari Sax, Trumpet, Trombone, Piano, Bass, Guitar and Drums so if you play any of these instruments, or instruments in the same tuning, then you are more than welcome. They also include singers, with a wide range of vocal numbers. Singers are auditioned at the start of each academic year.
