Croydon Youth Jazz Band is a group comprised of some of the finest young musicians from across the borough. The group provides an opportunity for them
to perform a wide range of musical styles, including Jazz, Funk, Soul, Salsa, Swing and Motown music, by artists including Duke Ellington, Count Basie, John Coltrane, and more modern artists such as Stevie Wonder. The band also regularly performs pieces by independent and lesser known composers.
CYJB has toured in Germany, Croatia, Belgium, Portugal and Holland, as well as being extensively involved in music within the community, having played at Crystal Palace FC, the Croydon Council Awards, The Ends Festival, and regularly with the South Norwood Community Festival – to which we have been very pleased to be invited back this year!
