Welcome to Southampton Grad Band

Southampton Grad Band, UK

Southampton Grad Band (SGB) is a friendly, sociable group of musicians who enjoy playing a variety of wind band music – from the classics to selections from musicals, films and even the latest chart albums.

Despite what the name suggests, we aren’t just a band of Southampton Uni graduates! Our name reflects our origins with the 9 founding members looking to continue making music after graduating from Southampton Uni and hence creating the Southampton Grad Band.

Since then however, we have welcomed members from any academic background and currently have a complement of around 30 musicians with a mutual love of playing from a wide range of ages who meet regularly for practices and concerts.
