Join Us!

Auditions are coming up! September 27th for wind instruments and voice, and October 16th for other instruments. Interested? Sign up now! Just send us an email at See you there!

The SBBN obviously is a Big Band that consists of students. As a result, the lineup is subject to change regularly. So we often are in need of new enthusiastic and talented musicians! For an overview of the currently open positions and more information have a look at our Facebook page! In case there is no free position that fits your talent, you can still sign up so that we can get in contact as soon as this position is free again!

As a member you can choose to join us for an undetermined time or you can play along for a given project. Every semester, there will be one project with respectively one show in January/February and June/Jul. Rehearsals are taking place in the center of Nijmegen: Every Monday you can find us in “Wijkcentrum ´t Oude Weeshuis” at “Papengas 8” from 19:00 to 21:45. We always put in all effort into challenging music with a lot of passion.

We are a student Big Band, which means that next to sharing our passion for music we also make room for social activities. For example, in the form of weekly fade outs at bars, monthly nighty out and legend…wait for it… dary rehearsal weekends!

Are you an enthusiastic student at the HAN or the Radboud University and looking for a new musical challenge in Nijmegen? Sign up! If there are no free vacancies for your instrument at the moment, you will be contacted when there are. We are a student bigband so it happens quite often that people come and go away.

There will be auditions for:

  • Trumpet
  • Trombone
  • Trombone (lead)
  • Bass trombone
  • Guitar
  • Bass guitar
  • Drums
  • Keys
  • Singer (m/f/x)

Open rehearsal

Every half a year (In September and February) we organize open rehearsals where you can come and play along without any obligations. A few weeks before the open rehearsal there will be a link here to register.
