About us:

We are a group of 23 young musicians at Bodmin College that form Bodmin College Jazz Orchestra led by the flamboyant and lovely Ben Vincent - music director at the college. We play a variety of music, ranging from Duke Ellington to Lady Gaga to The Beatles, quite a selection! Our experience and musical competence allow us to be available for bookings, whether it’s a birthday party, a fete, a wedding, an anniversary, or just a get together! We play as a band on a regular basis at the college for concerts, special events and annual Christmas, Easter and Summer Jazz cafes.


Who are our members?
We’re made up of 23 male and female students from the college, all in different year groups from our newest members in year 7 and 8 all the way to our most senior members in sixth form.

The Band Committee

  • The next band committee meeting will be on the 17th September. We'd love to see as many people there as possible including parents and band members! It is a very 'informal' committee; you don't have to feel you have to take part in everything the band does - just come along and find out all the 'inside gossip' and take part as much or as little as you have time for.
