Get Involved: Societies
No matter what you listen to you‘ll find a society for you.
The Jazz and Blues society couldn’t be more perfect for anyone who is a fan of those genres! Ranging from the musically gifted, to those who just like to groove to a good tune, everyone is welcome! Socials range from attending gigs, to playing in their Big Band or even just having a boogie to some tip-top music. Their GIAG is on 12th October where anyone of any ability is welcome to come along to the open band practice.
Are you fed up of no one being interested in the same kind of music as you? RockSoc brings together likeminded people who have a passion for all different types of rock music: metal, rock ‘n’ roll, indie, punk, goth, emo, industrial. You name it and you’ll most definitely find someone who likes the music you like. You’ll also get to expand your own knowledge, as socials range from clubnights in Leeds to branching out to cities like Sheffield and Hull, all designed to introduce you to what the Northern rock scene has to offer. Why not try out their GIAG at Leeds Uni’s own Mine, on 1st October.
Tucked away right at the very top of the Union, this is the secret gem of all the music societies. The fact that it is so well hidden, makes the discovery of the music library even more exciting. A place that is both cozy and inviting, music lovers alike gather to sit back and listen to some of their favourite artists. Buying a membership for a year (at a bargain price of £6 for the academic year), will give you access to thousands of vinyls, CDs and cassettes. Guaranteed to make any music lover weep at the extent of the libraries collection, this is a society not to be missed.
If you’re a budding musician who wants to find a great set of musicians to jam with, or if you just love going to see live gigs, then this is the society for you. Musicians have free access to the rehearsal space in Raven Room with gigging equipment of the highest quality provided! At the heart of the society is the celebration of the live music scene Leeds has to offer and being able to connect with people with similar music tastes.
Established in 1897, the Gryphon is one of the Union’s oldest societies and the students of Leeds official publication. Here at the music section, we welcome everybody and anybody, no matter how obscure or random your music preferences may be. Or if you’d prefer to express your opinions on the current refugee crisis, or review your latest TV series obsession, the Gryphon has 12 different sections that you can write for and be a part of.
