Incredibly grateful

I'm incredibly grateful to Kars and his band for making our evening incredibly special - our dinners guests were amazed by the performance and the professionalism of the band. Our honored guest was extremely pleased to hear his favorite songs being performed live especially for him. The overall experience from the first contact with Kars to evening of the performance was great. Thank you so much!


Business event

Watch and listen

Really important! Listen to our demos with headphones or good speakers!

Small speakers such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop can not possibly display the deep rich sound of the beautiful double bass, sousaphone or tuba. That is why it is so important to listen with headphones or good speakers!  

Be careful: risk of rhythmic moving!
