Greatly appreciated!

The music was greatly appreciated by our guests, it was therefore a good choice and especially a good performance of the pieces of music that you had chosen. At our first "meeting" we have already been able to value you, so we immediately thought of you for this occasion. You were also very impressed by those responsible for the restaurant. We have therefore allowed ourselves to send them the link to your website.

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!

Overview of the repertoire


Craft musical accompaniment

Are you looking for a solid musical accompaniment for your business event, your wedding or private party and would you like to be able to converse with your guests without too much trouble, but still have the opportunity to dance nicely?

Search no further! The vintage vinyl DJ of the Jazz Central is the ultimate atmosphere creator on your occasion. With the best of jazz, soul and funk from the 60 's - 70' s - 80 's - and that played from authentic gramophone records - our vinyl DJ has been a huge success at small and large events for many years. . The craftsmanship of our vinyl DJ is a spectacular element during your event or party.

Cultured volume

One of the most important features of our vinyl DJ is that he plays music on civilized volume. You do not have to converse with a big voice, because our DJ adjusts the volume very well to the situation. At low volume when you have to, and nice present when the situation demands and allows this.

The best music from pure vinyl

Our vinyl DJ only runs stand-alone, so not in line-up with a saxophonist. In this way, the music comes out best - his repertoire does not need such an addition either. 

You sometimes see a saxophonist playing with a DJ, but that is more of an 'all-round' DJ. In that case the DJ runs a loose beat or a certain mix which offers room for solo work.

At the Jazz Central we believe that our vinyl DJ with a beautiful collection of gramophone records offers the ultimate look and character.

The music that our vinyl DJs bring on vinyl is not downloaded from the internet in an instant, but is the result of years of research and collecting rage. Every LP or single has a story.

But apart from the presentation and the story it is ultimately about the sound. In that respect, the quality of vinyl is still undisputedly the most beautiful, with the exception of a few.

How can you book our vinyl DJ?

The unique character of a performance by our jazz DJ can be dressed in various ways in your wedding or event.

  1. As a solo DJ that provides a few hours of music;
  2. As a DJ who fills a program of several hours in line-up with one of our jazz bands;
  3. As a spectacular conclusion to your party, after one of our jazz bands has performed;

1. Solo vinyl DJ performance

Of course you can hire our jazz DJ as a "stand-alone" act. He then spins the best jazz, funk and soul of gramophone records for a number of hours (often three hours, but other times are also possible).

During your wedding, our jazz & soul DJ can play a whole party in this way. In the beginning, quiet and more in the background, but as the evening progresses, he will get you and your guests on the dance floor and increase the volume, while at the same time adjusting the repertoire to such an extent that a swinging party is created.

2. Live Jazz Band in in line-up with our vinyl DJ

Do you want to complete a live performance of one of our jazz bands? Then of course it is best if beforehand, afterwards and during the breaks the music is provided by our vinyl DJ. In this way the music and the atmosphere blend beautifully, without the atmosphere being interrupted too much when the Jazz Band in pauses. In this way we can, for example, compile a complete arrangement of a number of hours, whereby the DJ perfectly complements the jazz band.

A third frequently booked package is the deployment of a live Jazz Band in for a number of hours - for example during a dinner - after which our vintage vinyl DJ takes over and lets your guests end the day dancing and swinging. This way you benefit from the best of both worlds: the beautiful appearance of a live band, as well as the spirit and dynamics of the vinyl DJ.

Genres, style and repertoire

Our jazz DJ mainly draws from the rich years '60 and' 70, which have a lot to offer if not everything in the field of soul and funk. For variety and supplement, jazz and latin from the 50 'years sounds in between, and occasionally a number from the "eighties" comes by.

What is needed?

There are not many requirements for the use of our vinyl DJ. One outlet is actually sufficient.

We take along modest but atmospheric lighting and, if necessary, provide loudspeakers, turntables and other equipment so that you can concentrate on other things.

The surface that our jazz DJ needs is very modest. With about 2 at 2 meters we can be pretty good, but of course also take into account a possible dance floor!

Where do we travel and perform?

Our jazz DJs can perform anywhere in the Netherlands, Belgium, western Germany and Luxembourg.

Music and volume appropriate

At our celebration of 100 + Green gas / earthing stations, the DJ felt good about what music (and volume) was appropriate. He created a good atmosphere during our drink. We can definitely recommend the DJ.
