A great choice

For a grand dinner with "Great Gatsby" theme we were looking for a suitable musical setting. We found that at the Jazz Central . After clear consultation and advice, we decided to book singer Mylene and 5 musicians. A great choice! Mylene and band have an inexhaustible repertoire, feel the atmosphere and moments well, and can really do everything. From background music to making a party, in this case a "Great Gatsby party", they can do it. Mylene and the accompanying musicians are all race musicians and quickly adapt to the moments. Great for host and hostess because they arrange it all themselves. An excellent, pleasant and extraordinary musical setting for all guests. The Jazz Central can offer much more, everything is possible, on to the next party!

Music invited to dance

The roaring twenties evening of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra with the screening of the film The Artist was framed by the authentic sounding Jazz Band in. The music invited to dance. It became a stylish conclusion to a stylish evening.

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


Experience the Roaring '20s

The music and charisma of this special band will take you back to the nostalgic atmosphere of the years' 20 of the last century. You imagine yourself in a sultry nightclub with red plush, champagne and whiskey ...

The band has a unique vintage sound and together with the warm voice and 'personality' of singer Mylène, they bring humor and lots of fun alongside upbeat jazz. The repertoire of this special band is inspired by years of '20 swing, flaming gipsy jazz, but also nostalgic ballads in the style of Billie Holiday are on their repertoire.


Possible line-ups

The basic line-up of this vintage Jazz Band in consists of our singer Mylène, a swinging guitarist and the robust double bass. This immediately forms a small trio with full sound and swinging repertoire. It is also possible to choose for piano instead of guitar.
