Why live music with a Jazz Band in?

Our live jazz music creates a serene atmosphere in which memories and emotions can find a place. A live jazz band at the funeral ceremony underlines the dignified and respectful atmosphere.

You can choose from a wide repertoire of all the famous jazz songs; touching ballads, beautiful light swing and melancholic blues and gospel. But of course also traditionals like Take Five or Red Roses for a Blue Lady. And for the enthusiasts, we can even play cheerful styles like boogy woogy. Everything in consultation, everything appropriate.

"The beautiful subdued melancholic jazz during the farewell service has made the ceremony an intensely beautiful memory for my father."

- Birre Yazar - Whale 


"I miss the old one but with such a closing...I will never forget it. And many present (many elderly, Dad was almost 94 years old) have already said...I want it like that...something special."

- Hilda van Spronsen

- Simone Schreiber

When does the Jazz Band in play?

Uiteraard bepaalt u zelf wanneer onze jazzband speelt. Graag geven we u een indruk van de mogelijkheden:

We spelen bij de binnenkomst van u en uw gasten. Dit geeft direct een warme, intieme sfeer. U en uw gasten kunnen rustig aan het ceremonieel wennen. Tijdens de ceremonie spelen we tussen de verschillende bijdragen door. Toespraken, liedjes of overdenkingen krijgen zo een gepaste omlijsting.

Het is bijzonder sfeervol wanneer de jazzband speelt terwijl u en uw gasten een laatste groet brengen aan uw dierbare. Terwijl de muziek klinkt, geeft ieder zijn gedachten en emoties een plek.

About us

U wilt natuurlijk geen enkel risico lopen op zo'n bijzondere gelegenheid als de uitvaart van uw dierbare.

Bij de Jazz Centrale bent u verzekerd van zeer ervaren beroepsmusici. Daarom kunt u met een gerust hart de Jazz Centrale laten zorgen voor de muzikale omlijsting. Door het grote team hebben wij altijd last-minute musici beschikbaar. Bovendien bent u verzekerd van een volwaardige invaller in het geval een muzikant plotseling uitvalt.

Naast optredens op uitvaarten, verzorgen wij de muzikale omlijsting van zakelijke borrels en privé aangelegenheden.

A Jazz Band in at the reception

Steeds vaker wordt een uitvaart afgesloten door gezamenlijk het glas te heffen. Wanneer u dat laat omlijsten met live jazz, wordt de droevige dag in passende sfeer beëindigd. U kunt iedereen spreken in een ongedwongen setting.

Uiteraard kunnen we ook op een andere locatie, bijvoorbeeld in een nabijgelegen horecagelegenheid, live jazz verzorgen. We passen dan het repertoire aan, zodat er een meer ontspannen sfeer ontstaat.

Request numbers

Als uw dierbare graag naar jazz luisterde, dan heeft u ongetwijfeld verzoeknummers. We hebben een groot repertoire en komen graag aan uw wensen tegemoet.

Your certainties

  • Representative and frequent musicians
  • Musicians who arrive well in time
  • Musicians with a broad repertoire of hundreds of jazz songs
  • Musicians who can very well estimate which music is appropriate
  • Musicians who manage their instruments well and can play very softly
"Unforgettable was also the saxophonist who had walked before the funeral procession to the grave, and received us there with atmospheric, serene jazz sounds. The atmospheric music deeply moved us, and with us all the guests present."

- Michel Blom
