Why jazz?

With the hiring of a live jazz band or jazz DJ for your party or event, success is almost guaranteed!

With films like La La Land and The Great Gatsby, jazz and swing are again in the spotlight. And of course we greatly welcome that!

At a time when many a party is musically framed by impersonal Spotify playlists, it can be a relief to get somewhere where professionals play live background music!

A live jazz band from the Jazz Centrale plays jazz music that:

  • elegant, classic, atmospheric, accessible and developed;
  • attractive for all ages and types of guests;
  • suitable for both background and foreground;
  • can be adjusted to virtually any budget;
  • to hear the best music in history. From the Great American Songbook to bossa nova from Brazil!
