Why jazz?

By hiring a live jazz band or jazz DJ for your party or event, succes is almost guaranteed!

With films such as La La Land and The Great Gatsby, jazz and swing are back in full interest and of course we applaud that!

At a time when many parties are musically accompanied by impersonal Spotify playlists, it can be a relief to go somewhere where craftsmen perform live background music!

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

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