A hit!

What an atmosphere, these men not only live up to their musical promise, but also feel exactly the right atmosphere needed to make the party complete. The surprise performance (piano and double bass) for my jazz-addicted father's 90th birthday was unforgettable for him and me! I highly recommend the Kars team to everyone and will definitely invite them again on the next occasion!

Very good quality

Kars and his band were the perfect setting for a very successful evening. The band was right on time and did a noiseless set up. They played delicious easy listening jazz followed by sultry Bossanova. Very good quality and all very stylish. Highly recommended.




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! 

Turn your phone to landscape to hear the music in stereo!

The most popular line-up at the Jazz Central

This jazz duo is not without reason our most popular duo line-up Whether it's your private party or a business event, the music of this jazz duo is suitable for many occasions. Because of the compact dimensions, the friendly rate and the modest volume, many hundreds of customers have already enjoyed the atmosphere that this jazz duo creates.

An economical choice

With a jazz duo like this, you have the opportunity to create a unique atmosphere of live jazz at the best possible rate. After all, this band has only two musicians but they have all the skills to create a swinging atmosphere even with such a small group.

Varied repertoire and modest volume

This jazz duo with the beautiful double bass and the versatile piano is very compact and creates a cosy, intimate atmosphere. The timbre of our music is mild and pleasant volume. We play a wonderful mix of beautiful ballads, swinging jazz, mixed with summery bossa nova and groovy rhythms.

With this jazz duo we can keep the volume very low, but if the situation requires it, we can also increase the volume. We will adapt to the situation so that there is always background music at a pleasant volume.

Compact dimensions

If there is only a small space available for a jazz band, a jazz duo can almost always play. With this all-round jazz duo we can already get started on an area of about 2 by 2 square meters.

Great class

Both the couple and myself were very satisfied with your presence and the atmospheric music that you played. We received good reactions from our guests. It is precisely the subtle, warm sound that does not force you, but creates the right atmosphere and swinging note, that makes everything right at such a party. Outstanding!
