Incredibly grateful

I'm incredibly grateful to Kars and his band for making our evening incredibly special - our dinners guests were amazed by the performance and the professionalism of the band. Our honourary guest was extremely pleased to hear his favourite songs being performed live especially for him. The overall experience from the first contact with Kars to evening of the performance was great. Thank you so much!


Leuke sfeervolle jazz muziek door zeer professionele muzikanten!

We hadden een leuke avond en de muziek heeft daar zeker aan bijgedragen! Ook van onze gasten hoorden we dat terug. Bedankt voor jullie inzet en misschien tot een volgende keer!

Watch and listen

Really very 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!

Wat een lekker bandje

Wij zochten naar livemuziek voor tijdens de ceremonie en voor het eten. De jazz centrale heeft precies gedaan wat wij wilden. De muziek was heerlijk en het viel pas echt op toen het er niet meer was. We hebben veel complimenten gehad van gasten. ‘Wat een lekker bandje!’ kregen we veel te horen en daar zijn wij het helemaal mee eens!

Warmly recommended

The evening was a great success and that is partly due to the fantastic performance of the trio. The passion and professionalism that the musicians radiated matched seamlessly with the experience we wanted to give our guests. I will certainly keep you in mind for future events and will warmly recommend you to colleagues.
