piano + double bass + drums
We highly recommend. Professional and cheerful musicians who adapt perfectly to the atmosphere of the event. Correct advice in advance and flawless execution on the day itself. Tastes for more.
I'm incredibly grateful to Kars and his band for making our evening incredibly special - our dinner guests were amazed by the performance and the professionalism of the band. Our honored guest was extremely pleased to hear his favorite 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!
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 classic line-up
This line-up of the the Jazz Central is the most versatile trio and can suit various parties and events. A jazz trio in this line-up is familiar to you from the famous jazz trios of the '50 and' 60: Oscar Peterson Trio, Bill Evans Trio, Ahmad Jamal Trio, etc. all had piano, double bass and drums. Not without reason this a very popular line-up . Herbie Hancock songs such as "Watermelon Man" or "Cantaloupe Island" are also included.
Volume: from very subtle to danceable
With this jazz trio we can adjust the volume from 'whisper quiet' to quite in the foreground. That is why this line-up is suitable for a wide range of events: dinners, home parties, company drinks and wedding parties.
You do not have to worry about the music becoming too loud due to the presence of drums. Our drummer is very good at playing softly because of the use of the 'brushes'.
We can easily adjust the volume of the music, so it is no problem if you ask us to play a bit louder or softer.

piano + double bass + jazz guitar
Classic jazz trio, featuring piano + double bass + jazz guitar, in the vein of the renowned Oscar Peterson and Herb Ellis jazz trio from the '50. Superb swing, ideal for dancing and a volume that can be adjusted to the occasion. Definitely one of our most requested line-ups! And the piano? We simply bring it along.
Allround Jazz Duo
piano + double bass
A compact jazz band consisting of piano and double bass. Modest volume, reasonably priced and yet the atmosphere of live music. Not without reason our most frequently booked line-up!
Saxophone Jazz Trio
piano + double bass + saxophone
Not one line-up has been booked as often as our swinging jazz trio piano + double bass + saxophone. Not surprising, because this line-up is affordable and still gives the atmosphere of live music. The saxophone immediately adds character and dynamics to this trio.
