Incredibly grateful

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!


Business event


Really very important! Listen to our demos with headphones or good speakers!

Kleine luidsprekers zoals van een smartphone, tablet of laptop kunnen onmogelijk de diepe rijke klank van de prachtige contrabas, sousafoon of tuba weergeven. Daarom is het zo belangrijk om met hoofdtelefoon of goede luidsprekers te luisteren! 

Note: chance of competing!

Draai uw telefoon naar liggend om de muziek in stereo te horen!

Overzicht van het repertoire


This jazz trio summarized

  • All-round repertoire, from swinging jazz to bossa nova and latin to funk and everything in between;
  • Pleasant volume, even of the drummer (thanks to the "brushes");
  • Suitable for small and large parties and events;
  • Expandable with, for example, saxophone, the unique vibraphone or vocals;
  • Sounds like: Oscar Peterson, Dave Brubeck, Horace Silver, Gene Harris, Ahmad Jamal, Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock

The classic line-up

Deze samenstelling van de Jazz Centrale is het meest allround en dus geschikt voor diverse feesten en evenementen. Een jazz trio in deze samenstelling kent u ongetwijfeld van de populaire jazz trio's uit de jaren '50 en '60: Oscar Peterson Trio, Bill Evans Trio, Ahmad Jamal Trio, etc. Ze bestonden allemaal uit piano, contrabas en drums. Niet voor niets is dit dus een erg populaire samenstelling. Ook liedjes van Herbie Hancock, zoals "Watermelonman" of "Cantaloupe Island" passeren de revue.

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.

Onze drummer kan dankzij de 'kwastjes' echt fluisterstil spelen. U hoeft dus echt niet bang te zijn dat de muziek, door de aanwezigheid van drums, te hard wordt!

Het volume van de muziek kunnen wij heel makkelijk aanpassen, en het is geen enkel probleem als u ons vraagt om wat harder of wat zachter te spelen.

  • Tip: zoekt u een jazztrio dat mobiel moet kunnen zijn? In dat geval kunt u eens ons mobiele jazztrio beluisteren.

Style: from swing to samba

Dankzij de aanwezigheid van drums kunnen we bovendien een breed scala aan stijlen spelen. Van de klassieke jazz- swing (goed om op te dansen) tot zuid-amerikaanse ritmes als Bossa Nova en Samba: het zit allemaal verwerkt in ons repertoire.

Bent u op zoek naar een jazz band waarop gedanst moet kunnen worden, ook dan is dit Piano Trio dus een hele geschikte keuze.

If there is no piano

Is there no piano available at your location? No problem at all! We can either bring our professional electronic piano, or you can rent a real piano at a very competitive rate.

What a nice band

We searched for live music for during the ceremony and dinner. The Jazz Centrale did exactly what we wanted. The music was great and it only really stood out when it was gone. We have received many compliments from guests. "What a nice band!" we were told a lot and we totally agree!
