Meteen verkocht

Lisanne en ik waren lang op zoek naar een goede jazzband met een Latin touch. We waren dan ook verheugd om tegen de Jazz Centrale aan te lopen en waren meteen verkocht toen we de prachtige sounds v Bossa Nova die zij in het repertoire hebben hoorden. Het optreden maakte de verwachtingen meer dan waar. Jammer dat we door alle gesprekken op ons huwelijk er niet nog meer van hebben kunnen genieten. Ik zou ze zo nogmaals boeken!

Warmly Recommended

This is the second time I am organizing a company party with life music from “Jazz Centrale”. The first it was a Jazz quartet with Bossa Nova singer Agnes and this time it was a Jazz Quartet with Jazz Singer SaraLee. Both were equally great. Warmly recommended not only for quality of the music but also for the smoothness of the organization.

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! 


Note: press first on to start the music.

Overview of the repertoire


One of the singers of the Jazz Centrale is   Agnes . With her beautiful voice she brings the most beautiful bossa nova's, the happiest samba's and lovely swing latin. Agnes, like all our other musicians, is of course professionally trained jazz musician and conservatory.

Tasteful for almost any occasion

You can do many line-up of the Jazz Centrale with Agnes. For example with a duo of piano and double bass for an intimate atmosphere at your dinner or small reception. But also with the classical jazz quartet for a complete swinging jazz band at your party. For really small occasions it is also tasteful to only hire a jazz guitarist with Agnes. This creates a particularly intimate atmosphere in which the sultry sounds of Agnes under the accompaniment of guitar or piano fill the room in a tasteful way.

Specialist in bossa nova

Agnes specializes in Bossa Nova. That is the wonderful sultry rhythmic jazz music from Brazil that has taken a huge flight in the years '50 and' 60. Partly thanks to the beautiful songs by Antonio Carlos Jobim ("The Girl from Ipanema"), Astrud Gilberto, Joao Gilberto, and many others.

In the original Portuguese

With the Jazz Centrale we can deliver unique quality thanks to Agnes: she sings the Bossa Nova's in the original Portuguese. That gives a huge extra dimension to this Brazilian music. Where most singers in the Netherlands have to limit themselves to an English translation, Agnes can play a beautiful Bossa Nova repertoire in the beautiful original language.

Really fantastic

We would like to thank you for a very positive contribution to our wedding reception. All guests have responded very enthusiastically to your musical performance, with the right volume, the quality of the musicians and also the singer frequently mentioned. The line-up of drums, piano and bass were an invaluable good advice for our space, in combination with the beautiful, warm sounds of Agnes! You have actually brought what we had hoped for and had in mind beforehand. The only sad thing we found the fact that we have fully enjoyed you, but have not been able to convey this personally. We were probably so impressed with the atmosphere that the personal thank-you was left out. But hereby our maximum thanks. It was really great!

Kim and Rim Posthumus

Many compliments

We enjoyed your performance during our party on 3, we also received many compliments from our guests. Together with Agnes you form an excellent team, music to listen to, but where you can also converse with each other. Your performance has certainly contributed to the success of our party. If there is another reason for a party! we will definitely come back to you. Again thanks a lot!

Very liked

We really enjoyed the music. We really liked the line-up between the Quartet and the DJ! I have heard many positive reactions to jazzy music.

Robbert and Marjolein Hamer

Exactly right

We were super excited about the performance! This trio has certainly contributed to the fact that it has been a very nice drink! The music in the background was indeed just right and not intrusive! When it was over, we regretted that we had not booked a bit longer! But we know that now for the next time, because it will definitely come!
