Fluent Portuguese

Super cool music, full of atmosphere! We couldn't have had better music than the lively jazz (double bass & piano) of the Jazz Central and the perfect vocals! Fluent Portuguese which was perfect for the BossaNova. Highly recommended!

Very good quality

Kars and his band were the perfect setting for a very successful evening. Band was right on time. Noiseless set up. Delicious easy listening jazz followed by a sultry Bossanova evening. Very good quality and all very stylish. Highly recommended.



Watch and listen

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!

Overview of the repertoire


One of the singers of the Jazz Central is Agnes. With her beautiful voice she brings the most beautiful bossa novas, the happiest sambas and wonderfully swinging Latin. Just like all our other musicians, Agnes is of course trained as a professional jazz musician and conservatory.

Tasteful for almost any occasion

You can do many line-up of the Jazz Central 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 in 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 Central 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.

Sold immediately

Lisanne and I were looking for a good jazz band with a Latin touch for a long time. We were therefore delighted to be against it the Jazz Central and were immediately sold when we heard the beautiful sounds of Bossa Nova in their repertoire. The performance more than lived up to expectations. It is a shame that we were unable to enjoy it even more because of all the conversations at our wedding. I would book them again soon!

Warmly recommended

This is the second time I am organizing a company party with life music from “ Jazz Central " 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.

Business event

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!
