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!

Compact 3 - man's dixieland band

Book this swinging dixieland band, consisting of 3 professional musicians. All the necessary ingredients are present: the majestic tuba (or sousaphone) and the trumpet - two copper instruments that are so characteristic of that Dixieland sound. All of this is tastefully accompanied by the guitarist, who is nevertheless perfectly audible thanks to a mobile amplifier.

Fully mobile

Just like all our other Dixieland bands, this 3 man formation is completely mobile! The guitarist is not bound to power thanks to his amplifier that runs on a mobile battery. Also, a jazz guitar has a less old-fashioned character than the banjo and is more suitable for giving short solos.

Nothing can be more swinging

Experience the origins of jazz with this cheerful dixieland band. A wonderfully swinging three-man dixieland orchestra that plays the most swinging classics such as Oh When the Saints but can effortlessly switch to melancholic ballads like Mood Indigo from Duke Ellington.

Old fashioned? Not at all!

Of course - there are countless dixieland bands on the internet. All with clownish outfits, straw hats and uniform suits. But of course you are looking for the stylish variant - and you will find it at the Jazz Central . With us no old-fashioned, theatrical dixieland act, but classy, good looking , very experienced professionals who belong to the top of the jazz scene. This way Dixieland suddenly gets a totally different vibe and turns your party or event into a cheerful but at the same time stylish experience.
