Great jazz band!

The Jazz Central was very professional in every way. Their performance was great, they created the atmosphere at our wedding ceremony. As well as in the field of communication (request for processing) everything was perfect. In short, a must for anyone looking for a Jazz band.

Great compliment

Great compliment for the singer and orchestra members. It was great. All my guests very satisfied.




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!

Overzicht van het repertoire


Authentic soul comes alive

Do you love genuine soul and a whole lot of swing from the '40s and '50s, then Alex is the one for you! With his striking red hair, he makes a stunning appearance on any  event, wedding or party,

Alex's repertoire has a focus on the soul hits from the '70' s, but he effortlessly switches to a somewhat more classic repertoire with recognizable songs from Frank Sinatra, for example. Alex is largely inspired by singers such as John Legend, Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and James Taylor.

Alex is a natural on stage and you can feel it. A superb performance without being overbearing. He gently sings the most lovely ballads, and takes you on a journey with swinging jazz classics like "All of me" or "Bye Bye Blackbird" and finishes the party with a set of fine soul classics such as "Lets stay together" and "You are the sunshine of my live ".

In practice this means that we warm up an average performance with pleasant and recognizable swing classics, after which we quickly switch to the groovy rhythms of soul and sometimes even a hint of disco!

At which line-ups can Alex be booked?

Alex's style and repertoire really shine in combination with the groovy line-up from the  Allround Jazz Trio .

Want to add even more variation and the ultimate jazz sound of the saxophone you can have the vocalist play with the Allround Jazz Quartet.

For small or intimate situations (for example a dinner for 30 guests), you might also consider booking Alex with our Allround Jazz Duo.

Atmospheric and professional

Atmospheric and professional, but especially fantastic jazz! From the first sounds of the piano and double bass the atmosphere of our wedding party was set. Our guests were impressed by Alex. You have made our wedding unforgettable. Thank you incredibly!

Highly recommended

For our wedding party we asked the Jazz Central to take care of the music for a few hours. We have not regretted this. A great band with singer, who have created a good atmosphere! The preparations also went smoothly, despite some logistical changes on our part. Highly recommended!
