Better than our idols

You only once become 65 years old so that required a party with 65 guests, excellent catering and live jazz music with a singer (Willem). We preferred the style of crooners Michael Bublé and Dennis van Aarssen, but this band was even better than our idols and exceeded our expectations; great music, super professional, with nice band members. It was a great party with all the guests, young and old, complimenting the music. We look back on it with great pleasure!




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!

Overview of the repertoire


Timeless jazz classics

Are you dreaming of a jazz band with a singer in the style of Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Michael Blublé at your company party, anniversary or wedding? Then consider a jazz band with our experienced talented singer Willem.

These great singers from the '40 and '50 inspire Willem deeply. He shares their passion for the swing era and their flair for presentation, and he expresses the romance and passion of life in beautiful songs from The Great American Songbook. As the afternoon or evening progresses, Willem will spice things up a bit and sing more funky and danceable songs from the jazz and soul history so your guests can dance when they want.

Top quality

Willem has a rare talent for engaging the audience with his voice in a subtle and effortless way. He does not impose himself or demand interaction, but simply acts as himself: a friendly person with a nice smile and a neat appearance. He has a powerful voice and you will appreciate how special it is to have musicians of this level at your wedding or party.


Willem's style and repertoire really come into their own in combination with the swinging All round 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 about 30 man), you could also consider booking Willem with our Piano Duo .
