Een groot succes

De Jazz DJ was een groot succes. Voelde de sfeer goed aan en draaide grote diversiteit aan jazz muziek. Niet alleen de muziek was goed geregeld, ook de organisatie er om heen is top. Snel en makkelijk schakelen. Compliment aan Jazz Centrale en de DJ!

All right

Everything went well, the jazz DJ was all right.

See and hear

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!

Overview of the repertoire


Craft musical accompaniment

Are you looking for a solid musical accompaniment for your business event, your wedding or private party and would you like to be able to converse with your guests without too much trouble, but still have the opportunity to dance nicely?

Zoek niet verder! De vintage vinyl DJ van de Jazz Centrale vormt de ultieme sfeermaker op uw aangelegenheid. Met het beste van jazz, soul en funk uit de 60's-70's-80's—en dat gedraaid van authentieke grammofoonplaten—is onze vinyl DJ al jarenlang een groot succes op kleine en grote evenementen. De ambachtelijke draaikwaliteiten van onze vinyl DJ vormen een spectaculair element tijdens uw event of feest.

Cultured volume

One of the most important features of our vinyl DJ is that he plays music on civilized volume. You do not have to converse with a big voice, because our DJ adjusts the volume very well to the situation. At low volume when you have to, and nice present when the situation demands and allows this.

The best music from pure vinyl

Our vinyl DJ only runs stand-alone, so not in combination with a saxophonist. In this way, the music comes out best - his repertoire does not need such an addition either. 

You sometimes see a saxophonist playing with a DJ, but that is more of an 'all-round' DJ. In that case the DJ runs a loose beat or a certain mix which offers room for solo work.

Bij de Jazz Centrale zijn we van mening dat onze vinyl DJ met een prachtige collectie grammofoonplaten de ultieme uitstraling en karakter biedt.

De muziek die onze vinyl DJ's meebrengen op vinyl is niet in een oogwenk gedownload van internet, maar is het resultaat van jarenlang speurwerk en verzamelwoede. Elke lp of single heeft wel een verhaal.

But apart from the presentation and the story it is ultimately about the sound. In that respect, the quality of vinyl is still undisputedly the most beautiful, with the exception of a few.

How can you book our vinyl DJ?

The unique character of a performance by our jazz DJ can be dressed in various ways in your wedding or event.

  1. As a solo DJ that provides a few hours of music;
  2. As a DJ who fills a program of several hours in combination with one of our jazz bands;
  3. As a spectacular conclusion to your party, after one of our jazz bands has performed;

1. Solo vinyl DJ performance

Of course you can hire our jazz DJ as a "stand-alone" act. He then spins the best jazz, funk and soul of gramophone records for a number of hours (often three hours, but other times are also possible).

During your wedding, our jazz & soul DJ can play a whole party in this way. In the beginning, quiet and more in the background, but as the evening progresses, he will get you and your guests on the dance floor and increase the volume, while at the same time adjusting the repertoire to such an extent that a swinging party is created.

2. Live jazz band in combination with our vinyl DJ

Wilt u een live optreden van een van onze jazzbands helemaal completeren? Dan is het natuurlijk het mooist als vooraf, achteraf en in de pauzes de muziek verzorgd wordt door onze vinyl DJ. Op die manier loopt de muziek en de sfeer prachtig in elkaar over, zonder dat de sfeer te zeer onderbroken wordt als de jazzband even pauzeert. Op deze manier kunnen we bijvoorbeeld een compleet arrangement samenstellen van een aantal uren, waarbij de DJ de jazzband uitstekend aanvult.

Een derde veelgeboekt arrangement is de inzet van een live jazzbandje gedurende een aantal uren—bijvoorbeeld tijdens een diner—waarna onze vintage vinyl DJ het overneemt en uw gasten dansend en swingend de dag laat afsluiten. Zo profiteert u van het mooiste van twee werelden: de prachtige uitstraling van een live bandje, en ook de pit en dynamiek van de vinyl DJ.

Genres, style and repertoire

Our jazz DJ mainly draws from the rich years '60 and' 70, which have a lot to offer if not everything in the field of soul and funk. For variety and supplement, jazz and latin from the 50 'years sounds in between, and occasionally a number from the "eighties" comes by.

What is needed?

Er zijn niet veel vereisten ten aanzien van de inzet van onze vinyl DJ. Eén stopcontact is feitelijk voldoende.

We take along modest but atmospheric lighting and, if necessary, provide loudspeakers, turntables and other equipment so that you can concentrate on other things.

The surface that our jazz DJ needs is very modest. With about 2 at 2 meters we can be pretty good, but of course also take into account a possible dance floor!

Where do we occur?

Onze jazz DJ's kunnen overal in Nederland, België, het westen van Duitsland en Luxemburg optreden.

Great compliment

A big compliment for the DJ. We had a fantastic wedding and the DJ had a big share in that. Fine music, good construction, the evening went very naturally. Thank you very much!

Music and volume appropriate

At our celebration of 100 + Green gas / earthing stations, the DJ felt good about what music (and volume) was appropriate. He created a good atmosphere during our drink. We can definitely recommend the DJ.

Unique atmosphere

We have booked the Jazz DJ at our wedding party. The Jazz Centrale takes a very professional approach and is very open with communication. Still nice at something as personal as a wedding. The Jazz DJ is ideal if you want to decide how loud you want the music, you do not want Dutch "sing-along" and no noisy band where no one can hear each other anymore and at the end of the party with whistling ears back home to go. The music of the Jazz DJ is quite calm, but still danceable and certainly enhances atmosphere. And the music is very special, mostly unknown, sometimes just known. All from Vinyl records; nice crunching gives a unique atmosphere.
