Warmly recommended

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

Above expectations!

Communication went smoothly from the first contact.The Jazz centrale understood exactly what we had in mind for our party and thought about the evening. The final implementation was above expectations! Pianist played fantastic on our own piano, drummer and double bass played great together, singer sang flawlessly.

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


Diva pur sang

SaraLee is one of those rare singers who is a real diva on stage. If you love the jazz classics of the legends, you will also enjoy them sung by SaraLee. With swinging songs like "Fly me to the moon" and "Take the A-train" she creates a classic jazz atmosphere with every performance that you know so well from the LPs and CDs, which greats like Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald recorded in their finest hours . Especially suitable for your Great Gatsby party!

Especially for Roaring 20's and Great Gatsby parties

Do you want to throw a party inspired by the Roaring 20s and The Great Gatsby? Then a jazz band with SaraLee is perfect for you! We play both vintage jazz, as well as some more contemporary swing and grooves so that we can create a wonderful structure during our performance. That way your guests will be taken into the vintage swing style, but could also dance on some more familiar styles. Success assured!

Varied repertoire

SaraLee can perform not only the classic songs of the old masters, but also the catchy songs of artists from nowadays like Amy Winehouse, Erykah Badu and Bill Withers: a wonderful playlist to spice up your party or event, which begins with a more conventional tone, and then turns into a lively mix of jazz, soul and groovy pop songs.

SaraLee is one of the most sought-after Dutch jazz singers and has an enormous amount of experience. With her enthusiastic and cheerful appearance she makes every performance an unforgettable experience. You and your guests will amazed by every jazz band that SaraLee is a part of!

At which line-ups can SaraLee be booked?

All our vocalists come out best with the swinging line-up of our Allround Piano Trio.

For even more variation and that real jazz sound you can expand this line-up with    saxophone

For smaller or more intimate situations (for example a dinner for 30 people), you could also consider booking SaraLee with our Allround Piano Duo .

Appropriate advice

We have been well helped by the Jazz central. Appropriate advice for what we were looking for for our wedding and a fantastic execution. It was a successful evening.



Super successful party

We had a very nice and relaxing evening with "De Jazz Centrale", many of the guests gave compliments about the band and the choice of music. What I especially liked is the website where everything is explained very clearly and to which you can respond. Also the response back was very smooth. The people of the band themselves very friendly and everything together has contributed to a super successful party. Thanks!

Business event


If you want to create some spontaneity and fun at your event, and you enjoy listening to a classy assembly of jazz musicians then "The "Jazz Centrale"" is the band for you. Changing their pace from slow ballads to up-beat tempo they create a wonderful atmosphere from dreamy listening to feet-stomping rhythms. They just appeared before 450 guests at the Stainless Steel World gala dinner in Lanaken, Belgium, 30 th and their up-market enthusiasm and excellent musicianship soon had guests on their feet dancing and enjoying the wonderful atmosphere and sounds they create.
