Our most booked jazz trio with piano and double bass expanded with the jazzy sounds of the saxophone

Swinging jazz trio with the sound of saxophone

Not one line-up has been booked as often as our swinging jazz trio piano + double bass + saxophone. Not surprising, because this line-up is affordable and still gives the atmosphere of live music. The saxophone immediately adds character and dynamics to this trio.


All our line-ups, including these, are COVID-19 proof. We can take care of our performance with at least 1,5 m distance!

Greatly appreciated!

The music was greatly appreciated by our guests, it was therefore a good choice and especially a good performance of the pieces of music that you had chosen. At our first "meeting" we have already been able to value you, so we immediately thought of you for this occasion. The staff of the restaurant was also very impressed. We have sent them the link to your website.

Good volume

The jazz trio played at our wedding. They played from the arrival of the first guests to the departure of the last guest at the reception. The volume was good, being background music. They played outside and the amplifiers were inside.

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


Jazzy sound of sax

This great trio is basically formed by the very popular duo piano + double bass, expanded with swinging saxophone. In fact, this trio has everything that makes beautiful live music: the majestic double bass and the dynamics of piano. And of course... that sultry sound. The great sound of the saxophone, that can fill a room beautifully and can be heard from afar. That look of a saxophonist with that beautiful instrument. This trio has it all. Hence a guaranteed success if you have this trio perform at your party or event.

Compact trio

You don't have room for a big jazz band but do want to enjoy live jazz at the highest level with that irresistible sound of saxophone? Then this compact jazz trio is a fantastic choice. The trio takes up little space. About 2 by 3 meters will be sufficient to fit an acoustic or electronic piano, along with a double bass. The saxophonist usually doesn't take up much more space than one square meter.

Perfect choice

This much-booked trio is a perfect choice because you only have to book three musicians. Still this band will create a fantastic atmosphere at your party, wedding or event.

What a good bunch of musicians

30 June we had a fantastic party for our 40 wedding anniversary. Everything was right: the location, the weather, the food, the people and the music. What a good bunch of musicians you sent, we received compliments from all sides. Good music, but not only that, they came, looked for a good place, built up quietly without anyone really noticing and started playing nicely. No fuss, just playing at just the right volume. Thank you, the music certainly contributed to a successful party.

We greatly enjoyed this trio. Music was great as was their appearance. People from other organizations also came to enjoy the music. Dealings / contacts with the men were very pleasant. Everything was possible and not too much trouble. Super done, keep it up!
