What a service

"What a service and what a sound! Partly because of that the Jazz Central Our Christmas dinner turned out to be a very nice party. What a beautiful voice Mylene has! Toppers! Thank you very much. University of Twente ICTS"


Josee Wesseleer - University of Twente
Completes it

"On 8 December last year, we (Progress Software) organized our “annual Christmas party” at our head office in Rotterdam with the musical accompaniment of the Jazz Central. The adage they use "with consultation we come to the best solutions!" certainly applies to this professional organization.

After a few minutes of looking at the website of the Jazz CentralIn my preparation, I was quickly approached by Kars Veling through the chat function asking if everything was clear, and if I had any questions, all this through a pleasant and very service-oriented approach. The choice was therefore quickly made to finalize our booking.

I say: see you next year Kars!"
