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!



Recommended format

At our wedding we wanted to offer ourselves and the guests a great performance. And when we think about it now, we can only praise it. The clear agreements in advance already gave us a confidence-inspiring impression as far as the organization is concerned. "De Jazz Centrale" fulfills its promises, also musically. Everything neatly arranged on time. The boys of the orchestra, neatly dressed in suits, that also gave a special appearance during the performance. The music sessions during the festive meal were well received (also by non-jazz fanatics). A live performance provides a cozy atmosphere. The evening performance with Eline was a highlight. With her beautiful voice she has brought a beautiful interpretation of our request number. It was not a bland decoction of Nina Simone but for us a real goosebumps moment. The half hour of the extension of the performance was also filled with enthusiasm. Our guests and ourselves really enjoyed it. Even the waitstaff and the manager were impressed. For those who want a special atmosphere at their party/reception...a great recommendation!

Very danceable!

My daughter turned 18 and I 60. That was a reason to party! We had a great venue in the city centre of Leiden near the Hooglandse Kerk, the Branderij. We were expecting our close friends, family and colleagues. Now for music: I had listened to Eline before. Her voice complemented by musicians Nick, Han and Mark: the night could not fail. The reaction of all our guests was the same: perfect music. During the first session, a few people dared to go on the dance floor. Later in the evening the dance floor was full!

Very skilled

On the occasion of my farewell party I invited "De Jazz Centrale" to provide the musical accompaniment. This was done very skillfully. The guests were very pleased with singer Eline and the band.

Nicely adapted to the public

A very successful dinner on the occasion of our 25 anniversary, partly thanks to "De Jazz Centrale" and Eline. Highly recommended! What an enthusiasm! The genre of music they played was nicely adapted to the audience, and also the volume was very pleasant.

Fluent Portuguese

Super cool music, full of atmosphere! We couldn't have had better music than the lively jazz (double bass & piano) of the Jazz Central and the perfect vocals! Fluent Portuguese which was perfect for the Bossa Nova music. Highly recommended!

Anne & Carminha


Corona proof! In the short term, passed on to the gentlemen of the Jazz central that our wedding would continue despite the Corona. Wasn't a problem. A drummer was also added to the requested trio of sax-keys-bass without effort, because we also wanted some Latin-Bossa Nova in addition to Jazz. Fantastic move! This jazz quartet played brilliantly all afternoon during our drinks, all the guests talked about it. They looked great in the sun too. Thanks to "De Jazz Centrale" had a phenomenal wedding, recommended to everyone.

Richard den exter


A hit!

What an atmosphere, these men not only live up to their musical promise, but also feel exactly the right atmosphere needed to make the party complete. The surprise performance (piano and double bass) for my jazz-addicted father's 90th birthday was unforgettable for him and me! I highly recommend the Kars team to everyone and will definitely invite them again on the next occasion!

Edwin van Kempen

A great choice

For a grand dinner with "Great Gatsby" theme we were looking for a suitable musical setting. We found that at the Jazz Centrale . After clear consultation and advice, we decided to book singer Mylene and five musicians. A great choice! Mylene and her group have a limitless range of songs, sense the mood and occasions well, and can handle anything. From ambient music to creating a party, in this case a "Great Gatsby party", they are up for it. Mylene and the accompanying artists are all top-notch musicians and easily adjust to the situations. Great for hosts and hostesses because they take care of everything themselves. A superb, enjoyable and exceptional musical backdrop for all guests. The Jazz Central can do much more, anything is possible, looking forward to the next party!

Real professionals who create the right atmosphere with their swinging music

"De Jazz Centrale" took care of the music during reception and dinner at our wedding. Super professional artists, who played well and everything else was according to agreement. Really good value for money. Can heartily recommend them. I had contacted Kars in advance about advice for which line-up, everything was very pleasant.

Bart van den Tol


Very good quality

Kars and his band were the perfect setting for a very successful evening. The band was right on time and did a noiseless set up. They played delicious easy listening jazz followed by sultry Bossanova. Very good quality and all very stylish. Highly recommended.



Incredibly grateful

I'm incredibly grateful to Kars and his band for making our evening incredibly special - our dinner guests were amazed by the performance and the professionalism of the band. Our honored guest was extremely pleased to hear his favorite songs being performed live, especially for him. The overall experience from the first contact with Kars to evening of the performance was great. Thank you so much!

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.

Marina & Bas


Great music

Nice, warm and mellow music that perfectly matched the atmosphere of our wedding reception.



Sold immediately

Lisanne and I had been looking for a good jazz band with a Latin touch for a long time. We were delighted to find the "De Jazz Centrale" and were immediately sold when we heard the beautiful sounds of Bossa Nova in Agnes' repertoire. The performance more than lived up to our expectations. It is a shame that we were unable to enjoy it even more because of all the conversations at our wedding. I would definately book them again!

Kyang and Lisanne


Great jazz band!

"De Jazz Centrale" was very professional in every way. Their performance was great, they created the atmosphere at our wedding ceremony. As well as in the field of communication (request for processing) everything was perfect. In short, a must for anyone looking for a Jazz band.

You will enjoy ...

Looking for a great band for the musical opening of our wedding, we ended up at "De Jazz Centrale" . The previews on their site were promising and "live" our expectations were more than met. Among the guests were a number of "lovers of the genre" who have been playing the piano and sax for decades. Appreciation everywhere. With flair, humor and passion they substantiate their performance, they are very professional ... Highly recommended ... you will enjoy ...

Very professional

From start to finish, "Jazz Centrale" is very professional. It was pleasant to collaborate in this manner to have a splendid orchestra and a successful party as a result! Continue like this!

Communion party

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.

What a nice band

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.

Marike stadermann



Your performance was fine! I found it a pity that the music outside was not good to hear and therefore you got less attention than what I wanted. Luckily that got better later in the evening and there was even dancing.

Great frame

It was a bit exciting for us because we unfortunately did not have the opportunity to see you in action earlier than Saturday, but that tension fell away very quickly. It was a great setting of what was a great evening for us. As far as I am concerned, the right tone has been reached, not too heavy, not too light. Even the non-jazz enthusiasts among our guests enjoyed it very much. I would therefore have no difficulty in recommending you to others.

There are, in my opinion, no things that can be done differently or better. I also found it pleasant that the communication was fast and clear. I quickly got an email back and you called immediately after it. Even though I was a little late, there was still a lot possible. You have also contributed to achieving my budget, you have also been flexible in this. On the day itself I found it very nice that you were present so early and also played to the end. The music was very good and connected well with the atmosphere. I have experienced the cooperation as good and will think of you when we need a jazz combo.
