The Jazz Cafè

It’s all about hanging out with other dancers, catching some nice food and drinks, browsing the second-hand market, enjoying some live music, and enjoying the occasional cabaret performance!

13:30 – 16:15 Live music with Janne & Daan, 3 sets to settle into.

15:00 – Cabaret

Janne & Daan: a duo that will give you goosebumps. They will play some nice jazz standards but also go for a little soul sound!

13:30 – 16:15 Live music with Eleanor, 3 sets to settle into.

17:00 Upside Down Shake


Baptized Eleanor, this band swings to meet its audience. Nette’s voice makes one dream away to other times and places. In a journey through time she stops at Billie Holiday, Mildred Bailey and Maxine Sullivan. Pieter and Sam have been forming a solid rhythm section for years, pulling the sounds of manouche swing from under the dust. Meanwhile, Anton plays the beautiful melodies of swing jazz from the ’20s to the ’40s with idiosyncratic interpretation.


12:30 – 17:00 DJ Swingtime Ivan opening the afternoon & DJ Superheidi linking and closing the afternoon.

14:30 – 16:00 Live music with Swing Kitchen, 2 sets!

15:00 Cabaret

17:00 Upside Down Shake


What do you get when you invite 5 quirky musicians for an evening of swinging? At Upside Down, pianist Heleen Andriessen will bring a brand new band. Expect a recipe of danceable classics and unknown gems. Heleen, Emilie, Joachim, Lara & Jan serve you graceful melodies and crazy piano jumps on a bed of steady walking and driving drums. Come taste this simmering stew!
