About Us

Event Jazz, based in Istanbul, is a pool of the best Jazz musicians in Turkey. You can choose different formations as Duos and Trios or even bigger formations are possible.

Event-Jazz-Istanbul is specialized for fitting every event where smooth Jazz in the background is demanded. The band fits with its equipment in any room or place where 2-4 square meters are available. The overall volume of the performance allows you to have conversations and not feel disturbed by loud music that dominates the room, yet still gives a flair of a relaxed jazzy atmosphere. This might be:

company events, dinners, presentations, celebrations, openings, exhibitions, private party, marriages or birthdays

In short, everywhere you need a decent jazzy atmosphere. All the musicians featured in our ensembles are professionals with degrees acquired from prestigious conservatories and performing successful at national and international occasions.
