The Spectacles Jazzband was founded in 1992 and has Gorinchem as its home base. At this moment it is the main band for the Jazz Hall ’72 in Gorinchem, which is one of the oldest jazzclubs in the Netherlands.

The orchestra is specialized in old style New Orleans jazz music.

Performances can be booked for different occasions and can be adjusted to what is needed and for different goals and interests.

Choices can be made from:

a. Performance on a stage with sound equipment
b. Performance on a stage without sound equipment
c. Mobile performance without sound equipment

The Spectacles, still playing with the same people since it was founded, have achieved a good name in the old-style circuit and are therefore asked to perform at different jazzfestivals in the Netherlands and abroad. The disarming style of playing has the most surprising effects on audiences. The orchestra is also famous for their tv performances, performances in church services with an accent on jazz (gospel), and their shows alongside harmonies and brass bands.

The Spectacles Jazzband is accomodated in a foundation.
