Romantic or festive swinging guitar music during your wedding, reception or garden party with the warm sound of the classical guitar.

Christiaan de Jong switches effortlessly between jazz, classical and flamenco guitar. Known songs like Blue Bossa, Lullaby in Birdland, Girl of Ipanema, My Favourite things a la Joe pass or Sylvain Luc, but also pieces by F. Sor, F. Tarrega, H. Villa Lobos, A. Piazzolla or A. Lauro, L. de Nervaez or D. Scarlatti or his own jazzy flamenco pieces or Bossa Nova inspired improvisations

Very suitable for special moments in the foreground or just as a mood setter in the background, private parties, wedding ceremonies, living rooms, churches, gardens, galleries, museums ..... At weddings, he usually plays quiet music such as Romance Anónimo or a prelude by J.S. Bach and then during the reception more (Latin) jazz and/or flamenco. On request he sometimes also adapts (pop) songs for the occasion. He usually brings his own very bright amplifier, which provides a warm and natural sound.

The given price for a 2 hour gig is an indication. Leave your specific wishes in the request and receive an appropriate proposal.

Christiaan de Jong is an international artist and one of the few Dutch guitarists specialized in jazz and improvised music on the Spanish guitar. He played with musicians like Oene van Geel, Eric Vloeimans, Harry Sparnaay and as a soloist with orchestra in Spain, Finland, Italy and Germany. He also likes to play solo concerts, not only in halls, but also in churches, squares and living rooms. Own work and improvisations, influences of jazz, avant-garde classical, flamenco, Latin, Arabic music. Exciting virtuoso moments alternate with introverted quietness. If necessary, pieces composed especially for the occasion.

Amazing performance

It was super easy to communicate with Christiaan before the wedding and for the song preparation. He did exactly what we expected from the wedding, and he really brought a nice atmosphere to us. Thanks very much Christiaan.

Very high quality

The performance exceeded my expectations. After some extra google in which I could hear a lot of work and was impressed by the high quality, this was fully realized on the spot. Also in the contact beforehand and on the spot great professionalism. It was a wedding with 65 people, christian played for 3 hours with only a short break during dinner and welcomed evening guests in a garden with a subtle amplifier perfectly tuned in terms of sound level. Very laudatory feedback from all wedding guests. In short: certain quality and professionalism, a strong asset for every occasion!
