Jan recently shone in the impressive Ziggo Dome. With his intense sound, he manages to touch people deeply time and again. ProRail, Hilton, DHL, ESA, Min. BZ, and Nationale Nederlanden are some of Jan's clients. His talent has already conquered many countries, including Nigeria, Bali, the Caribbean, France, Switzerland, Germany and Belgium.
With such a wealth of experience, the perfect choice to make your event an unforgettable success. Not a Showbird 'Goldwing' act for nothing.
See below Jan's highly versatile repertoire, with his excellent freestyle as a specialty.
Jan strives to ensure that his music seamlessly matches your requirements. Loyalty and reliability are of paramount importance to him, which is why he values good contact with the client.
SAX & DJ
Saxophone and DJ go hand in hand at Jan's performances. He has been working with regular DJs for years, and is also open to your own DJ. DJs play a crucial role at dance parties, but can also make a valuable contribution to more subdued atmospheres. Jan also plays alone and then plays the music himself and also provides the sound system.

Jan grew up in Uden (Netherlands), an environment with a lot of talented musicians. He had a group with Marcel Schimscheimer (Toots Thielemans, Mink Deville, Gino Vanelli). Jan also performed in those early years with Hans and Candy Dulfer.
Moving to the west, he met Juan van Emmerloot & Walter Latupeirissa (TOTO-member Steve Lukather, Snowy White, Walter Trout) They did a lot of gigs in Holland and played several of Jan's songs.
In the beginning of the 90's Jan did a lot of performances with Thijs van Leer (Focus) Bobby Jacobs (Focus), Roeland Jacobs (Laura Figi), Marcel Dorenbos (Laura Figi, Victor Bailey) and Ruben van Rhoon (Candy Dulfer).
During his 6 year period in Curacao Jan performed with Franklin Bata (Candy Dulfer), Roy and Elmer Louis (Passport), de Kast, the Rembrand trio, Konkie Halmeyer and Aaron Heick (Simon and Garfunkel, Lady Gaga). For years Jan performed in the popular café the Tropen with his band.
Coming back from Curacao Jan produced together with Juan van Emmerloot, his own CD 'the Voice Inside' (on Spotify), which had some excellent reviews. The Jan van Oortband played songs of this CD on festivals (Jazz in Duketown) and also they performed at the support act of the famous fusion act the Yellow Jackets.
Juan also produced the CD of John Bundrick, former keyboard player of the Who. Jan did the sax work on that album (Spotify). Together with Ferry Lagendijk (Gare du Nord) they formed their trio LEPR (Spotify)
We had an unforgettable evening with DJ and Jan van Oort. What a party and how good they are! Highly recommended!!!!!
The act was fine. The music was good, exactly as expected. The contact beforehand was correct. A neat, nice man.
Jan played from the ceremony to the place of the food so there was no silence. He brought a very good atmosphere and a relaxed vibe. The guests really liked it. The music Jan chose was a perfect fit.

Jan is an atmosphere maker for the very young guests as well as the adults swinging on the dance floor.
We enjoyed it!
, Ylonka Lemmers
We thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful music by Jan & Tresor. Definitely worth repeating!
, Renée en Stein Kanters
Jan helped create a fantastic atmosphere at our wedding with his beats. We agreed in advance which music style we preferred, the contact with Jan was very pleasant. During the act he played perfectly to the audience. Only positive reactions!
, Daan Hagemeier
I think I speak for our entire party when I say it was a great success! Therefore, on behalf of all of us, I want to thank Jan tremendously for the great addition to this evening. For anyone who loves a party, but also for music during dinner, Jan is the right place for both. Highly recommended for anyone who loves the sounds of the saxophone. Jan thanks and hopefully until next time.
, Marike Fokker
We enjoyed Jan in combination with a DJ and a percussionist. He makes great music and mixes among the guests. He makes it a very nice interactive show! We enjoyed!

What a great evening we had with DJ Delafresco, trumpeter Thomas Wessels and saxophonist Jan van Oord! Really fantastic, almost impossible to describe so cool. Three pros with a super feeling for people, entourage and wishes. All three picked (from different sources) for their own specific style and inspiring performance. For our party it was the golden combo. The evening, upon arrival of all guests, loungie built up with DJ Dalafresco and Thomas Wessels. Thomas and DJ Delafresco, having played together before, are perfectly matched. This allows Thomas to go completely free throughout the crowd, giving everyone from front to back, yet even outside (which made for a very nice picture at sunset) a piece of his performance. Lounge and funk, super cool! Later in the evening, Jan van Oord took over with his funky sax sound. Jan and DJ Delafresco had never played together before, but for both of them I believe this was not the last time. A brief tune-up beforehand was enough for them to make it a blast night. Almost everyone was on the dance floor the whole evening, the "roof went off", exactly as we had hoped in advance. Jan also had lots and super fun interaction with the dancing audience. The accompanying technique and lighting were perfectly taken care of by Erwin Bakkum. It's that we don't throw parties like this every year, otherwise they would definitely be back soon. But maybe we will meet them, individually or together, at another party, because so many guests asked for all three of them at our place, that says something!
Both gentlemen did a fantastic job. We had good contact with each other beforehand. We know where to find them for a next time as well. Thank you!
Fine contact with Jan prior to the performance. He likes to think along, is flexible and keeps his appointments. The performance itself was also a success! Very nice addition / surprise to our party with DJ. It was a success and definitely recommended!
, FESPA Nederland Association
Jan unfortunately did not show up. I spoke to him by phone and it turned out to be unfortunate in the confirmation. Agreed with Jan that the amount will be refunded to our account
Super party from relaxed to uptempo incl. 'Karaoke' sing along. Jan senses atmosphere well and takes the floor or leaves it with the partygoers, totally OK.
, Anne den Harder
Jan is very friendly and the communication is very pleasant. Jan played saxophone beautifully at our company party and exactly as we wished. During dinner a bit quieter and at a pleasant volume. Later in the evening together with the DJ a bit more up-tempo. We enjoyed the music!
, Lesley Daris
From the moment I came into contact with Jan, the cooperation was very pleasant. Jan is very thoughtful and finds it just as important as the organizer that the event is a success. The wonderful saxophone sounds provide a nice summer atmosphere. Highly recommended!
It's nice to hear your guests say afterwards that they enjoyed the party and that the saxophonist set the mood.
The coordination with Jan before and during the evening was very pleasant. The music was meant to be supportive and was also performed in that way. Good for conversation and dancing as we hoped.
Perfect cohesion of music and entertainment. Great background music! Great dance party afterwards with the DJ
Fine people, fine music!!! Highly recommended!!!
Jan gives an extra touch to your party with his saxophone! People feel more invited to come to the dance floor and party. The atmosphere is set firmly with a saxophonist / DJ combination! Jan also thinks along well with finding a DJ. Very satisfied! Really a must!
Everything was super well organized! He was standing next to the entrance. We wanted people to be in the mood right away when they walked in. The atmosphere was good right away. Jan really had a chemistry with the audience. He did it very well!
Jan van Oort performed for us together with his DJ. This great and enthusiastic duo entertained us all evening and everybody really enjoyed themselves. Thanks for the great evening, see you next time!
Saxophonist Jan van Oort is a friendly man. He knows how to create a good atmosphere. We even booked him an hour longer when he was there
Saxophonist Jan van Oort came for my friend's birthday and everyone enjoyed themselves. We found it super good
, Beachclub Wantveld
Was nice on the terrace. Good music choice. He played live with music he brought himself. Guests loved it!
We can look back on a beautiful and pleasant day organized for the residents of Symphony. It was a beautiful sunny day in June where the residents could sit outside with a delicious barbecue and a cozy get-together. After the barbecue there was a pleasant get-together with musical support from Jan van Oort. Jan entertained the residents with his cozy music on his saxophone where the residents made a dance and had a lot of fun among themselves. Thank you Jan for your contribution, the residents enjoyed your performance.
, Jessica Goldstein
Jan is a true musician and entertainer. He plays every song retegoed and with passion. He certainly gives something extra to the party. Our guests and we enjoyed ourselves. @Jan, thanks again! also for thinking along in the entrance of us as bridal couple, really cool! Greetings Rik and Jessica
Despite the temperate weather Still very nice evening made of it!
Because of the CORONA measures, Jan has performed on various outdoor sites around the care centre Op t Hoogveld Sint Anthonis. The beautiful sounds, the impressive performance made that the residents were moved. Thanks a lot (via Facebook)
Hello Jan, What a pleasure to listen to those beautiful sounds of your saxophone. This was exactly what we needed in this confusing, difficult corona time. Lovely to listen to the many famous songs from the time of the residents but also of the employees.
Class performance, entertainer with passion for the music, who easily joins the company! We had a very nice evening, also thanks to Jan!
fine man in contact with his audience (via Facebook)
We enjoyed the music by Jan van Oort! He came pleasantly on time so that he could set himself up properly. He had the background music with him and because of his music the mood was in as soon as the guests came in. Very special.! He adapted his choice of music and sound well to the people around him and it made it all our party! Highly recommended
, Stef L.
Jan played at my grandmother's funeral. He provided the ambiance she deserved. Beautiful music, which not only reflected the ceremony but also our emotions. Jan, thank you for your contribution to a funeral that meant a lot to me!
He can play with his heart (via Facebook)
Great performance. Jan felt the atmosphere well and tuned the music to it. Everything we agreed in advance Jan fulfilled. So highly recommended.
We had Jan and DJ at our Dealer Show. Jan knows how to create the right atmosphere, and is interactive with the attendees. It is also important that Jan communicates well and keeps his appointments. We can only recommend Jan for every event.
We celebrated our 10 year marriage in Ibiza style. Well that worked out with Jan. We had a super party with lots of compliments for the successful theme?
, Marie Ange
Thanks to the swinging music of a top artist and the nice interaction with the guests everyone enjoyed the party and Jan could get everyone on the dancefloor! Top evening, for which thank you Jan!
Jan took care of the musical interpretation at our wedding, we look back on this with a very good feeling! We really appreciate the way he filled in our evening, with an eye for the company he knew exactly how to play the right music, which created a wonderful lounge atmosphere. We got a lot of nice reactions on this! We had nice contact beforehand to coordinate our wishes. Jan is a professional who from the first moment gave us the feeling that it was all right. Thank you Jan, and keep up the good work!
It was a great performance at the Smaakmarkt in Wijk aan Zee, where Jan van Oort and his swinging Sax got everyone dancing all over the square, in front of and behind the stalls, to people who went crazy. Many thanks, next year again !
Jan and Tresor were really great! Fine men, easy communication to arrange everything. Our guests loved it too! Definitely recommended!
Jan van Oort is a great saxophonist! In combination with the DJ and singer they gave us a great day. We couldn't have wished for better. We will always hire Jan van Oort for all our business/private events. Thanks Jan!
We enjoyed the performance of saxophonist Jan. He performed with his own playlist, during our Ibiza garden party. The beautiful saxophone sounds gave the evening even more shine We had discussed our wishes well in advance. He responded quickly to our messages and thought along well. Nice to work with and we look back on a wonderful party evening.
Jan's performance was very successful! We and the guests at our wedding enjoyed it. When Jan started to play, the atmosphere was good right away. Definitely worth repeating!
The performance was expected and created a festive atmosphere during our company party
A very relaxed performance which has contributed to a very pleasant get-together for my 60th birthday. A saxophonist who knows how to steal hearts inconspicuously with beautiful songs.
Jan and dre gave the DJ a great evening! Building up the dj set up was done within half an hour and the show that was turned down after that went very smoothly with top music and high quality! All in all Jan made it a beautiful and unforgettable evening!
We hired Jan van Oort to perform during the lustrum gala of our study association. We could not have wished for a better saxophonist, he played along to the music of the DJ and gave a lot of atmosphere! Also on songs he didn't know he could improvise very well and he made a party out of it! We had such a good time that we finally asked him to perform another half hour longer. I can recommend it to everyone to hire Jan as saxophonist at your party!
and makes a difference on every party. He is a dear friend and a great soul and his paintings are wonderful too (via Facebook)
Jan gave a fantastic performance. He managed to get the atmosphere right and was, for us very nice, "inconspicuously" present.
We delivered songs to Jan, and he played them fantastic at our wedding during the reception at the waterfront. He also played his own rehearsal in the same genre and atmosphere. Because Jan played in the background of our reception, the guests enjoyed themselves very well. I can recommend Jan to everyone, he comes well on time and keeps his appointments very well.
Jan was very professional and got everyone dancing. He quickly made contact with the guests but did not do this too emphatically. He responded smoothly to the audience and what was going on around him. It was a fantastic party!
Jan is at home in all music markets. In addition, he is pleasant and flexible in his contact. "it's your party, so say it." He thinks it's important that the guests have a good time. Contributes to a cozy atmosphere and moves between the guests. Anticipates requests. Also on the youth present by playing along with the "not" musical actions of the regionally popular KAFKE All in all a successful party, good music, nice weather and a beautiful location.
On November 4, 2017 in the Drommedaris in Enkhuizen during our 40 years together. Jan gave us a great evening. Jan had already neatly prepared his things that we arrived. Jan feels good how the atmosphere is and responds to that. Every now and then the feet off the floor and then a bit slow again. Everyone was full of praise about Jan and the guests had never seen a Saxophonist before at a party like this that makes it even more fun. It was also a surprise for most people we were able to keep it pretty quiet. Jan is also a very nice person, flexible, friendly and quiet. (via Facebook)
On September 23rd 2017 Jan made a fantastic contribution to our wedding day at Groot Warnsborn in Arnhem. During the ceremony he accompanied several songs beautifully and afterwards during the drink he created a fantastic atmosphere. Jan is a breed artist, but also very flexible and very pleasant in the contact (via Facebook)
"On August 5, 2017, after 30 years of marriage, we have again made our wedding vows to each other. And Jan played during our party. After having made the first contact with Jan van Oort we immediately got a nice and good feeling. We discussed a few things by phone about the genre to be played, the location, time and the budget to be spent. On our wedding day we didn't have to arrange anything at all. He set everything up silently and when we entered the room it was partying from the first minute until the last minute. We and our guests were completely happy, there was even dancing. Jan thank you very much for your musical entertainment. We really enjoyed it." (via Facebook)
Super saxophonist! (via Facebook)
THE BEST! (via Facebook)
