Sofitel Legend The Grand Hotel in Amsterdam has decided to place a “beach club” in the heart of their centre point entree which we opened yesterday with a great momentum including the rules of social distancing. It was a great atmosphere for the invited guests. Till 14th of september the Grand Beach will be open for public.

We opened the event with 45 minutes of live jazz with Jazzy on the Yamaha piano with Contrabass player Thomas Pol as wingman. These two are well known from their fridaynight jazz specials at the famous Jazz & Blues cafe Nick Vollebregt.

Juliet July performs the famous song by Pharell called Happy here, always a nice moment to elevate the energy in the audience. 

The Grand Hotel Beach club will be open for three months and will def be a “talk of the town” place. In this historical building in Amsterdam lies so much history that just by being there one already feels the special vibe this location has to offer on many levels.

Juliet sings the classic house vocals of Moloko’s hit (Sing it Back) on a mash up that Jazzy Derk has made in his sound studio. This duo has stunning skills and will defenately lift up the energy of your event.

On most saturdaynights in Amsterdam, the pianist DJ Jazzy Derk has a residency where he invites 2 artist per night during a dinner2dance movement at Kitchen & Bar van Rijn on the famous Rembrandtplein in Amsterdam. On this video you can see hear and feel the amazing energy that get’s released at certain moments when the jam get’s hot. The virtuoso talent of Jessyhaymusic (Yishay Gluck) is extraordinary, he’s been touring through Europe all year and performs with international bands at major concert halls and makes time in his schedule to jam along with Jazzy Derk on occasions. With lot’s of enjoyment by all the people who were lucky to have been there that night, man the jam was ON. 

Hereby another video with some more Balearic vibes they also threw into the equasion that night. What a mesmerising evening this was! To be continued. Jazzy D ft Jessyhay.


On Saturday’s we host our weekly DJ Live concept with a dinner and a dance department at the stunning location Kitchen & Bar van Rijn located on the Rembrandtplein Amsterdam. Together with Amsterdam’s finest artists Jazzy Derk brings an atmosphere of international allure. Most visitors in Amsterdam from abroad have never seen a DJ play such funky grooves while at the same time playing the keyboard as a virtuoso. With female singers, violin players, trumpet cats, sax ladies & gents, the vibe on this night is set to last. A must have seen while in Amsterdam.

Hereby some more taste of that vibe. After the set with violin Jazzy Derk invited female singer Juliet July. Together with Juliet July Jazzy forms an energetic ensemble. To be continued.

Another fine example of this formation is the variation of famous mash-up hits they can perform such as the Sing it Back mash up originated by Moloko. There are much more of those in the repertoire, accompanied with fine keyboard chords & solo’s. Enjoy.

As resident of the night Jazzy Derk glues the night together booking the artists, programming the night and playing a lot of funky live keyboard on the tracks he DJs together with his fine taste for harmonic mixing in tone scales.
