over Jazz On The Sofa

Stand up for Live Music

Jazz On The Sofa is a Jazz Festival that focuses on high-quality jazz and world music in a chamber music setting (Small ensembles like solo and duo formations). On the first Sunday of November, living rooms in Zeist (around the castle) will be transformed into stages where you experience, together with the artists, pure intimate music. Concerts with some added value. During the Corona period we left our original concept and organized an online edition (2020) and a Hidden Diamonds edition (2021) as a walk through the Zeister History (in different large historical locations).

The 2022 edition also will be held in bigger locations as we can not protect our audience and artist’s safety regarding Corona in living rooms yet.

“Jazz On The Sofa” is an afternoon of surprises. “Jazz On The Sofa” is synonymous for: intimate setting, personal involvement and quality. The organization chooses a combination of (inter) national artists in combination with the gorgeous musicians from our region and surprising new artists who shine a bright light to the future of jazz.

‘Jazz On The Sofa’ was an initiative of the Lotz Of Music Foundation. Now the JAW-Z Foundation takes over. The festival is initiated, directed and produced by Mark Alban Lotz.
