The Busquitos play a very catchy mix of brilliantly played music and dazzling, funny entertainment that will put a smile on everyone’s face! The fun they have playing their music rubs off on their audiences as enormous amount of positive feedback they get every show proves.

The Busquitos play their merry jazzy tunes, sung with a Louis Armstrong like hoarse voice… And if the time is right, they will mingle and play a serenade, organize a limbo - or line dance, or get the audience to sing along to one of their catchy jazzy tunes.

The Busquitos play funny catchy original tunes as well as a large variety of music. Hot Club, Jazz, Pop, Rock & Roll, Classical Music, you’ll hear it all! Songs by Disney, Django Reinhardt, the Mills Brothers, Sonny Rollins and Irving Berlin, to name a few, as well as catchy tunes like Yakety Sax (Benny Hill) and The Nanny.

Musical entertainment for all ages!

The Busquitos are: Jelle van Tongeren – violin

Thomas Streutgers – saxophone

Michael Seraus – guitar

Ronald de Jong - double bass & vocals

Press quotes

"…These are brilliant Dutch musicians who deliver a fast-changing variety of musical styles. At one point the band’s zany antics succeeded in persuading some of the audience into a bout of musical chair ” Jazz Journal (UK) 2015

*…One of the most overlooked highlights was tucked away in the Old Oak, where Dutch group The Busquitos showcased their energetic and highly eccentric style of comedic jazz — jumping into the crowd at every opportunity, kidnapping audience members and staging mock weddings.”… Kelly O'Brien - Irish Examiner (IRELAND) 2015

“… an amazingly talented quartet, and to combine all that musical skill with a big dose of humour is a rare combination.” Dougal Jeffries – Tolmen Centre, Constantine (UK) 2015

“the 'Jazzy Giants' from Holland were incredibly entertaining and charming with a unique style of musicianship as they prowled around the dance floor looking for victims for their skulduggery; extremely humorous and entertaining” Swingrave (UK) 2016

“Fantastic band. Brilliant crowd interaction, brilliant musicianship, and one of the few acts I've found that's able to put authentic jazz music into a context that even people who don't listen to jazz will enjoy."

"Probably the best band I saw last year, and likely the best one I'll see this year.” Paul Bowley, Coalville, (UK) 2016
