Vivian & Johan Mulder are a genuine jazzcouple from Haarlem, the Netherlands. From
their childhood on they listen to jazz since both their dads were/are active as musicians
in the light music genre. They are both skilled and schooled musicians who perform
with the same ease during a dinner- or weddingparty as on a jazzfestival or in a
Following the tradition of their musical dads they add a slight touch of old school
entertainment to their well performed jazzstandards, and they also add vocals to
their music, mostly in English, because they like to play in the tradition of the
American Songbook, but some lyrics are in Portuguese in the Jobim/Bossanova tradition.
The Mulders know a lot of tunes and that’s why many Dutch musicians -or US expats-
like to play with them, because usually they don’t take ‘no’ for an answer.
Enjoy the music samples on the samples page called: “Muziekfragmenten” or the snapshots
on the gallery page called: ”Fotogalerij”, or the YouTube video’s on the YouTube
page. In following the links you’ll take a small course in Dutch :-) The site is
mainly in Dutch because the majority of our customers are Dutch: at this particular
moment we only perform in the Netherlands. By the way: reactions in French or German
are welcome, we can read these languages. Regards, Mulder & Mulder.
Recently I bought a new small HD camcorder, so new YouTube-videos are on their way,
the quality will be acceptable.
