Four fiery and fearless sisters flirt with their favourite misters named Jazz, Pop, Close Harmony & Twenties Swing.

Feisty voicings and hot-blooded horns resonate together in a full, new sound that's firmly kept in order by a skin-tight rhythm section. YesSister, JazzSister exceeds her limits and puts a brand new show on stage in which the young ladies confidently master fresh arrangements that range from fragile hits to party knockouts.

Who's afraid of high heels, short skirts & bewitching voices?

Peter Eldrigde: “I had the pleasure of getting to hear YesSister, JazzSister during a recent workshop I was leading at the Conservatory in Amsterdam. I was immediately impressed and moved by their voices, their musicality, their arrangements and the joy in what they do. The group is very polished and mature, and have a natural and comfortable stage presence. I can now happily say that I am officially a fan of YesSister, JazzSister and look forward to where their lives take them as a collective”

Gé Titulaer: “a unique ‘four-of-a-kind’ with fresh ‘swing’, strong arrangements, warm supple voices and a charming performance”

Sylvi Lane: “Everytime I watch the Sisters perform I feel a big smile coming up and I see it happening in the audience around me: The Sisters make the world a bit better with their music and ‘super sound’.
