Just Jazz

Just Jazz is a yearly event in Delft, and recognised as the biggest and best-known event of Groover. The first edition took place in 2010, after which it has significantly grown over the last nine years. The location changed from Speakers at the Burgwal, to Theatre De Veste in the centre, to the current location at Lijm & Cultuur.

Last year Just Jazz celebrated its 10th anniversary with 1400 visitors with intense, eminent and new jazz. Both members of Groover, students and nonstudents visited the festival and created a mixed audience. The program contains big names, talent from the Dutch jazzscene, and the best Groover bands. The last years performances were given by Gallowstreet, BRUUT!, New Cool Collective, Koffie and Broken Brass Ensemble among others.

Besides these big names also young talent can be seen on stage. Combos consisting of members, current and old, get a chance to perform in front of an amazing audience. This is perfectly in line with the vision of Groover for students to play together, grow as musicians, and make people enthusiastic for jazz. Different ages, backgrounds and interests come together to enjoy live jazz music.


On the 21st of November 2006 the Delft Student Jazz Association Groover was founded. In thirteen years Groover has grown from only a big band to a genuine association with alsmost 350 members. Groover consists of a varied group of people with a love and interest for music and jazz.

Besides the many events, the society is also a platform for music and socialising. Groover has the following activities: weekly jams and monthly two events on average. These events consist of workshops, lectures, masterclasses and parties.

The organisation of Groover is a board of five, twenty committees and some projectgroups. The enthusiastic and active members keep the society, bands and association combos alive, and organise the diverse selection of activities. For more information you can visit the website
