Desert Jazz Entertainment Agency


Welcome to Desert Jazz Entertainment, the Agency.


Established in 2013 DJE agency is fast becoming a popular and recognizable brand name in the UAE for providing quality live entertainment services.  We work very closely with our clients to ensure that the right artists and musical styles are always introduced to a venue or event. Our main focus is quality of service and that our clients always see a positive return on investment.


Desert Jazz Entertainment Agency was born shortly after Paul Moutarde, DJE CEO and Founder made the decision to move away from the security of corporate life and follow his dream of becoming a full time musician and owning his own business. With demand for his own personal performances rapidly increasing Paul began to develop the agency to ensure that his network of clients would still receive the same quality and level of service even if he was personally unavailable for a particular date. A select few friends and trusted musicians began performing under the Desert Jazz umbrella and this has continued to grow month on month, year on year.  Subsequently the agency has developed into one of the UAE’s most trusted and successful live music providers.


Quality Musicianship


As our reputation expands so does our network of musicians who are always engaged and happy to work with us. Being a musician himself Paul understands the importance of providing clear directions and the correct working environment to ensure our artists can maintain their performance levels at all times. All of our artists are carefully selected and we will only ever supply musicians that Paul has either personally performed with or has seen perform live. Our musicians are all very experienced and reliable and they love what they do.  With this ethos we can ensure that we maintain our standards and our niche in the market place and continue to provide exclusive and effective live music services.


Reputable Service …the heart of Desert Jazz


Our business is based purely on repeat custom, referrals and word of mouth. We do not advertise and our growth is purely organic. Our clients continue to come to us for additional requirements and musicians frequently approach us after hearing about our reputation as an employer from their friends or colleagues.  Quality remains our main focus over volume and we choose our partnerships carefully. We now have long term relationships with several of the biggest and most prestigious hotel groups in the UAE and many leading event companies choose Desert Jazz for their bespoke corporate events, parties or weddings.   


The Desert Jazz ethos


With 15 years senior management experience in the retail and commercial sectors in both the UK and the UAE Paul Moutarde has been able to combine his vast knowledge of business and management with his passion for Music. “Understanding customer service, KPI’s, effective communication, attention to detail and quality of product are just some of the key reasons that our agency has become so well established since we began in 2013 and why so many of our clients chose to partner with Desert Jazz.” Paul Moutarde, CEO and Founder, Desert Jazz Entertainment.


We provide solo artists, duos, trios, quartets, bands and DJs for both regular work and one off events. As our name suggests our main genre and area of expertise is with Jazz although our services extend to Pop, Soul, Soft Rock, Blues and mainstream or commercial music. We are always happy to discuss bespoke packages and unique requirements.
