A summer evening in Berlin. Just a few meters away there are probably traffic jams and tourist buses queuing in second row – but that does not bother Max Raabe. He is riding his bike past Brandenburg Gate whilst masterfully tying his bow-tie.
Dashing, dapper and debonair, million-selling German crooner Max Raabe believes the timeless melodies and songs of the 20s and 30s have an inherent magic. He combines nostalgic flair with pop-star appeal, as well as a good dose of self-irony and dry comedy. Impeccably dressed in white tie and tails, he is joined by the Palast Orchester.
Max Raabe & Palast Orchester come from Berlin and are worldwide the leading band of music from the era of the Weimar Republic. Hilarious songs like ‘Rosa, Reizende Rosa’ (Rosa, Ravishing Rosa), romances like ‘Tonight Or Never’ and classics like Kurt Weill’s ‘Mack The Knife’ are brought to the stage along with standards like ‘I Won’t Dance’, ‘Night and Day’ or ‘Sweet Sue’.
