About The Event
"Enormous grace and acuity…and a dapper host of unflappable silliness." -Plain Dealer
Max Raabe and his Palast Orchester return by popular demand! With slick, nostalgic, and unmistakably modern sound, the Berlin-based ensemble channels the high style musical glory of the 1920s and early-1930s Weimar big band with uncanny precision and humor. A singer of incredible range, Raabe has a singular ability to capture the cunning rasp of the cabaret singer, the confident belcanto hero, the oily melodiousness of the revue beau, the carefree timbre of early jazz, as well as the falsetto of ragtime, all backed by his stellar 12-member band.
