Max Raabe and Palast Orchester...new release "Golden Age" and American tour dates




Berlin's famed crooner Max Raabe and his twelve-piece Palast Orchester will be bringing their collection of meticulously recreated songs from the Weimar era of 1920s Germany as well as the Great American Songbook to six United States cities beginning March 2nd, 2014. 

The tour will support their upcoming February 25th release on Deutsche Grammophon, 'Golden Age', which draws from the era between the two world wars and features timeless classics like "Singing in the Rain", "Dream a Little Dream" and "Cheek to Cheek" as well as tongue-in-cheek interpretations of pop favorites "Sex Bomb" and "Oops...I Did it Again". Raabe mesmerizes a new generation as he celebrates an era when dance halls were thriving, every restaurant had an orchestra, and the Charleston became the sensation.






As the title suggests, Golden Age is a collection of classics from the Great American Songbook. Drawing from the era between World War I and II, with titles like"These Foolish Things," "Singin' In the Rain," "Dream a Little Dream" and "Cheek to Cheek," Raabe mesmerizes a new generation with timeless tunes by Cole Porter, Noel Coward and others and celebrates an era when Josephine Baker danced dressed only a banana skirt, dance halls were thriving, every restaurant had an orchestra and the Charleston became the sensation.
