Slick and nostalgic, yet unmistakably modern, Germany's Max Raabe & Palast Orchester return to Longwood Gardens. The ever-elegant, debonair Raabe and his 12-piece orchestra embody the halcyon days of 1920s and ’30s Weimar Berlin in all its high style and musical glory. In April 2018, Berlin-based Max Raabe & Palast Orchester will be crossing the Atlantic with their critically acclaimed show "Let's Do It".

More about Max Raabe & Palast Orchester
The Palast Orchester was founded in 1986 by Max Raabe and a group of fellow music students in order to play German music from the 1920s. In 1992 they found themselves on the German charts with their song Kein Schwein ruft mich an (Not a single pig calls me), written by Max Raabe. Teaming up with film director Sönke Wortmann two years later for the film Der bewegte Mann (The Most Desired Man) made them known to an even wider audience.
In 2000, Max Raabe & Palast Orchester received an ECHO award for their CD Charming Weill and also scored well in international charts with two albums on which they interpreted modern pop songs in the style of the 1920s. The same year, their tour to Israel was documented on film, Max Raabe in Israel, which opened the Jewish Film Festival Berlin-Potsdam 2011.
In February 2017 Max Raabe & Palast Orchester presented their latest show Das hat mir noch gefehlt (Oh no, not that!), where fans voted on their favorite songs, which are included in this show.
