Cancelled: Max Raabe & Palast Orchester
Founded in 1986 by Max Raabe, the Palast Orchester from Berlin embodies the style and music of the 20's and 30's with a cool, contemporary twist. Their repertoire includes Irving Berlin and Cole Porter masterpieces, as well as German standards from Kurt Weil, and other composers of the Weimar Republic. To add a modern edge, the program is often interspersed with a few stylized renditions of pop hits along with original songs written by Raabe himself.
