Max Raabe & Palast Orchester
"They play with a stylishness, grace and vitality that do not call attention to their impressive virtuosity." –New York Times
A singer of incredible range, Raabe has the remarkable ability to capture the cunning rasp of the cabaret soloist, the brilliance of the bel canto hero, the slick melodiousness of the revue beau, the carefree timbre of the early jazz singer, as well as the falsetto of the ragtime vocalist, all backed by his stellar 12-member band. Fans of Pink Martini, you can't miss this! $125 (includes cocktails and appetizers).
