After six long years, the nonchalantly charismatic vocalist Max Raabe and his perfectly dazzling Palast Orchester will finally be back at the Fabulous Fox!     

On March 7th, the Goethe-Zentrum / German Cultural Center is delighted to once again welcome these incredible musicians to Atlanta.     

With faultlessly fitting tuxedo, hair slicked back, and a cheeky look, Max Raabe sings the best of the ’20s and early ’30s with amusing nostalgia. Songs, hits, and couplets. Cuban rumbas, cheerful foxtrots, elegant tangos.   

Raabe’s baritone, backed by his 12-piece big band and its plucky clarinet, strings, sousaphone, and banjo – along with his gift for comedic rambling between songs – enables the group to transport the listener completely to a smoky Berlin club.   

The ironic lyrics suit the times today as they did eighty years ago. They have found a young audience which has discovered and learned to love the skewed humor and mocking irony, the melancholy of these superficially harmless songs and their amusing nostalgia.   

Audiences and critics agree – the wry and unsmiling but always charming and hilarious lead singer and his superb orchestra are “Fascinating!” (New York Times, November 2007) and “…the musical equivalent of an Absinthe Cosmopolitan” (Santa Barbara Independent, October 2008).   

Get the best tickets while they last to see this exquisite performance by the artists that sell out Carnegie Hall!   

A limited number of $250 VIP tickets are also available. These tickets include: Admission to the post-concert reception and the marvelous opportunity to meet and mingle with Max Raabe and the orchestra and to enjoy a splendid dinner buffet with wine. VIP ticket holders will furthermore take home the CD set of the artist’s 2008 Carnegie Hall performance.
