About Max Raabe

Leader of the Palast Orchester, Max Raabe was known for his adherence to a style long thought past, that of dance and film music of the '20s and '30s. With said orchestra, Raabe created his own style within that genre, incorporating modern tunes -- such as "Oops... I Did It Again" by Britney Spears -- into the retro sound of pre-World War II dancehalls. He also starred in a number of musical theater roles, including Threepenny Opera in 1999, which saw him share the stage with fellow German performer Nina Hagen. In 2008, the Palast Orchester released their well-received 2007 Carnegie Hall performance, entitled Huete Nacht Oder Nie. ~ Chris True
