New Website, New Show
Welcome to our new website!
Max Raabe has written a new album together with German “pop specialists” like Annette Humpe and Peter Plate: “Der perfekte Moment .. wird heut verpennt” (literally: sleeping through the perfect moment).
More on that on Friday...
“Der perfekte Moment .. wird heut verpennt” is also the title of our new German program 2018. Almost naturally the fine irony of the 20s / 30s repertoire merges with the dry humor of the new “Raabe-pop-songs”.
From Wednesday 27.9.17, 10am, all our German concert dates will be posted on this new website and tickets will be on sale exclusively. From Friday, 29.9.17, 10am, our concerts will be on sale at all ticket offices.
We are looking forward to many perfect moments with you!

Vincent Riewe, since 1990 our friend and drummer, succumbed to his illness on 21.03.2017. His wife and three daughters are like family to us. With them we feel deep sorrow and disbelief.
Vincent´s personality and team spirit influenced our orchestra. On stage he had all eyes on him - through his way of playing and through his radiant smile.
How we will miss him!
