Max Raabe & Palast Orchester

"A wised-up adult choirboy with a slightly seductive glint in his eye." - The New York Times

A sight to behold, Raabe and his big band — decked out in tails - deliver impeccable hits from the 1920s and early '30s, but aren't above tweaking modern tunes in a retro style. Walking a narrow line between sublime musicality and madcap kitsch, German vocalist Max Raabe is a conservatory-trained baritone besotted with the Weimar-era sound. Fresh off a sold-out Carnegie Hall concert, this incredible band offers a delightful and devilishly catchy night of cabaret at Oakland's own Art Deco masterpiece, the Paramount Theatre.
