Max Raabe

Max Raabe is a million-selling artist in his native Germany, and famed worldwide for his stylish renditions of songs first performed in clubs and films of the 1920’s and 30’s. An aficionado of the films of Fred Astaire, Max seeks out original arrangements of classic old songs and, along with the Palast Orchester, recreates them for modern-day audiences with a debonair, witty style uniquely his own.

Their music regularly tops European and International charts. The August 2018 album, Der perfekte Moment, included original songs written by Max and a team of composers and lyricists and reached Gold status.

Together for over 30 years, Max Raabe & Palast Orchester tour regularly to the US and Canada, playing famous venues such as New York’s Carnegie Hall, and they have played live concerts in China, Japan, Australia, Italy, Russia, Hungary, Poland, Holland, France, Scandinavia and the Baltics.

In 2020, HPL brought Max Raabe & Palast Orchester to these shores for their first major U.K. tour, including shows at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall and London’s Cadogan Hall.
