MAX RAABE & THE PALAAST ORCHESTER - New cd and 2014 US Tour Dates

I am a HUGE fan of Max Raabe and the Palast Orchester.  Max and his twelve piece band take you back to the 1920's in Germany to what is known as the Weimar era.  The songs Max sings are from the Great American Songbook and include such gems as "Singin' in the Rain" and "Cheek to Cheek."  Some of the songs Max sings are in English, others are sung in German.   But no matter what language they are in, they are simply magical.  It is hard to describe the joy that Max and the Orchester bring, but they mesmerize and entertain you and for a couple of hours you travel back in time to a much simpler time and place when the troubles of the world are far away.  But Max doesn't just stop at singing just the oldies, he also has fun by adding in his take on current pop hits like "Oops...I Did It Again."  It is an evening and an experience you'll never forget.

Max and the Orchester just started their 2014 US tour and his new cd "Golden Age" was just released on Deutsche Grammophon records.  I'll have a review of the new cd very soon, but I wanted to post the details for their tour as well as put up some links to order or listen to his cd.
