Max Raabe und Palast Orchester

I recently discovered Max Raabe und Palast Orchester. Max Raabe is a German singer with a sweet and dreamy voice that will transport you back to the 20s and 30s. The sounds and music of the Germany of the time... And, he's quite one dapper gentleman too...

Here are some of my favorites:

"Küssen kann man nicht alleine"

"Klonen kann sich lohnen"

Max Raabe singing "J'attendrai" - my favorite tune - very sweet and melancholic.... followed by the upbeat "Schöne Isabella von Kastilien".

Here's another one: "Dream a little Dream"....

And another one: "Hallo, was machst du heut Daisy"  - this one comes with a cabaret performance

YouTube plays his top music here. Max Raabe does a worldwide tour too. Check out his schedule here. I can't wait until he comes here in April 2013 to San Fran!!



Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I hope you celebrated well and wisely last night :) We went to the USS Hornet's NYE celebration. Lots of swing dancing (and other ballroom dancings) - Wonderful!

Our outfits came out color-coordinated! My blue dress matches Marcel's blue shirt - and my brown coat matches Marcel's jacket.

We dressed up warm -- and in layers -- as we had been warned that it would be quite chilly in the hangar. Hence, I chose an ankle length dress with sleeves and long coat. And for Marcel, a jacket with vest underneath.

Obviously this was us after a bit of dancing - warmed up quite a bit.

Another pose --- this was in between break  -- in some red light corner :)

Here's the crowd taking a cha cha cha dance lesson...

And the real dancing...

WE HAD FUN! (Us - flustered after all the dancing)

2012 was a great year and we're looking forward to even a greater year in 2013! All of our best wishes to you!
