The ExtravaganzaLet the sun shine and your booty swing. We are honored to wrap the Mainkai Festival in gold as the final event of the series. The Electro Swing Collective takes the stage and brings back the time of prohibition for the biggest retro-tastic spectacle in town. We open our secret cabinet of curiosities for a glamorous world of gangsters, rapscallions, good-for-nothings, movie starlets and sex symbols. Pandora’s box opens, sounds of a long-forgotten time of black and white erupt and submerge in technicolor. Live instruments roar on stage while wild dancers move ecstatically to the jive. Mixing vintage and modern tunes, we create an exciting electro swing show. Unique, like you have never experienced before. Forming as the Electro Swing Collective, Hesses greatest electro swing dj Timcat consolidates with Merle and Tobias Rüger to enact the most embellished extravaganza when it comes to hosting a party. To the sound of live violin performances, you're gonna move your getaway sticks like there's no tomorrow. Enjoy the fusion of the reverberating saxophone to the music of the show. As if that weren’t enough, Guiseppina Galloro with her show dance skills and Enea Caccia from the world of swing will provide your entertainment throughout.
