The Extravaganza

Let the sun shine and your booty swing. On Saturday, the Wilhelmstraßenfest in Wiesbaden will be covered in gold. 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 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. As if that weren't enough, Annalena Storch with her show dance skills and Guiseppina Galloro from the world of swing will provide your entertainment throughout.   Golden Twenties Logo

The Electro Swing Collective

[caption id="attachment_5154" align="aligncenter" width="1024"]image of electro swing dj timcat Timcat fusions melodies and sounds of the swing-era with todays modern beats. Just the best that Electro Swing has to offer, with a mix of saxophone-based EDM for the perfect flair. Only the finest music gets served on the turntables to satisfy your hunger for good music. Doesn’t matter if you dance Lindy Hop, Charleston or Shenanigans. Just indulge yourself. He mixes up to three tracks at the same time live with no prepared sets. Everything’s in the moment to feel the pulsating need of the crowd, until the beat drops and everyone loses their minds. 🎧🐈‍⬛[/caption]
