The Extravaganza

Walpurgis Night in retroesque glamour and chic elegance of the grande Golden Twenties.

Welcome to the greatest themed party in town at the most noble venue of your choice. It’s time to take your yearly bath in champagne and celebrate the arrival of May. ‘A Little Party Never Killed Nobody’, so dress yourself up like Gatsby and dance like Fred Astaire. Don’t be a dewdropper. Be a do-hopper. Because the last day of April counts double.

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 great Golden Twenties 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. Be mesmerized by projected vintage videos in black and white, which were forgotten long ago and resurfaced from eerie old archives. As if that weren’t enough, Annalena Storch with her show dance skills and Guiseppina Galloro with her introduction to the world of swing dance steps will provide your entertainment throughout.

The Electro Swing Collective

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. 🎧🐈‍⬛

Merle from the Swing Bohème Orchestra will support us with live violin performances. For years they were a member of the chamber philharmonic orchestra Rhein-Neckar, exceeding in their joy for mastering the instrument. Now they live up to electronic music, having it tête-à-tête with Gypsy Jazz and Electro Swing. 🎻🦜

Tobias Rüger from the german jazz band „Die Schwindler“ is supporting us with live saxophone performances. Dedicated to master the most saxy instrument of them all, he was traveling for the Goethe Institut and working as musical director for Frankfurter Kammeroper and Schauspiel Frankfurt. He fusions his sound to the music, reverberating in fabulous elegance and climaxing to the sound of the Roaring Twenties. 🎷🦤

Giuseppina Galloro is a primeval rock of swing dance. She incarnates bygone vigor and vintage elegance with her retroescic fable since 2014. Her specialization in Lindy Hop, Charleston, Solo Jazz, Tap Dance, Balboa, Shag and Peabody shines bright on stage for a great variety of stunts. 💃🏻🕺🏿
