Swing, jive, boogie, rockabilly and old time jazz. Open Air.
Lenard Streicher Band
When the 5 gentlemen in the best age and noble thread enter the stage, no eye remains dry, no leg still, no guest untouched. In their "second living room" - the Yorckschlösschen in Berlin - Lenard Streicher & Band have been playing regularly 1-2 times a month for 12 years and enjoy an ever-growing fan base. With their dynamic mix of their own and classic rock'n'roll, boogie, jump and jive and rockabilly tunes, they never fail to thrill the audience. Within a very short time, the musicians transform every performance venue into a wild dance party. Charmingly and skillfully, the neo-crooner and passionate entertainer Lenard Streicher incorporates reminiscences of his idols Dean Martin and Elvis Presley into the ongoing program. In this way he uniquely combines music, conference, dance & comedy. The Lenard Streicher Band has released 5 CDs to date. Most recently, the studio CD "Rockin' Chair Sessions" with new interpretations of well-known classics was released in the summer of 2018. http://www.lenardstreicher.de/

The Time Rag Department from Berlin brings back the hot repertoire of the Early Jazz era. With rousing devotion, the musicians dedicate themselves to the tradition of old time jazz in all its facets: detailed and changeful, inspired by the sound of Paul Whiteman and Duke Ellington Orchestra, or untamed emotional, inspired by the sound of New Orleans Jazz Bunk Johnson or Sidney Bechet. In addition to numerous nationwide and international performances (e.g. for radioeins from RBB, Die Linke Thüringen, Deutsches Nationaltheater Weimar, German Embassy in Prague, Music Festival Jelling Cirque du Solo or Swing Busters Prague), the Time Rag Department has been performing in Berlin at least twice a week for the past five years - for swing dancing in the large, atmospheric ballroom of Villa Neukölln, and for listening in the densely packed traditional Speiche`s rock and blues pub in Prenzlauer Berg. https://timerag.de/
Featuring Sofiane Atta (soprano saxophone, clarinet & vocals), Christoph Klan (clarinet, alto sax & vocals), Anton Wunderlich (trombone, piano & vocals), Quentin Bardinet (banjo & vocals), Maximilian Keitel (guitar), Matthieu Baud (double bass)
