Stand by for a night of rip-roaring fun on Friday 16 September 2016.Under the bright moon of the Mid-autumn Festival, Yanqi Hotel, managed by Kempinski, will present a dinner-dance extravaganza, featuring pulsating boogie, swing and jazz music themed to the swinging Beijing of the 1930s era.
The Shake the Lake Night will feature the original line-up and orchestration of the unique International Boogie Music Festival from Austria. It brings a highly-acclaimed ensemble of charismatic and outstanding musicians who have performed around the world.
Tinkling the keys of the two Feurich grand pianos are Richie Loidl and Johnny Schutten, both proponents and creators of the authentic Shake the Lake festival in Austria. They present their Austrian piano-friend Christoph “Boogie Wolf” Steinbach, an ingenious pianist and singer who can play “faster than his shadow.” Headlining the concert is Martin Schmitt from Munich, Germany, who is considered to be one of the most multitalented piano entertainers in Europe. “The voice” is represented by Nicolle Rochelle from the U.S. (now residing in Paris, France), a versatile, charismatic and internationally-successful musical star and dancer. Austrians Franz Trattneron drums and Peter Strutzenberger on double bass will support the show as a groovy rhythm section. After Friday the hotel will also invite those artists to join the Jazz & Boogie Brunch that follows at Waterside on 17 September. Pamper yourself with the superb gourmet brunch and enjoy the authentic live music while overlooking beautifulYanqi Lake.
