unnamed (5)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 Rochellefrom the U.S. (now residing in Paris, France ), a versatile, charismatic and internationally-successful musical star and dancer. Austrians Franz Trattner on 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 beautiful Yanqi Lake .

So dig out your glad rags and dust off your dancing shoes in preparation for a swinging night at Yanqi Island! “Guests are encouraged to get in the mood with a 1930s dress code of glamour and sophistication,” says Brice Pean , General Manager of Sunrise Kempinski Hotel, Beijing & Yanqi Island. “The ladies might like to consider feather boas and a cute hat, while the gents need look no further than a white scarf and perhaps a silver-tipped cane,” he adds with a smile, but assures us that guests are not obliged to be so extravagant.
