Flying in from the UK, we are totally spaz’n to have Electro Swing Club founder, Max Pashm, in the Ballroom this Friday. That’s right, our favourite prohibition swing party with a contemporary edge is about to get edgier, with Max Pashm and Toronto talent Tia Brazda swinging down the house with Electro Swing beats, live bands, visuals, burlesque and vintage dress code in effect.
Max Pashm first rose to fame in 1997 as one of the early pioneers of dance & electronic world fusion music. He was signed to Sony Music in 1997 and the single ‘Queen of Sikim’ taken from his debut album, was a worldwide hit and reached the top of the charts in many European countries.
The ‘Max Pashm’ sound is a unique blend of Electro Swing, Balkan Beats, Klezmer and Gypsy Electronica with blistering club beats. A daring and perfect marriage fusing the old traditions with the new and cutting edge sounds of today and the future.
Max’s live shows are infamous, combining uplifting live percussion, vocal and keyboards with beat mixing and general showmanship and sense of humor and fun on stage. His DJ sets are equally energizing and unique, spining mixes that no one has heard before, as well as his own tunes and classic tracks by other artists.
Party like prohibition is ending this Friday with Max Pashm and Electro Swing Club 10pm in the Ballroom. Oh, and don’t forget to dress up!
