The Ragtime Nightmare are a young international Berlin-based string and horn band that specialises in rearranging the hot and esoteric music of the 1910s/20s/30s into new and exciting forms. Mixing western-swing twin fiddles with a New Orleans jazz band, these boys channel the excitement and variety of the 78rpm era. The Ragtime Nightmare have played for large swing dance and jazz festivals such as the Altitude Jazz Festival and the Berlin Balboa Weekend, and they’re proud members of the Berlin artists collective The Syncopation Society.
