Based in the wild nocturnal city of Berlin, The Ragtime Nightmare (featuring members from Australia, Russia, France, Spain and Germany) have fuelled stomping dance parties with their distinctive brand of red hot jazz, grinding blues and bouncing ragtime for over 5 years. Inspired by such reed-led bands created by Jimmie Noone, the earthy melody of Bunk Johnson and the delicate hot strings of Eddie Lang, The Ragtime Nightmare are well known for their tasteful and unique approach to the forgotten repertoire of early American music. They’ve toured across Europe and have played at such festivals as Rapperswil BluesNJazz (CH), Classic Jazz Concert Club (NL), Anger’s Festival Jazz à l’Heure d’Eté (FR) and Fest Jazz (FR) to great acclaim.
