The Museum der Arbeit and its neighbours in the square will be holding the sixth joint Hoffest on Bert-Kaempfert-Platz on Saturday, 9 August 2014.

The musical highlight of the summer festival is scheduled for 7 p.m.: the Berlin Jazz Orchestra. They are preceded by Shreveport Rhythm, a Hamburg jazz combo, who will be playing from 5 o’clock onwards.

The Berlin Jazz Orchestra was founded by Marc Secara 14 years ago. Under the artistic direction of the American star trombonist and band leader Jiggs Whigham this orchestra has earned an awesome reputation and today is known for its first-class big band sound. Shreveport Rhythm is considered by many to be one of the best jazz and swing bands in North Germany.
