Hans-peter Krohn


Hans-Peter Krohn is a trained photographer, but music played an essential role throughout his life. After great success in the beginning of the 70s, together with flautist and multi-instrumentalist Stephan Micus, plus an extended stay in America, Hans-Peter entered the then hip Munich live club scene. Performing at legendery clubs like, “Song Parnass, Marienkäfer, Domicile, Rigan Club, Alabamahalle”, etc with bands such as: Hurricane, Stoney Creek, Bandys, Paul Wyett Band, Puder Band, and many others, he started recording his own material as well as playing as a guest musician for other artists. In the 80s / 90s, H.P. Krohn performed hundreds of concerts in the permanent ensemble of the legendary rock-n- roller Richard Rigan, while also gigging with the Munich cult band COMBO (album "The Beat Meets the Streets") From 1987 to 2010 he ran his own club band, “MIDNIGHTWALKERS”, in various sizes and line-ups. In addition to guest appearances with Willy Michl, Abi Ofarim, and Mel Canady (Chessboard), H.P. spent years as MD / composer and arranger with entertainer Ron Williams. Between 2007 and 2016, Hans-Peter Krohn worked closely with the Munich cabaret artist and author, Moses Wolff. With countless live performances (duo and band), the CD "Perlen vor die Säue", along with the accompanying stage show (MD, composition and producer) were released in 2007. Hans-Peter appeared as composer and guitarist, live on stage, for Wolff's second stage program "In My Own Apartment" (2016-2017). In 2010, Hans-Peter Krohn decided to put all of his musical experience over the decades into practice in his own project, “The Krohn Band”, with his own texts and compositions. The first album, "Traveler In Between", which received great reviews from experts, was created in 2012. In November of 2019, the Munich Krohn Band was back in the studio for the production of their second album, "The Missing Link". You can look forward to more in the future!!!!!
