Konrad Conny Bauer (born 4th July, 1943 in Halle an der Saale) began to play guitar at 16 after his family had moved to the Thuringian town of Sonneberg in 1957. In various amateur dance bands he went on to also play trumpet, alto saxophone, drums and bass guitar, as well as singing, performing then current Schlager tunes. His first formal tuition came in 1962 under Hans Baake, learning trombone. Between 1964 and ’68 Conny Bauer studied trombone at the ‘Carl Maria von Weber’ college of music under Willi Baumgärtel and Alouis Bambula. In 1970 he continued his studies in Berlin under the tutelage of Gerhard Lemke. Since 1973 he has continued to explore and experiment with this instrument, continually developing new worlds of sound for himself and his audiences.
