Benedikt Hesse – Drums

Georgi Petrov (USA) – Guitar
+ Producer & Special Guest
Is it an open-air summer party? You might think so, because that’s what the musicians from Cologne and New Orleans celebrate musically. The trio Hesse Körner Petrov (HKP) refines the funky frenchman street sound of New Orleans with relaxed latin vibes. Worldwide unique – with groove, fun and joie de vivre!
As drummer and bandleader Benedikt Hesse realizes his musical vision with „Hesse Koerner Petrov“ featuring Johnny Vidacovich and connects New Orleans (Funk) with Cuba (Latin).
Guitarist Georgi Petrov has quickly made a name for himself as a congenial sideman in the New Orleans music scene. Born in Bulgaria, he is a Summa cum Laude jazz performance graduate from the University of New Orleans.
Gero Körner is regarded throughout Germany as an exceptional keyboard talent who has been able to prove his skills as a sideman for such diverse artists as Max Mutzke, Ute Lemper or the two-time ESC winner Johnny Logan. Gero fulfils a double function in this band because he is also responsible for the bass with the Hammond B3. This legendary instrument shapes the sound of the band and provides an authentic musical experience.
10% of each album sold (physical or digital) goes to the New Orleans Musicians‘ Clinic.
