Since high-school, people called him “pink”. A long time ago, while he was studying, he started working in the music business (mainly as a promoter) in a small town, called Marburg. After he finished his studies (education science) in 2002 he decided to go on as promoter, instead of working as a pedagogue. In 2006 he stopped working as a local promoter and he established patchanka booking agency with a partner. He is 25 years in the music business.
Patchanka booking agency was established 2006 by 2 guys, who were working for a long time as local promoters in different venues in Germany, with the idea and spirit to do something new – which means to change the point of view in this part of the music business. Influenced by the sound of Mano Negra, they had a lot of French mestizo-ska-chanson-punk artist in their roster in the early years. Even though there are still a lot of French artist inside their roster, they are still very open minded. So there are a lot of different sounds & countries in the list of their bands. Such as Doctor Krapula from Colombia, Bears of Legend from Canada, Danidorchin from Israel, Golden Kanine from Sweden and First Breath After Coma from Portugal.
In the past 10 years, they did shows for bands, such as The Angelcy (isr), Chinese Man (f), Kiemsa (f) , Mardi gras.bb (ger), Les yeuxd’latete (f), Bongo botrako (esp), Dota (ger), Kaly live dub (f), Les ogres de barback (f), Les têtesraides (f), Skampida (col), Burning heads (f), Lucille crew (isr), Buriers (uk), Grim skunk (can), Pullup orchestra (ch), Karikatura (us), The Red Paintings (aus), Espanacircoeste (it) and many more.
They are currently based in Berlin.
