Henning Pertiet Short Info

Henning Pertiet, born in 1965 in Hamburg, is today one of the most expressive Blues & Boogie Woogie-Pianists in Europe.
At the age of 23 he discovered the Boogie-Piano for himself: It was a record of Axel Zwingenberger that carried him off his feet, so he did everything to become a Boogie-Pianist himself.

With contact to the Hamburg music scene and the local artists Axel Zwingenberger, Joja Wendt and Gottfried Boettger (who is one of his uncles by the way!) he had the best framework to learn the basics of this music directly from the people he admired.

Very soon his fingers did what he wanted and many concerts all over Europe followed.
Henning either played piano solo or with drum and vocals.

By recommendation of Axel Zwingenberger Henning joined the Mojo Blues Band from Vienna in 1993.
It is one of the best and most well known authentic blues bands of Europe. In the summer of the same year he became an integral part of this formation and he started touring Europe for 4 years as a band piano player.

By playing with the Mojos Hennings style matured, his blues repertoire widened and he decided to publish his first solo album in 1996.
A way that he started in 1996 and still goes today, nevertheless always playing as an accompanist for other musicians.
Up to now he has played many hundred concerts in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, Belgium or Holland together with Axel Zwingenberger, Vince Weber, Abi Wallenstein, Henry Heggen, Michael Maass, Jeanne Carroll, Jan Harrington, Little Willie Littlefield, Frank Muschalle, Tibor Grasser, B.B. & The Bluesshacks and many more.
He has spent many hundred hours in front of his record and CD player and he has made many personal experiences that he incorporates easily into his music.

Nourished by these impressions as well Henning nowadays tells stories with his music that nobody else is able to tell in the same way. His music is expressive in a way that can not be imitated: not searching for effects and without any needless acrobatics. The audience rather experiences an authentic presentation of old blues and boogie classics as well as many personal compositions that are strongly influenced by Hennings personality and which capture anybody who allows to be taken away into the world of blues and boogie.
