About the founder Jürgen Hohmann:

“Variety” is probably what best describes the formula for success of TV and music producer Jürgen Hohmann. Not only does he produce various bands but he has also demonstrated an outstanding instinct when it comes to talents. He is considered as one of the co-discoverers of “Anastacia”, has also discovered bands like “4 The Cause” and “The Moffatts” and led them to international success. Furthermore he is one of the first to support the project “Rhythms del Mundo”.

Subsequent to his studies, Jürgen Hohmann went to EMI where he has already worked with national and international artists such as BAP, Howard Carpendale, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple or Queen. In 1987, right after working at EMI, Jürgen Hohmann founded the media consulting and production company MAXI MEDIA.

In the TV sector he started off with “Goldene Europa”, followed by several shows, for instance “Popkomm.Gala”, “Stars, die Aids-Gala”, “Pavarotti & Friends“, “IFA Night” or “Hitgiganten”. Since 2012 Maxi Media focus on documentaries of artists with an anniversary story and portrayed them. „Thank you for the Music – 40 years Abba“ and „25 years BAD – The phenomenon Michael Jackson“ were the first two productions in 2012. In 2013 the documentary section expanded with three releases per year („Stayin‘ Alive – 50 years Bee Gees“, „Jennifer Aniston – Hollywoods lonely dream woman“ und „We Are The Champions – 40 years Queen“; broadcasted by VOX) and in 2014 five productions were broadcasted („ABBA  – 40 years Waterloo“, „Simply The Best – 40 years Tina Turner“ and „The phenomenon Boygroups“, broadcasted by VOX, „60 years Rock & Pop“ and „30 years Modern Talking – The whole Truth“, broadcasted by RTL. 2015 started with a documentary of Elvis 80th birthday, presented by Andreas Gabalier and broadcasted by VOX.

Hits by artists like “Paul Anka” and “B3” and compilation CDs for the Maxi Media’s TV shows, such as the very successful “Hit Giganten”-series or a “Wetten, dass…?”-compilation, ensure that there is something to suit every taste.

Excellent international contacts enabled Maxi Media to establish artists all over Europe as well as on the American market. In 2010 Maxi Media published an Afro-American crossover production in the USA with the name “Vai DaCapo”. Accompanying the release, more than 70 American TV stations aired the band’s concerts.
