Frank Kurt Adolf Zander popularly known as Frank Zander is a German pop and Schlager musician, presenter, and actor. From the onset of his career, Zander’s distinctive trademark has been his rough voice, a result of untreated tonsillitis in the early 1970s. He was born on February 4, 1942, in Berlin-Neukölln.


Zander’s entry into the music business started in Berlin’s Neukölln neighborhood. He began his career as a guitarist and vocalist for the Gloomy Moon Singers, subsequently known as the Gloomys, after receiving training as a graphic artist. He started a solo career in the middle of the 1970s, becoming well-known for songs like “Oh, Susi (The Censored Song),” “I Drink to Your Well-Being, Marie,” and “The Great-Great-Grandson of Frankenstein.”

Over the years, he continued to release both original and cover songs, showcasing his versatility. Notable releases include “Da, da, da, I know about it, you know about it” (1982), a cover of Trio’s hit, and the parody “Jeannie (The Pure Truth)” (1986) based on Falco’s “Jeanny.”

In 1989, Zander founded Zett Records Production & Publishing GmbH, contributing to his involvement in the music industry beyond performing.

Zander debuted the charming and comical “Der kleine Finkenhahn,” with golden hamsters Fritz, Rudi, Walter, and Max, in 1978 while going with the alias Fred Sonnenschein.

Zander’s later works include albums like “Rabenschwarz” (2004), which humorously parodied popular hits in the style of Rammstein. In 2023, he released the single “Sommer in Berlin” with DJ Tomekk.

In August 2023, Zander announced the end of his singing career, making his final appearance as a singer in Schlagerolymp on August 11, 2023.

Apart from his musical career, Zander also pursued acting, hosting shows on television like “Plattenküche” and “Frankobella,” and making appearances in movies like “Neues vom Wixxer” (2007) and “Didi – The Subtenant” (1986) alongside Dieter Hallervorden.

Zander has demonstrated a strong social conscience by planning a Christmas feast for Berlin’s impoverished and homeless since 1995. For his efforts, he was awarded the Cross of Merit First Class of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany in 2022.
