HANS

Rehmstedt studied violin at the Berlin Academy of Music in the early 1930s.

After graduating he played in Berlin dance orchestras.

He formed his own dance orchestra, which played at Café Uhlandeck.

By 1938 his orchestra had grown to eleven musicians and became the house band of the Berlin Eden Hotel.

In 1940 Rehmstedt founded a smaller formation ( Hans Rehmstedt and his soloists ), but continued to make studio recordings with a big band.

Rehmstedt’s recordings were released under the Electrola and Columbia record labels.

His singers included Rudi Dreyer, Henriette Schäffler, Peter Igelhoff, Rudi Schuricke and Horst Winter.

His most famous recording was made in 1938 “The Lambeth Walk”.

After 1945, Rehmstedt was orchestra conductor at Radio Bremen. He was killed in a car accident in Hanover in the mid-1950s.
