De Hohner

De Höhner (Kölsch for The Chickens, pronounced [də ˈhøˑnɐ] ( listen), German: [də ˈhøːnɐ]), sometimes [də ˈhœːnɐ]) is a band from Cologne, Germany. They sing in the local dialect of Cologne, Kölsch.

The group was founded in 1972 by Peter Werner and Janus Fröhlich. During their first year, the band wore chicken costumes, and threw real feathers into the audience.

They are particularly successful in the area around Cologne, although they are popular nationwide. The band is famous for performing at the Cologne carnival. Their most popular carnival songs are "Echte Fründe", "Pizza wunderbar", "Die Karawane zieht weiter" and "Viva Colonia".

Their song "Wenn nicht jetzt, wann dann?" (If not now, then when?) reached number one in Germany in February 2007.  They performed it during the 2007 World Men's Handball Championship finals, held in Cologne.

Their album Da Simmer Dabei! Die Grössten Partyhits was on the German top 50 albums chart for 8 weeks in 2007, peaking at number 9. The title is a reference to the chorus of the song "Viva Colonia".
