Michael 'Air' Hofmann (born June 29, 1990 in Mainburg) is a professional drummer from Abensberg, Germany.
He first got in touch with drums through his friends from The Prosecution in 2003, and right from the start took professional drum lessons from Stephan Ebn (Gianna Nannini, Middle Of The Road, Lynn Anderson). By age 16 he has already made his own experiences as a drum teacher and almost simultaneously started playing live and recording with numerous bands along with his brother Robert Hubi Hofmann.
To complete his musical qualification he studied at Music College Regensburg from 2013-2016 (graduating summa cum laude in music education) taking drum lessons from Gerwin Eisenhauer, Michael 'Scotty' Gottwald and Alex Holzwarth. Since then he's working as professional drum teacher at different music schools, and as professional drummer having played over 500 shows (with The Prosecution, AntiPeeWee, Fuchsteufelswild, GumoManiacs, Radio Haze, TG Copperfield, Young Fast Running Man, Unbuttoned Heart, and many other Rock-, Metal-, and Coverbands) and on over 40 albums and TV/Cinema productions (for Konstantin Ferstl, Boris Kunz, Andreas Weidinger, Christoph Zirngibl...).
Working for the VPBy e.V. from 2011-2013 he gained a lot of know-how and a huge network in the music business which led to the employment as official representative for popular music in the district of Lower Bavaria in 2021, and furthermore as a booker/manager for many bands.
At Slash Zero Records he’s responsible for drum engineering and editing as well as customer acquisition.
