Konrad Bauer was born in Sonneberg in Thuringia, Germany.

He learned self-educated to play guitar and piano. After leaving school with A-levels he tried to play his music in several bands and got his nickname "Conny" by his friends. Soon he recognized that he did not know enough about music to become a real professional musician. That's why he studied modern dance music from 1964 until 1968 at "Carl Maria von Weber-Conservatory" in Dresden. Because too many students want to study guitar he bethought his practical experiences with playing trombone and entered the trombone-class. In 1968 he left the conservatory for Berlin to improve his skills with private lessons. From 1969 until 1971 he started his career as guitarist and singer in the band of Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky.

In 1986 Conny Bauer toured Japan for several weeks encountering numerous Japanese musicians. From 1988 until 1989 he directed the National Jazz Orchestra of the former GDR.
