Max Klaas was born in NRW, Germany in 1993. Max began taking drumming lessons, when he was six years old, but in 2005 he shifted to percussion and that is when Rhani Krija became not only his music coach but mentor. 

His first television performance was in 2006 at German TV show called TVTOTAL. At the age of 14, Max had already joined the WDR Big Band for three concerts. In 2008 Max became youngest member of National Jazz Orchestra, not long after he and the Orchestra were awarded the WDR Jazz Price. 

Many concerts to follow, including a three week tour in India. 

Max has been appearing, touring and sharing the stage with Mellow Mark, Volkan Bayder, Mohammed Rheda, Onita Boone, Henrik Freischlader, Peilomat, Sydney Youngblood, Ralph Valenteano, Andreas Bourani, Madcon, Schäl Sich Brass Band and many more.
