    The Randy Kohrs Band has suffered a devastating loss when the band van was broken into and nearly everything stolen out of it this weekend following a performance at the Musicians Against Childhood Cancer festival near Columbus, OH. The estimated amount of loss at this point looks to be around $50,000 - $60,000, but as the reality of it all sinks in, we're thinking of more stuff that was taken. It was stolen out of the Sleep Inn parking lot in Obetz, OH between 3:30am and 5:00am, estimated. This was probably the only time we've ever left our stuff in the van like that, and we only did so because we were going to be in the hotel only a short time before heading home. They ripped the lock completely out of the driver's side door to get in. Luckily, the banjo player, Mike Sumner, was riding with his girlfriend and has his banjo in her car instead. Considering they had their apartment broken into a few months ago, we're all thankful they weren't dealing with this again. Od
    dly enough, none of the drums or related gear were stolen.

    Here is the current list of missing items:
    Scheerhorn L-Body Resonator guitar #547
    Amistar Randy Kohrs Model tricone resonator
    Meredith all blonde, tongue-oiled maple resonator guitar
    Mike Long D-18 style acoustic guitar
    *All guitars had fishman pick-ups

    Custom Cedar Creek Case for the Meredith - black alligator, inside is purple, has "Custom Built for Randy Kohrs" plate
    Two white Calton Cases with Randy's name on them, both had red interiors
    Cedar Creek case for the acoustic Mike Long Guitar
    Forrest Craig (Texas-based luthier) Violin with L.R. Baggs pickup
    Strad copy violin, roughly 1880's, the tag inside not exactly accurate. Pictures can be seen on our website/pages.
    A double violin case, the attached strap doesn't match - it's maroon and gray with gold hardware.

    Upright acoustic King Bass, white with black trim, red tailpiece, rare

    2 Warwick 2 10" speaker cabinets


    Silver waterproof helicopter case with cables and a Shure wireless system

    3 Stage Ninja brand quarter inch cables

    Fishman Dreadnought Aura, Fishman resophonic Aura, Fishman Reverb, Fishman Chorus, Fishman Delay, Boosta Grande Boost pedal, 2 Radial DI's, Radial Tone Bone Pre-Amp, Hilton Optical volume pedal, 2 Peterson Strobe Stomp Tuners (one had Ashley B. written on the front of it in black marker)

    Tool Kit with extra cords and assorted tools.

    We don't want to discourage the thieves from attempting to sell anything as we'd love for them to be caught ASAP - the last thing we want is for the thieves to just throw them in a dumpster or ditch, never to be found. Feel free to pass this along to anyone you see fit. Please contact me if any of this is seen or you have any questions!
    Thanks so much!
