It is a real shame when something like this happens. We are passing along a message from good friends whose tour van was broken into over the weekend. If you know anything or hear anything please use the contact info at the end of this post. If you live in this area please spread the word to your local pawn and music stores.
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. It was stolen out of the Sleep Inn parking lot in Obetz, OH between 3:30am and 5:00am, estimated.
Here is the current list of missing items:
Scheerhorn L-Body Resonator guitar #547
Amistar Randy Kohrs Model tricone resonator

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!
