A benefit for the family of the late John Kohn, a local musician and Norfolk police recruit who died following a series of training incidents in December, will be held Saturday — not Sunday.
The benefit is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. and last until after midnight. It will be held at Shaka’s Restaurant and Nightclub, 2014 Atlantic Ave, Virginia Beach, Va. Cover is $10. Donations are welcome.
Several musicians who have played with John over the years are scheduled to perform in John’s memory. The lineup includes Superock, Nature’s Child, Paper Mountain, Jesse Chong, the Jay Rakes Band, and Vintage.
John is survived by his wife Sarah and a daughter, Sarah, who is on the way, according to an announcement about the benefit. All proceeds go to John’s family.
For those who have followed the circumstances surrounding John’s death, you know the NPD’s handling of information has been, to be charitable, mind-boggling.
But that’s just a sideshow compared to the life John led as a musician and music-lover, in service to his country and, more recently, in his effort to join the men and women protecting the city of Norfolk..
