John Von Ohlen Benefit Campaign

Created April 17, 2018
Cincinnati is home to one of the great icons of Big Band Jazz - drummer John Von Ohlen.  As many of you may know, John has been dealing with medical issues that have resulted in some serious financial hardship.  This fundraiser is being put together by some of his friends and bandmates from the Flying Circus Big Band, a Monday night band he co-leads with trumpeter Scott Belck.

As John looks for a new place to live, the members of the Band are holding a benefit Birthday Concert at the Greenwich in Cincinnati with many guest artists and friends from around the country.

To purchase tickets to the April 30th concert ( 2 sets: 7:30 or 9:00) click on the link below.

I'm writing to thank everyone for their wonderful support for John Von Ohlen. Sadly, John passed away earlier this month, and this past weekend he was laid to rest by the pond on the farm where he lived for over 30 years. Your contributions made a HUGE difference for him during his last months, those funds allowed him access to a first class care facility that he would not have otherwise been able to afford. He had many loyal friends and fans visit him and he was comfortable and contented in a beautiful room with excellent care. Thanks to all of you for thinking of John and helping take part in his care.

Sincerely,
Scott

Hello Everyone,
we are doing well with our fundraiser for John Von Ohlen, but still a bit shy of our goal. Good news is that we have already completely sold out both shows with Jeff Hamilton and the Flying Circus Big Band on Monday - please share - we will keep this fundraiser open through next week. All proceeds go directly to VO!!
