It is so often said that music makes all of us connected to one another. It makes us family. Days ago we unexpectedly lost a member of the Dayton, Ohio music family. Our good friend Karl Benge left us for another new adventure far too soon. And while we grieve for this loss, we come together to remember Karl and his contributions as a musician and a sound engineer.

In an effort to assist his family, members of the Dayton music community have organized a fantastic fundraising benefit show to help with the funeral expenses. The concert fundraiser will be held at the Oregon Express on May 16 from 9pm to 1:30am. The cost for this event is a $3 donation (although you can certainly contribute more if you wish). Do not miss this event! Information about where you can make a donation if you cannot attend will be shared soon.

All performers are donating their time to help raise money for Karl’s family. The lineup so far includes Tim Berger, Sharon A. Lane, Charles Hartman of OldNews, Brian Hoeflich, David Payne of The New Old-Fashioned, Paige Beller, Dip Spit, Todd T. Fox, a not to be missed reunited Orange Willard, and most appropriately the show will close with The White Soots performing without Karl.

The show this week will include music and memories of Karl Benge and in order to do justice to his memory – Tim Berger, Kyle Byrum, and Gretchen Reise Kelly will join us in studio discussing their friend Karl with all of us.

If you have a story that you wish to share — please email drjwudr@gmail.com or feel free to post it on our Facebook page. If you would like to share a remembrance during the show, please call 937-229-2774 between 3-6pm (e). Remember to hold onto one another during the challenging times. Life may hold pain, but life is not pain.

More information will also be posted on the event page for the fundraiser as it becomes available.
