R.I.P. Solomon Kahn, DJ for the Golden State Warriors, 1977-2012
Kahn's most high-profile local work began in 1999, when he was hired by the Golden State Warriors to perform as the team's in-house DJ. Perched courtside, Kahn's selections provided the backdrop to more than a decade of home games. His work there got him noticed, and pretty soon he was performing similar duties at AT&T Park for the San Francisco Giants, one of the team's regular DJs.
Yet, for all his successes in music, Kahn was the kind of person that demanded the most from life. He was a passionate outdoorsman who was as comfortable on a snowboard or mountain bike as he was behind the decks.
Friends remember Kahn for his generosity and level-headed personality. "Solomon enjoyed every second of his life, which is one of the many reasons he was so infectious," says longtime friend Robbie Stauder. "But most importantly, Solomon was an incredibly loyal, compassionate, and genuine person and one felt that from him whether they first met him or knew him his whole life."
Kahn is survived by his parents, Tamam Kahn and Shabda Kahn; his brother Ammon Haggerty; and his fiance, Nicole Cronin.
