R.I.P. Solomon Kahn, DJ for the Golden State Warriors, 1977-2012

Categories: News, R.I.P.

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.

Friends of Solomon and Nicole have set up a website to help them financially.  Here's the link: https://www.wepay.com/donation...

You can donate as much/little as you want, and it can be done anonymously. I know that this is not the most trustworthy way of asking for support, but if you visit the link you will recognize some of their friends' names.  There's also a long list of condolences/comments.

Thank you.

RIP, I remember DJ S when going to Warriors games and thinking, he's pretty freaking good DJ!

Again, condolences to family and friends, deeply saddened by this.

This sucks! Aww Sol! Knew him well, been a couple years. But not that many. From the Nick/Robbie/Robin/Nanhoi crew/part of his life. If  any of you are reading this- see you all soon. Since freshman year at M.A til- relatively recently. I just found out the terrible news from Robin. He was a great guy- had not seen him in  way too long. He was so humble-  especially for someone who had as many followers as he did. I loved that he never got that "Im famous", Vibe. In fact- quite the opposite. He really was an amazing person. I remember going snowboarding my first time with him, and going to way to fast on mountain bikes down Mt. Tam with him.  And of course dancing to his  amazing grooves, countless times. Though I never met most of his Family and fiance, My deepest condolences. I will Truly miss you brother.Blaise

Solomon was my nephew and an incredibly awesome being of light that reflected the bestof possibilities. He embodied love to the deepest level, commitment and integrityin all that he set out to do. His love for his partner Nicole was extraordinary!I pray that how he  left his mark on this life, is that all of you that have been touchedby his music, his presence, will remember and continue on with that light.
