Gone Too Soon
Phil Kott May 13, 1953 - November 21, 2011
John Willett June 16, 1950 - Sept 2, 2013
It is with great sadness that the Powerhouse Band announces the passing of trumpet/flute/lead vocalist John Willett, following a short but courageous battle with pancreatic and liver cancer.  John was the driving force behind the formation of the band in the mid 80’s and was the only member to be with the band from the start to his last show earlier this year.  We will miss John’s larger-than-life stage presence and the energy he brought to the band from his great love of performing music.  The band, understandably, will be taking some time off live performances while we grieve the loss of our good friend and brother.
