Paul Baumer, one-half of the act Bingo Players, passed away last night after a more-than-six-month battle with cancer.
Fellow Bingo Player and friend Maarten Hoogstraten announced the sad news today via Facebook:
I’m deeply saddened to tell you that Paul passed away last night after his battle with cancer. He fought strongly until the end.
We want to thank you all for your support over the past few last months.
Needless to say, all upcoming shows for the rest of this year have been cancelled as we’re going through this loss with family and friends. We’ll post a longer update shortly with more information as well.
Paul, we will miss you.
Although there’s nothing that can be said to ease the pain of losing a person as loved as Baumer was, we wish his family and friends our absolute best in the wake of this tragedy. Thank you for all the amazing times and music, Paul.
When more information is available, we’ll update you. RIP.
