Event Description: Kurt Troutman, a professor at Muskegon Community College, presents: Clarence Zylman-Muskegon's Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy. Mr Zylman was the inspiration for the Andrew Sister's WW II classic song (written by Don Raye), Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B. Clarence was a lifelong Muskegon native (1906-1988) with a unique story to share. Born in Muskegon and trained on the streets of Chicago, he toured the country as a professional trumpeter helping to lead a musical revolution: Boogie-Woogie Swing dance music. Drafted into the Army, he served his country as a bugler. Playing reveille in his own boogie-woogie style, he became a military legend. Stars and Stripes, the London Times, Newsweek and over 30 newspapers promoted him as the buglers who got the troops up with a jitterbug in their step. Clarence Zylman was Muskegon’s Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy. Brought to you through the generosity of the Friends of Hackley Library.
