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.
Hackley Public Library on the corner of 3rd and Webster
