Treasure Chest Thursday - Promo Photo Eugene Krugman

One of my favorite treasures is this promotional photo of Eugene "Gene" Krugman.  Gene was an accomplished musician who played with several big name bands in the days of the big band.  I had mentioned him in a post on a message list a few years ago and a kind reader was an angel and sent this to me.  I am in contact with another person who is not related but is in possession of a few of Gene's instruments. Gene is a second cousin to Mr. Brown Eyes.  The photo is in perfect condition and is truly one of our treasures!

Hi Pam!
According to what I found and what his obit states he played bass and I believe the clarinet. He also did some singing.
Thanks for posting!
