In the text comments an Aaron1912 just commented a musician who played in the band in the 1920s, a banjo player named Robert Degan just died at 104 years of age. Aaron1912 also mentioned that his death has just been announced at the New York Times website.
Anyone have any information on Robert Degan? I was amazed to learn a musician who played with the Scranton Sirens in the 1920's just died. Must not be too many 1920's musicians left. Sadly this one has left us.
