Humpfrees owner Gerald Cruz, Sr, passes away in Ft Worth; presented A Train, Johnny Campbell, others to Shreve Square in 70's
Gerald Cruz, Sr. passed away tonight Tuesday, September 30, about 7 pm in Ft. Worth, Texas, with his family and friends beside him.
He loved bringing blues and jazz to Shreveport in the late 70's like Roosevelt Sykes, Room Full of Blues, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Delbert McClenton and so many others. It was probably one of the happiest times in his life."
Thanks to Marcie Cruz, too, for the historic photo above and several more from the 70's.
