Services for Julian C. Cohen, who was a band leader in Baltimore before starting a scrap metal business in Bladensburg, will be held at 1 p.m. today at the Washington Hebrew Congregation.
Mr. Cohen, who was 75, died Thursday of complications from Parkinson's disease at his home in Chevy Chase.
He retired in 1973 as president of the Julian C. Cohen Salvage Corp., which he started in 1942.
In the 1930s, he was pianist and the leader of the Ramblers, a band that played in dance halls and for private social gatherings and could be heard on radio in the Baltimore area.
Born in Baltimore, he was a graduate of the Polytechnic Institute. He studied engineering at the Johns Hopkins University and music at the Peabody conservatory.
