Within a week of his final telecast on The Tonight Show, Doc Severinsen and his Big Band were on the road. To this day, audiences across America love and respect Doc, not just because he shared their living room with them for so many years, but also because of Doc’s love of the Big Band repertoire.
His musicianship keeps this iconic American music fresh with a repertoire that includes Ellington and Basie standards, pop, jazz, ballads, big band classics, and, of course, The Tonight Show theme.
Severinsen’s unmatched abilities are a testament to his continued commitment to the refinement of his craft. As a band leader, Doc continues to surround himself with the very best in the musical world.
The Oklahoma City Jazz Orchestra, under the direction of John Allen, will be joining Doc on stage for this premier, one-of-a-kind performance.
