Doc Severinsen Showing No Signs of Stopping

Posted on April 16, 2016 by Dave - Carson Entertainment Group | 1 comment

“Heeere’s Johnny,” followed by a big band trumpet blast was the landmark of late night TV for decades. The "Johnny" was naturally Johnny Carson and the band leader was Doc Severinsen. But Doc never stopped after The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson went off the air in 1992 and Doc is still going strong and showing no signs of stopping. Doc is playing tonight with the Nebraska Jazz Orchestra, 7:30 p.m. Saturday, at the Lied Center for Performing Arts in Lincoln, NE. Severinsen helps NJO celebrate its 40th anniversary with swinging standards like “In a Sentimental Mood,” “Singing in the Rain,” “Georgia on My Mind,” "The Tonight Show" theme, and many more. Here's a link to the event if you're lucky enough to be in the area tonight.

    It would be fun to see him perform! I would love to hear more stories of Johnny. Unfortunately I wasn’t around when he performed.
