“On Air with Doc Severinsen” features The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson band leader and trumpeter, Doc Severinsen in concert with the Pensacola Civic Band at the Pensacola Saenger Theatre on Saturday evening, 7:30 p.m., November 10, 2018.
Doc will be joined by trumpeter Cathy Leach in a program featuring several selections from his musical repertoire of jazz and television tunes. Today, Doc has not lost his flair for the outrageous fashion statement or his trademark wit. But his gregarious nature has never interfered with the fact that he has been one of the greatest trumpeters and musicians of the last 60 years, respected in the worlds of classical music, jazz, big band, and now even world music. In the end, Doc Severinsen has transcended his celebrity, and rejoiced in his remarkable ability to simply play his trumpet as well as he can. Which has proven to be good enough for the millions of people who count themselves his fans.
In addition, the Pensacola Civic Band will perform many familiar television theme songs from the Fifties until today in a rollicking concert that you won’t want to miss.
Tickets are $10 reserved seating. Tickets may be purchased online at Ticketmaster or at the Saenger Theatre.
