In October 1962, The Tonight Show changed late night T.V. and for three decades, Legendary trumpet player Doc Severinsen and his big band was a staple of this late night television institution. On May 22, 1992, it came to an end...
Never slowing down for a minute, Doc travels constantly to perform and conduct with ensembles ranging from symphonic orchestras to jazz bands. Still wearing outfits that are only slightly less brassy than his horn, he is Principal Pops Conductor of the Minnesota Orchestra, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra. Doc continues to practice three to four hours daily…"just to warm up."
A Grammy winner, Doc has made more than 30 albums--from big band to jazz-fusion to classical.
Doc recently created is own company that produces a once-in-a-lifetime horn—the Destino trumpet by Severinsen Custom Trumpets. The Destino is hand made using old-fashioned, craftsman techniques. It is made for trumpet players by trumpet players. The gold plated Destino from Severinsen Custom Trumpets is available only from Doc’s new website: www.docseverinsen.com
