Iconic trumpeter and legendary The Tonight Show bandleader, Doc Severinsen, will return to Rochester Wednesday, April 17 performing with the new, Sonic Era Jazz Orchestra, conducted by Jeff Tyzik.

Doc Severinsen last performed in Rochester with Jeff Tyzik in 2016. Now in his 91st year, Severinsen remains one of the greatest trumpeters and musicians of his time, respected in the worlds of classical music, jazz, big band, and now even world music. 

The concert will celebrate the long-standing collaboration of Severinsen and Tyzik, one of America's most innovative and sought after pops conductors, who has orchestrated many of the great band leader’s symphony orchestra programs and produced the GRAMMY Award-winning album "The Tonight Show Band with Doc Severinsen, Vol. 1." Tyzik's subsequent recordings with Severinsen garnered three more GRAMMY nominations.

“I'm extremely excited to present Doc Severinsen in conjunction with Jazz 90.1 WGMC,” said Stabnau, producer and founder of Sonic Era. “Having grown up hearing his music it's been a dream of mine to bring him to Rochester to perform with the big band sound, for which he is known. He is a jazz legend and an incredible entertainer.”

“Jazz90.1 is honored to be a part of such an amazing concert, and we are grateful to be able to present Doc Severinsen and this wonderful orchestra to Rochester music fans,” said Jazz90.1 Station Manager Rob Linton. “As Jazz90.1 celebrates our 45th anniversary this year, we remain committed to presenting amazing live jazz to our listeners and members. To have a legend like Mr. Severinsen perform is truly a dream come true for us.”
