Doc Severinsen performs in Rochester with Sonic Era Jazz Orchestra

Local News
Iconic Trumpeter and Tonight Show bandleader, Doc Severinsen, returned to Rochester Wednesday night to perform with the new Sonic Era Jazz Orchestra.
 
The concert celebrated the long-standing collaboration of Severinsen and Jeff Tyzik, who he performed with in 2016. The concert also marks the debut of the new 16-member Sonic Era Jazz Orchestra.
 
Karl Stabnau, the Managing Director for Sonic Era, said Wednesday’s performance gave Doc Severinsen a chance to get back to his roots.

“One of the things you know we’ve talked about with Doc is he’s done a lot of performances over the last couple years and he doesn’t get a chance to play his Tonight Show music which is what he is known for. His big band style playing in the orchestra you know playing with a lot of those great old bands and he was particularly excited to play with a band of this caliber which he hasn’t done in years,” said Stabnau.
 
Proceeds from the concert benefit Jazz 90.1 which is a non-profit public jazz radio station here in Rochester.
