South Motors Jazz at Pinecrest Gardens presents: Doc Severinsen & The New World School of the Arts Jazz Band. “Heeeeeeeere’s Johnny!” That lead-in followed by a big band trumpet blast, was the landmark of late night television for three decades. The “Johnny” was Johnny Carson, the announcer was Ed McMahon and the bandleader was the great Doc Severinsen. A Grammy award winner, Doc has made more than 30 albums—from big band to jazz-fusion to classical. 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 in the end, has transcended his celebrity and rejoiced in his remarkable ability to simply play his trumpet! Gates open at 6:30 p.m., concert begins at 8:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased through the web page or by calling 1-877-496-8499.
