Doc Severinsen Big Band

Sumter Opera House presents Doc Severinsen and his Big Band on Sunday, September 13 at 3:00 pm. A high-note trumpeter and sideman to Tommy Dorsey and Benny Goodman, Severinsen was Johnny Carson’s “Tonight Show” band director for 30 years. This Grammy award winner is known for his musicianship, outrageous fashion statements, and trademark wit. He’ll play songs from his impressive repertoire, which includes Ellington and Basie standards, pop, jazz, ballads, big band classics and, of course, the “Tonight Show” theme. The Sumter Opera House is located at 21 North Main Street in downtown Sumter, SC.
