"Heeeeere's Johnny! That lead-in, followed by a big band trumpet blast, was the landmark of the late night TV for three decades. Trumpeter Doc Serverinsen is perhaps the most iconic band leader from the golden age of television as Johnny Carson's leader of the "Tonight Show Band." Named after his best-selling recording, this concert features Doc's 17-piece band and the amazing vocalist, Vanessa Thomas performing "When You're Smiling" and "Singing in the Rain". Doc still brings his trademark wit and has not lost his flair for the outrageous fashion statement. The Lincoln Journal Star proclaimed, "Amazingly, Serverinsen proves that he still has the lip and the technique to play with power, precision and stamina... (His) playing and bandleading certainly quashes any doubts that at 84 he might have lost some of his famous panache".

Tickets: $12 - $49.00
