Raised in Oregon, Doc was raised by his mother and father, who used to be a dentist and an amateur violinist. His father wanted Doc to learn violin from a early age, but Doc’s interest in the trumpet became so strong that he was already performing in public before he was twelve years old, and in that year he won the Music Educator’s National Contest. Even before leaving high school, he was hired by the Ted Fio Rito Orchestra, one of the most popular orchestras at the time. However, Doc’s career came to a halt as he was drafted for World War II during which he served in the US Army. Following the end of war, he again pursued his music career, and joined NBC-TV’s show “Tonight” when Steve Allen used to host the show. Later, he joined NBC’s “The Tonight Show”, and this was a pivotal point in Severinsen’s career, as he then became the band leader and his net worth also began to rise.

Doc became more popular as a trumpeter after he joined “The Tonight Show”. As a part of the program, he played swing and jazz music including compositions by popular artists Cole Porter and Dizzy Gillespie. Doc is better recognized for his flashy fashion during the show, and his ability to add relatable music in different situations during the show. He has also recorded more than thirty albums under the band name “The Tonight Show Band with Doc Severinsen”. His orchestra was later re-named as “Doc Severinsen and The Tonight Show Band”. All of these ventures have been very significant in adding to Doc’s net worth over the span of his career as a trumpeter.

Regarding his personal life, 89 years-old Doc has married three times. His third wife is Emily Marshall who used to be a secretary of “The Tonight Show” producer Fred de Cordova; he was previopusly married to Evonne Nyman from 1964-76. Severinsen is the father of five children and a grandfather of eight. As for his hobbies, Doc likes to collect American art and cooking. He also helps design new trumpets for the S.E Shires Company. For now, he enjoys his career as an accomplished musician while his net worth of $20 million caters to his and his family’s daily lives.

1I was playing in Kansas City [in 1974]. We [with future third wife Emily Marshall] got into a tremendous fight in the hotel room. I mean, it was a battle. Emily was throwing things and screaming. In the midst of this knock-down-drag-out, there was a tap on the door, which we ignored. Then, a piece of paper slid under the door." "I kept hearing this fluttering sound," says Emily, "so I looked at the note. It said, 'We would like to see Mr. Severinsen and have his autograph.' A group of sorority girls was standing outside." "So I stopped the argument," says Doc, "opened the door and smiled politely. I had a nice chat with these people, signed a few autographs and closed the door. Then bam! back to the yelling and screaming.
