    I was at the show at the Palladfium in Carmel,Indiana the other night. Doc can still blow with the best. We thought Vanessa was going to shatter some glass with her high notes and Stockton on Sing, Sing, Sing put Buddy Rich to shame. Great, high energy show.

    Doc’s singer is not just fantastic, she’s absolutely incredible. I’d like to see her on America’s Got Talent.

    I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the Dallas show. i don’t have the words to express properly the experience! As a longtime Doc fan, this was my first attendance at a live show. Doc is awesome, to say the least! he has surrounded himself with a group of musicians second to none,especially Ernie Watts and Vanessa Thomas. What an outstanding show! Thank you for a wonderful experience, and hope there’s many more!

    My husband, 3 year old son and I saw you perform at the Dakota Jazz Clum in Minneapolis, MN! What an amazing night!! We stayed for both performances and it was electric. Doc is a gentleman, loved his stories & lights up the night. I hope you know how much I miss seeing you on The Tonight Show every night!!

    The show in Omaha was GREAT! Everyone I talked to coming out the theater and at our nearby hotel were raving.

    We attended last evening’s concert in Cheyenne. It was fabulous! Doc and his 15 piece band plus an excellent singer kept us entertained from the first note of Johnny Carson’s Theme to the last note of the evening. I got a tear in my eye when they played “Here’s That Rainy Day”, Johnny’s favorite song he sang with Bette Midler on his second to the last show back in 1992.
    If you have an opportunity to go to a show, don’t miss it!!

    I sat in the 3rd row at the Holland performance center last Sat. night and as 59 yr. old ,,and player of the trumpet, I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful evening of music with you and your guest band. I thought you did a great job as well as my wife and those sitting around us. I appreciated the fact that you stepped up to the plate and took the lead and did your best. I’m sure you will do well with the rest of the tour. Thank you again. Sincerely

    Doc. Has inspired me since I was a child watching the tonight show with my grand parents. I now play trumpet professionally and teach music in public schools and privately. He continues to inspire.
