Two legendary entertainers and a television star will join the ranks of the Scandinavian-American Hall of Fame in October.
The Norsk Hostfest announced this week that Doc Severinsen, Bobby Vee, and Sig Hansen would be inducted during this year's festival.
Grammy Award-winner Doc Severinsen became well known as the leader of the Tonight Show Band during Johnny Carson's long tenure as that program's host.
He has continued sharing his love of music in the form of "Doc Severinsen and His Big Band," a group that has toured the world.
Bobby Vee, a native of Fargo, first hit the music charts in 1959 and had 38 songs hit Billboard Magazine's Hot 100, including ten, top-20 hits.
Vee's memorable hits include Rubber Ball, The Night Has a Thousand Eyes, and Come Back When You Grow Up.
Sig Hansen has made a splash on the entertainment world through his exploits on board the fishing vessel Northwestern on television's The Deadliest Catch.
The three inductees will be honored at the annual Scandinavian-American Hall of Fame banquet on October 1 at the Holiday Inn Riverside in Minot.
