THE BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA
CHRISTMAS ROCKS! EXTRAVAGANZA
November 17 & 18 at 8 p.m.
Three-time Grammy winner, Brian Setzer is a "musician's musician" credited with consistently taking chances with innovative and daring musical styles, while single-handedly resurrecting two forgotten genres of music (rockabilly in the ‘80's and swing in the '90's). Along the way he has scored chart-topping hits throughout his decorated career as founder and leader of the Stray Cats, his 18-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra, and also as a solo artist. He is one of the world’s most dynamic and respected guitarists and has an extensive line of best-selling Gretsch signature model guitars bearing his name to prove it.
If that wasn’t enough, Setzer found tremendous success in redefining Christmas music for a generation desperately desiring something new and exciting around the holidays. The result was three best-selling holiday albums (Boogie Woogie Christmas, Dig That Crazy Christmas, Christmas Rocks!: The Best Of Collection) and an annual Christmas tour that has certainly become the most exciting annual rockin' Christmas event on the planet. The Los Angeles Times calls it a show "whose sheer joy is irresistible!”
