Iconic guitarist, songwriter, vocalist and three-time Grammy-Award winner BRIAN SETZER and his 19-piece THE BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA have announced their 14th annual “Christmas Rocks! Tour.” The show will perform at DPAC on Sunday, November 26, 2017.
The group’s set list will feature music off their latest Christmas album ROCKIN’ RUDOLPH (available now as a limited edition box set, CD, vinyl or download) plus music off their three previous best-selling holiday albums; and original material from BRIAN SETZER.
2017 is a big year for THE BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA who will celebrate their 25th anniversary in style with an exclusive landmark show at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on August 2nd. Under the stars at the legendary venue where they’ve performed on four previous occasions, SETZER’s trademark guitar work and vocal stylings will be matched with his 19-piece orchestra’s rockin’ big-band horn arrangements, making for a reliably unbeatable combination.
BRIAN SETZER belongs to an elite group of artists who’ve had four super successful phases of his career, from the Stray Cats, to solo albums, The Rockabilly Riot to BSO. The BSO show seamlessly encompasses music from all these phases. “The music I play in the big band is rock n’ roll with a jazz influence,” says SETZER. “What keeps it fresh is the quality of the players in the band. Also a big part of keeping the big band fresh is the arrangements; writing the arrangement for 18-19 people is like writing a song within a song. It makes the song you might have heard many times sound new again.”
