The Brian Setzer Orchestra, fronted by three-time Grammy® Award-winner Brian Setzer, returns with their Christmas Rocks Extravaganza! Tour and will play the Ryman on Monday, December 8. With a career spanning more than 30 years, Setzer has smash hits as founder/leader of The Stray Cats, his 18-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra and as a solo artist. His December concert will include Setzer’s legendary guitar magic on hits such as “Rock This Town,” “(She’s) Sexy +17,” “Stray Cat Strut,” and “Jump, Jive and Wail” and lots more, as well as his re-imagined and acclaimed Holiday classics.
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).
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!”
