Brian Setzer Orchestra
Iconic guitarist, songwriter, vocalist and three-time Grammy-Award winner BRIAN SETZER and his 19-piece ORCHESTRA bring their “Christmas Rocks! Tour,” back to Houston's Arena Theatre It's an even bigger celebration this year as 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA.
The group’s set list will feature music off their latest Christmas album, ROCKIN' RUDOLPH plus music off their three previous best-selling holiday albums; and original material from BRIAN SETZER
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.
The 3-time Grammy-award-winner is a "Musician's Musician," widely credited for taking two forgotten genres, rockabilly and swing, adding his own blend of gunpowder and rockin style, and completely reinventing and single-handedly resurrecting them in the process. Along the way, he has scored chart-topping hits, sold 13 million records and received the Orville H. Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award. He is consistently cited as one of the world’s greatest living guitarists. BRIAN appeared in the 1987 film, La Bamba, portraying rockabilly pioneer Eddie Cochran, and in 2002, became one of the few musicians to be animated in an episode of "The Simpsons." That same year, SETZER was personally requested to induct Chet Atkins into the 17th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
