The Brian Setzer Orchestra, fronted by three-time Grammy Award-winner Brian Setzer, brings their Christmas Rocks! Extravaganza to The Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center. 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 . Tickets available at Ticketmaster and the Cobb Energy Center Box Office beginning Friday, August 10 at Noon.
Brian Setzer is credited with consistently taking chances with innovative and daring musical styles and single-handedly resurrecting two forgotten genres of music (rockabilly in the ‘80s and swing in the ‘90s). He recorded several albums with The Stray Cats and scored countless chart-topping hits around the world.
The legendary artist formed his rockin’ big band, The Brian Setzer Orchestra, in 1992 and set the stage for the ‘90s swing movement with his blistering performances. He has won three Grammy Awards including two in 1998 for Best Pop Instrumental Performance and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. Setzer has also found tremendous success in redefining Christmas music and has released three best-selling holiday albums- “Boogie Woogie Christmas,” “Dig That Crazy Christmas” and “Christmas Rocks! The Best of Collection.”
