Setzer Orchestra Puts the Holiday Season Into Full Swing
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 27, 2012) — The Brian Setzer Orchestra, fronted by three-time Grammy Award-winner Brian Setzer, brings their "Christmas Rocks! Extravaganza" to the Bluegrass this December. The concert will begin 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7, in the University of Kentucky Singletary Center for the Arts. The opening act for the show will be Totsy.
With a career spanning more than 30 years, Setzer has smash hits as founder and leader of the Stray Cats, his 18-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra, and as a solo artist. Setzer is credited with 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 has scored countless chart-topping hits around the world.
