Brian Setzer Orchestra Announces 15th Anniversary ‘Christmas Rocks! Tour’

Music News

Brian Setzer and his 19-piece orchestra have rolled out the dates for their 15th anniversary 25-date “Christmas Rocks! Tour.” The revue kicks off on November 16th at Minneapolis’ State Theatre and wraps just before Christmas on December 22nd wraps December 22 at L.A.’s Microsoft Theatre. Setzer said in a statement announcing the dates, “The music I play in the big band is rock n’ roll with a jazz influence, 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-to-19 people is like writing a song within a song. It makes the song you might have heard many times sound new again.” Setzer and the band will be including tracks from their latest holiday set, Rockin’ Rudolph.

Apart from his groundbreaking ’80s rockabilly work with the Stray Cats, Brian Setzer is known for exploring many genres — including pop, big band, and jive. He told us that he can’t worry about how the public at large perceives him: “You can’t think that way. You can only do the best you can, write the best songs you can, do what I like, and keep nudging forward. If you start to tread water, I think that’s when you start to kinda slip a little. You have to kind of keep forging ahead, in little ways.”
