The Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo, presents The Brian Setzer Orchestra 12th annual "Christmas Rocks!" tour at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 22, in the Mainstage Theatre, located at the Center for the Arts, North Campus.
Three-time Grammy Award-winner Brian Setzer fronts the Brian Setzer Orchestra. 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 November concert will include Setzer's legendary guitar magic on hits such as "Rock This Town," "(She's) Sexy +17," "Stray Cat Strut," and more, as well as his re-imagined and acclaimed Holiday classics.
The Brian Setzer Orchestra released "Rockin' Rudolph," their first studio Christmas album in 10 years, on Oct. 16. The 12-track "Rockin' Rudolph" includes highlights such as "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," "Yabba-Dabba Yuletide" and "Rockabilly Rudolph," among other notable Christmas classic tunes, with Setzer's trademark guitar work and vocal stylings matched with the orchestra's rocking 18-piece big-band horn arrangements.
