The Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo, presents "The Brian Setzer Orchestra Christmas Rocks Extravaganza! with Special Guests The Record Company" at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 23. Tickets are on sale now.
The Brian Setzer Orchestra, fronted by three-time Grammy Award-winner Brian Setzer, returns with the "Christmas Rocks Extravaganza!" tour. 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 hits such as "Rock This Town," "(She's) Sexy +17," "Stray Cat Strut," and "Jump, Jive and Wail," as well as his re-imagined and acclaimed holiday classics.
Setzer donated his signature orange Gretsch guitar to the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History during a ceremony Oct. 17. The replica guitar is evocative of Setzer's original 1959 Gretsch 6120 "Stray Cat" guitar.
Setzer's latest album, "Rockabilly Riot! All Original," was released in August.
