Brian Setzer Orchestra Transforms Classical Melodies Into Rock & Roll

August 20th, 2007 3:33pm EDT
Brian Setzer
Brian Setzer has made a career of bucking trends, going against the grain, ignoring popular culture, discarding rational thought, and, all the while, blowing people away. In a pop music era dominated by twenty-something contest winners and angst-ridden suburban kids, his latest project couldn't be any further removed from the mainstream. Recording centuries-old music with his 18-piece Rockin' Big Band and enlisting the help of a long-retired octogenarian, Setzer has achieved what is surely his finest musical hour with his upcoming Surfdog Records release, Wolfgang's Big Night Out.

Brian Setzer Is Back With '13'

October 4th, 2006 5:26pm EDT
Brian Setzer
Three-time Grammy winner Brian Setzer is poised to win over legions of new fans with the release of '13' on Surfdog Records. This newest album of original material features 13 tracks of blazing guitar and swaggering vocals that proves there's more than one way to rock.

"We Are the Marauders," the testosterone-rich track on '13,' is a veritable fight anthem against rock 'n' roll conformity. Setzer wrote the heart-thumping track for the Pennsylvania rockabilly band The Marauders whose music and we-don't-give-a-damn attitude struck a chord with the former Stray Cat.

For the rising ba...

Merry Christmas From the Brian Setzer Orchestra

November 7th, 2005 7:50am EST
Brian Setzer
For the 2005 Brian Setzer Orchestra Christmas album, 'Dig That Crazy Christmas' (click for review), Brian Setzer penned two brand new holiday tunes: "Santa Drives a Hot Rod." and "Hey Santa!," a blazing rockabilly-swing gem that should stand as a hepcat's Christmas anthem. Setzer sings, "Santa don't bring me any toys/Just bring my baby and a bottle of joy." Setzer is the king of all things retro, so it should come as no surprise that "Hey Santa!" comes off like an instant standard.

Setzer has became a Christmas icon by playing the classics next to his amazing originals. BSO's version ...
