Brian Setzer Orchestra Played Christmas Show at The Joint on Yesterday



Multiple Grammy-winning musician Brian Setzer brought his high-energy big band orchestra to northeast Oklahoma this week for a special holiday performance.

His solo releases include “Don’t Mess With A Big Band (Live!)” and “Christmas Comes Alive,” both released in 2010.

For decades, he was the blond-pompadoured frontman of the Stray Cats, a band that brought the punk-rockabilly sound into the mainstream with hits that include “Stray Cat Strut,” “Rock This Town,” “Look at That Cadillac,” “I Won’t Stand in Your Way” and “Bring it Back Again.” The band formed in 1979 and continued, off and on, until 2009.

Setzer’s Christmas extravaganza includes standards and reworked classics with his 18-piece jump blues and swing orchestra, as well as hits from his solo, orchestra and Stray Cats years. His most popular songs include “Jump Jive an’ Wail,” “Rumble In Brighton,” “Sexy and 17,” “Symphony No. 5,” “Sleepwalk” and “Caravan,” among others.

His solo American swing revival album, “Songs From Lonely Avenue,” helped him earn a Grammy nomination for the single “Mr. Surfer Goes Jazzin.”

Since the mid-1990s, The Brian Setzer Orchestra has released 15 albums. He’s won three Grammy awards.
