2017 is a big year for THE BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA who will celebrate their 25th anniversary in style with an exclusive landmark show at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on August 2. Under the stars at the legendary venue where they've performed on four previous occasions, SETZER's trademark guitar work and vocal stylings will be matched with his 19-piece orchestra's rockin' big-band horn arrangements, making for a reliably unbeatable combination.

BRIAN SETZER belongs to an elite group of artists who've had four super successful phases of his career, from the Stray Cats, to solo albums, The Rockabilly Riot to BSO. The BSO show seamlessly encompasses music from all these phases. "The music I play in the big band is rock n' roll with a jazz influence," says SETZER. "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 18-19 people is like writing a song within a song.  It makes the song you might have heard many times sound new again."
 
For the past two years, THE BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA has had a strong presence on SiriusXMduring the holidays. The band performed exclusive invitation-only concerts for SiriusXM listeners in New York City in 2015 and 2016, which aired on SiriusXM's Outlaw Country and Holly channels. Details of this year's special SiriusXM concert will be announced this fall.
