About the Brian Setzer Orchestra
Brian Setzer would be instrumental to the revival
of big and jump swing and rockabilly music in the 'eighties and 'nineties. Initially the frontman for the big beat group the
Stray Cats, he would stay with that classic trio until the band's appeal eventually petered out in the early 'nineties. After
the Stray Cats' swan song, the 1992 release Choo Choo Hot Fish, Setzer knew it was time to start something new.
put together what he called the Brian Setzer Orchestra, a re-imagining of his beloved rockabilly boogie that dovetailed nicely
with the neo-swing craze of that time. The Orchestra's eponymous debut album would come out in 1994 on the Hollywood label
and would perform with considerable health on the charts, peaking at number one hundred fifty-eight on the Billboard 200.
After some organizational restructuring at the Hollywood label, the Brian Setzer Orchestra would become a part of Interscope
Records. In 1996, Interscope would release the Orchestra's sophomore album, Guitar Slinger. Although Guitar Slinger would
not make it onto the Billboard charts, it would lay a foundation that would be key to the development of their next album.
In 1998, the Brian Setzer Orchestra would release The Dirty Boogie with much success. The Dirty Boogie would be followed by
Vavoom! in 2000, which would do reasonably well as a denouement from the last album. But the appeal of the Brian Setzer Orchestra
was obvious to everyone including Setzer, who with a sure hand continued to build upon the success he had found in the rockabilly
and neo-swing niche. Into the new millennium, the Brian Setzer Orchestra would release a near-constant stream of wide-ranging
big-band swing albums that would mostly be released on the SurfDog record label. Setzer would pull out all the stops to release
no less than five Christmas and seasonal albums, as well as covering a number of classical music songs in his swinging style.
While the Brian Setzer Orchestra would find minor success with their first eponymous release, it
would be their third album, 1998's The Dirty Boogie, that would be their smash hit. The Dirty Boogie's success would be due
in large part to "Jump Jive and Wail," their wildly popular cover of a Louis Prima song. "Jive Jump and Wail" would climb
to number twenty three on the charts, and The Dirty Boogie itself would rise all the way up to number nine on the Billboard
Their next album Vavoom!, released in 2000, would perform with modest commercial success at number sixty-two on
On the twenty-ninth of June, 2006, Brian Setzer and his orchestra would be called upon
to play for an audience no less distinguished than the White House. The Orchestra's performance would be part of the entertainment
scheduled after an official dinner held in honor of a visit from the Japanese Prime Minister, Junichiro Koizumi.
