Brian Setzer

1959 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Acoustic guitar/electric guitar

Genres: Big Band, Rock, Swing

Since his debut with the Stray Cats in the early 80s, Brian Setzer has remained true to his initial inspiration. While he created a big band in the 90s, Setzer has always kept a firm toehold in rock and roll. A generous and charismatic showman, his shows have been singled out for their intensity. In 1994, flanked by a large orchestra that would rival that of Count Basie, he treated fans at the Festival to an anthology concert. Sixteen years later, the Brian Setzer Orchestra was called upon to play the opening outdoor concert at Place des Festivals.
