Brian Setzer Orchestra

Le Grand Événement d’ouverture TD

Watch the Brian Setzer Orchestra on demand until August 25th 2010. The show will be broadcast again, later on, on the XM satellite radio network.

There was once Brian Setzer, the former singer/ guitarist of the rockabilly trio the Stray Cats and his extraordinary Orchestra, with its Big Band jazz and wild impulses. His return to the Festival last year sent sparks flying at Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier: many dared to dream of a repeat experience under the stars. It's actually been on our minds since 1994, but this time the Festival and its organizers gave in to popular demand and are now offering this grand opening show, a muchcoveted gift! The spirited Brian Setzer Orchestra will be igniting the Place des Festivals and, just like his classic, he will Rock This Town! You guessed it: get there early!
