Grammy Award-winning musician Brian Setzer will bring his “Rockabilly Riot” summer tour to the Chumash Casino Resort’s Samala Showroom at 8 p.m. on Friday, June 1, 2018. Tickets for the show are $45, $55 & $65.
Setzer is a three-time Grammy Award winner who’s regarded for consistently taking chances with innovative and daring music styles, while single-handedly resurrecting two forgotten genres of music – rockabilly in the 1980s and swing in the ’90s.
He has scored chart-topping hits and accolades throughout his decorated career as a solo artist, as the founder of the Stray Cats and alongside his 17-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra.
Setzer last appeared at the Chumash Casino Resort in 2013 with his orchestra for a set filled with upbeat Christmas tunes for the holiday season. Now, he’s back and ready to kick off the Samala Showroom summer season with his distinct “rockabilly” style.
In 1982, Setzer’s Stray Cats stormed onto the scene with Top 10 hits such as “Rock This Town” and “Stray Cat Strut.” Sezter would later pursue a solo career before forming Brian Setzer Orchestra in the mid-1990s. It released four studio albums, a Christmas album and several live releases between 1994 and 2002. A cover of Louis Prima’s “Jump, Jive an’ Wail” became the group’s signature piece.
In 2014, Setzer released his ninth studio album, “Rockabilly Riot,” which has served as the inspiration for subsequent tours. His 2016 DVD release “Rockabilly Riot! Osaka Rocka Live in Japan,” captures the essence of a Brian Setzer show, which fans can experience in the intimate, 1,400-seat Samala Showroom on June 1.
Don’t miss an opportunity to see this acclaimed musician when he takes the stage in one of the most popular entertainment venues in Santa Barbara County.
Located on Highway 246 in Santa Ynez, California, the Chumash Casino Resort is an age 21-and-older venue. Tickets for all events are available at the Chumash Casino Resort’s Club Indulge or online at www.chumashcasino.com.
