Brian Setzer Orchestra Biography
The Brian Setzer Orchestra (sometimes going by the acronym BSO) is a swing/rockabilly band formed in 1990 by Stray Cats frontman Brian Setzer. The group had success covering Louis Prima's "Jump Jive An' Wail". The follow up single was "Gettin' In the Mood." The group paved the way for other Swing Revival artists such as Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Squirrel Nut Zippers, and Cherry Poppin' Daddies.
The orchestra is one of the only acts from the Swing Revival of the 1990s which still maintains a high level of popularity. The BSO is commonly seen during the December holidays covering Christmas songs, and often play the Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony.
