The Brian Setzer Orchestra: 12th Annual Christmas Rocks! Tour
- When you first met Brian Setzer and his pompadour: when he crooned for the Stray Cats, the band that lassoed rockabilly into the 1980s with hits such as “Stray Cat Strut” and “Rock this Town”
- When he formed his eponymous orchestra: 1990, which led to the Grammy-winning swing-dance hit “Jump Jive an’ Wail”
- When he got the Christmas spirit: in 2002, when he released Boogie Woogie Christmas and crafted a new holiday tradition…
- …called Christmas Rocks!: Now on its 12th sleigh ride across the US, it’s that wonderful time of the year in which Brian, his hefty Gretsch, and that 18-piece orchestra literally rock around the Christmas tree in a set of festive holiday tunes infused with swing-band bombast, then revved into a rockabilly blitz.
- What’s under the tree this year: the BSO’s first Christmas album in 10 years, Rockin’ Rudolph, featuring Brylcreem takes on “Oh Little Town of Bethlehem,” the hep and self-explanatory title track, and the new Cro-Magnon Christmas classic, “Yabba Dabba Yuletide”
- What else you’ll hear: big-band revamps of festive bell jingles such as ”Jingle Bells” and “Jingle Bell Rock” from all three BSO holiday albums, and perhaps a stray Stray Cats tune like “Rock This Town”
The Palace Theatre
The Palace Theatre was hailed as "Connecticut's Most Magnificent" when it opened in 1927. Its grandeur was designed by architect Thomas Lamb of Madison Square Garden fame, who outfitted the vaudeville palace with a gilded proscenium and sweeping, pearl-shaded balconies. Today, audiences flock to the historic theater for performances from the Stamford Symphony, the Ballet School of Stamford, comedians, and musical acts.
