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”
Genesee Theatre began its life with a sellout. Opening its doors on Christmas Day, 1927, it welcomed audiences to four sold-out movie screenings, but those flickering stories weren't the only attraction. A $25,000 pipe organ—and that's in old-timey dollars—immediately caught the eye, while Italian marble, a stunning chandelier, and the building's Spanish Renaissance–style architecture dazzled.
Over the years, many changes occurred, the glamorous quotient rising or dipping with the times and the theater closing altogether in 1989. But when it reopened again in 2004, it was back in full force. Antique chandeliers and fixtures of the period had been brought in from around the country, the luxe carpet had been recreated from a 1927 photograph, and all the dust bunnies had been sent packing with generous severance packages. Yet not all the updates were of the old-fashioned sort: the stage was doubled in size, and cutting-edge technology was brought in to give the theatre's high-voltage visitors, from comedians to musicians, the star treatment.
