The Brian Setzer Orchestra was founded in 1990 and today is considered one of the few groups that represent the so-called Swing Revival currently.
Born Brian Robert Setzer on January, 1980, Setzer led the popular rockabilly band, Stray Cats. After performances from New York to Philadelphia, Setzer, Lee Rocker (Leon Drucker) and Slim Jim Phantom (James McDonnell) decided to go to London, England (in June 1980) where they believed, would have better acceptance and appreciation of their style and your sound.
As soon as they arrived, they decided to change the band’s name to Stray Cats, a name suggested by Rocker. The Stray Cats have garnered attention from America with the 1982 album Built for Speed, which includes two Top 10 hits: Rock This Town (# 9) and Stray Cat Strut (# 3), as well as their upcoming album Rant ‘ N Rave, which also includes two successful singles: (She’s) Sexy + 17 (# 5) and I Will not Stand in Your Way (# 35).
