There’s a few artists that I can count on to do no wrong, and Brian Setzer is among them. No matter what the configuration of the band, Setzer delivers, whether it be studio albums, live performances, or the many live albums and Blu-ray releases that have captured those tours for more to enjoy. On February 18, Setzer’s ROCKABILLY RIOT! was captured on film for the first time at Namba Hatch in Osaka, Japan, a performance that encompasses songs from Setzer’s acclaimed 2014 studio album Rockabilly Riot! All Original, alongside classic hits from his Stray Cats days, Brian Setzer Orchestra tunes and tracks from his solo albums. Today comes a performance clip via Rolling Stone in which Setzer and his band–Noah Levy (Drums), Kevin McKendree (Piano and Guitar) and Mark Winchester (Bass)–are tearing it up on the Stray Cats classic, “Rumble In Brighton.” Check that out, along with “Drive Like Lightning (Crash Like Thunder)” below, and look for BRIAN SETZER’S ROCKABILLY RIOT: OSAKA ROCKA! – LIVE IN JAPAN when it hits Blu-ray, DVD and CD on November 4 via Surfdog Records.
