The Brian Setzer Orchestra - 'Christmas Rocks! Live' Concert Film is Coming to Blu-ray...

Written by

There's a few artists whose concert films I always pick up, and Brian Setzer is one of those. While he's had several DVD and Blu-ray releases over the years, only a a handful have focused on The Brian Setzer Orchestra, and there hasn't been a holiday release since 2005's Christmas Extravaganza. That changes this season with the release of Christmas Rocks! Live, coming to Blu-ray on November 9, 2018 via Surfdog Records. See the trailer and full tracklisting below, and if you want more family entertainment for the holidays, check out The Rock Father's Ultimate Guide to New Release Holiday Music and Movies for 2018, a presentation of my Holiday Wish Guide™!
