Our first Brian Setzer Orchestra Christmas, but not our last. If the BSO comes to L.A. next Christmas, we'll be there too. Outstanding show!

I was pleasantly surprised by the decorations, set, Brian's talent, the energy in the audience. I felt transported to Christmas back about 20-30 years. It was a great performance and mixture of entertainmnent, for all ages. Loved it.

Setzer and his group were terrific, as I expected.
Was very impressed with the opening act "Totsy", which I did not expect.

Great concert from the opening act, Totsy, to the final encore. The energy was good, the performers were great and the crowd was happy. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and hope to attend the Christmas concert again next year.

Had an enjoyable evening. Age has nothing to do with this, but if LOUD is good LOUDER is not necessarily better.

Great music, good venue, really good sound mixing and perfect volume. Brian was amazing on guitar, but his vocals were a bit rough and he sounded tired. The big band is fabulous. This is a don't miss it kind of show. Truly the best big band...continued

The show far exceeded my expectation. I appreciated that Brian included a few Stray Cat standards. The big band were phenomenal and they did their best to get me and my family in the Christmas spirit.
