The Brian Setzer Orchestra is Setzer's dream come true.
'Like pouring gasoline on a fire" is how BRIAN SETZER describes 1998's double-platinum, Grammy-winning, Top 10-charting The Dirty Boogie. But while Setzer wanted to fan the flames with the follow-up, he also wanted to jack up the octane. 'It would be an easy trap to fall into to do Dirty Boogie II,' says Setzer. 'The criticism of swing is that it's music from the past. I wanted to keep a lot of the same sound--this isn't a harpsichord record all of a sudden--but I wanted this to be music for 2000 and beyond. So we experimented, we stretched out. We said, ‘Let's get crazy and go for it.'

The Brian Setzer Orchestra felt the need to do some house cleaning before the arrival of the new millennium. So on Vavoom!, the fourth album from The Brian Setzer Orchestra, released August 1, 2000, he "scuffed it up." For most of the album's six classics, BRIAN SETZER says he "had to choose ways to make them mine. It was like rebuilding a house by taking the old one down except for one wall. In the end, it's so far away from the original, you can't imagine what it looked like when you started." Not only did he pen lyrics to the traditional instrumental "In The Mood," creating "Gettin' In The Mood," but he even added a rap. On "Pennsylvania 6-5000," there are new lyrics, tape loops and even a hip-hop beat.

'It took me by surprise that the hip-hop beat and the swing beat are parallel. When I heard it, I went, ‘I'll be damned, it worked, let's keep going.' I can tell if something's good if I smile. This made me smile. I wanted to make these songs so brand-new that people would go ‘Wow! I never thought...'

The Brian Setzer Orchestra loves to cover classic tunes. Along with a faithful rendition of "Mack The Knife," a psychobilly version of the instrumental "Caravan," a rockin' doo-wop take on "Gloria" and a freewheeling "Americano" (translated from the Italian original, made famous by Jude Law's and Matt Damon's performance in "The Talented Mr. Ripley"), BRIAN SETZER also penned eight originals. "My influences are always with me. All I can do is sit with a guitar and write rockabilly songs and, if they're good, then write the charts for the horns and turn them into the animals that they are."

Vavoom!, produced by Peter Collins (Jewel.php"> Jewel, Indigo Girls, Nanci Griffith), Glen Ballard ( Alanis Morissette, No Doubt) and David Darling, also adds female background singers to The BRIAN SETZER Orchestra experience for the first time. "It's a different dimension, especially live. Besides, they ain't bad to look at after seeing us slobs for an hour and a half." As a result, the band's tour this summer has been titled the "Here I Go Again Draggin' 16 Guys (And A Couple Chicks) Around The World Tour."

The Brian Setzer Orchestra is a unique beast. What is nearly as unlikely as the success of The BRIAN SETZER Orchestra--a true, 17-piece Big Band fronted by an electric guitar--is that no one has jumped on the bandwagon. The reason, suggests Setzer, is simple: "This isn't like punk rock, where anyone could pick up a guitar and play loud. The level of musicianship required is pretty high." Another reason may be that no one else has had the musical guts as well as chops.

The Brian Setzer Orchestra attributes its success to originality. 'What made it happen is that we're original,' BRIAN SETZER says. 'This is American music, it's ingrained in us, but we took it in a new direction. This is a whole different beast than a ‘40s Big Band. The only similarity is the instrument lineup. But our foundation is the rhythm section and the way I play guitar. I like what I like: guitars, hot rods and rock ‘n' roll. ‘Vavoom' sums up what this band is--bigger than life. The word means excitement, from the sound of a car starting up to the sound you make when you see a beautiful chick.'

Some say his greatest feat has been to resurrect a musical genre and make it "cool" again, as he earlier did with rockabilly. BRIAN SETZER, smiling, has a different idea. "I've received letters thanking me for making being a trombone player in the high school band hip. Now that's an accomplishment."

The Brian Setzer Orchestra has stayed busy touring and making new albums since 2000, including; Boogie Woogie Christmas (2002), Jump, Jive an' Wail - The Very Best of the Brian Setzer Orchestra (2003), The Ultimate Collection Live (2004), and Dig That Crazy Christmas (2005).
