Brian Setzer’s Rockabilly Riot: Osaka Rocka! – Live in Japan is now available

Friday, November 4th, 2016

BUY NOW:

Three-time Grammy-award-winner BRIAN SETZER’s new concert Blu-ray/CD, ROCKABILLY RIOT: OSAKA ROCKA! – LIVE IN JAPAN–filmed on February 18 at Namba Hatch in Osaka, Japan–is now available via Surfdog Records. Live and loud, the concert encompasses songs from SETZER’s acclaimed 2014 studio album Rockabilly Riot! All Original—a sizzling rockabilly album from start to finish featuring SETZER’s trademark twang and fretboard fire. Also included are classic hits from his Stray Cats days, Brian Setzer Orchestra tunes and tracks from his solo albums. In front of the wildly enthusiastic audience, Brian Setzer and his band—Noah Levy (Drums), Kevin McKendree (Piano and Guitar) and Mark Winchester (Bass)—are firing on all cylinders.
“This is the first time we’ve recorded the Rockabilly Riot on film,” says SETZER. “And also, just like in America, the cities differ in Japan. The Osaka fans are noted for generally being a very loyal and energetic audience. As you’ll see from the show, the Osaka fans are die-hard and know every single song and applaud after guitar solos, and even sing along to songs that I typically don’t see in other cities.”
ROCKABILLY RIOT: OSAKA ROCKA! – LIVE IN JAPAN is impressive on many levels including the red-hot chemistry of the band. “When you look up rockabilly in the dictionary there is a picture of Mark Winchester,” notes SETZER. “He grew up slapping the bass and is in a class of his own. The relationship with the drummer and the bass player in rockabilly is very unique. The slap bass is a rhythmic sounding instrument, so the drummer has to be very in time with him in order not to sound sloppy. Noah Levy is a very on-the-beat solid drummer, whereas me, as a guitar player, I push everything while they hold it all in place. And when you’re talking about the great rockabilly piano players, it’s a very short list, and Kevin McKendree is on it. And he also plays guitar incredibly well. We all just complement each other.”
Asked what he’d like to overhear fans saying after a gig, SETZER says: “I would love to hear, ‘You know, that Rockabilly Riot squad has all the energy and great things I like about the original rockabilly sound, yet they’re a modern band making this music sound new. I love it.’”
