Brian Setzer Partners With Iconic Los Angeles Photographer to Release Limited Edition, Numbered, and Signed Gallery Prints!

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015
Brian Setzer has partnered with Edward Colver—the legendary Los Angeles photographer known as “The Eye of LA Punk”–for a special limited edition, numbered and signed printing of two photos which captured Brian during his first Los Angeles performance with his acclaimed rockabilly trio, the Stray Cats.

The idea for the collaboration was sparked by Colver approaching Brian with a couple of energetic black/white shots that he took of Brian performing with the Stray Cats at their very first show in Los Angeles at The Roxy in 1980. These two exceptional photos have been printed on 11×14″ 100% cotton rag archival paper in pigment ink, and autographed by both Brian and Colver in pencil; this marks the first time Brian or Colver have done any type of collaboration like this. 

There are 100 limited edition numbered copies of each photo available for purchase HERE.
