Grammy Award-winning musician Brian Setzer will bring his Rockabilly Riot summer tour to the Chumash Casino Resort’s Samala Showroom at 8 p.m. Friday, June 1. Tickets for the show are $45, $55 and $65.

Setzer is a three-time Grammy Award winner who’s regarded for consistently taking chances with innovative and daring music styles, while single-handedly resurrecting two forgotten genres of music — rockabilly in the 1980s and swing in the ’90s.

He has scored chart-topping hits and accolades throughout his decorated career as a solo artist, as the founder of the Stray Cats and alongside his 17-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra.

Setzer last appeared at the Chumash Casino Resort in 2013 with his orchestra for a set filled with Christmas tunes for the holiday season. Now, he’s back and ready to kick off the Samala Showroom summer season with his rockabilly style.

In 1982, Setzer’s Stray Cats stormed onto the scene with Top 10 hits such as “Rock This Town” and “Stray Cat Strut.”

Sezter would later pursue a solo career before forming Brian Setzer Orchestra in the mid-1990s. It released four studio albums, a Christmas album and several live releases between 1994 and 2002. A cover of Louis Prima’s “Jump, Jive an’ Wail” became the group’s signature piece.

In 2014, Setzer released his ninth studio album Rockabilly Riot, which has served as the inspiration for subsequent tours. His 2016 DVD release “Rockabilly Riot! Osaka Rocka Live in Japan,” captures the essence of a Setzer show, which fans can experience in the Samala Showroom.

Located on Highway 246 in Santa Ynez, the Chumash Casino Resort is an age 21-and-older venue. Tickets for all events are available at the Chumash Casino Resort’s Club Indulge or online at www.chumashcasino.com.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
