Have a swingin’ Christmas with Brian Setzer

Santa drives a hot rod in the Brian Setzer Orchestra’s flame-painted Christmas canon.

As for the reindeer, they’re plenty groovy.

Inherently jovial, Setzer’s horn-fired rockabilly is well-suited for further enlivening various seasonal standards, which the former Stray Cats frontman has been doing on his annual holiday for 11 years now.

Setzer does so with his trademark panache, envisioning a boogie-woogie St. Nick delivering toys to all the good little hepcats out there.

Even the Grinch has to Lindy Hop to that.
