Brian Setzer Orchestra - Sleigh Ride - Live!

One of my favorite Christmas tunes, set to a rockabilly boogie beat by the multi-talented retro rocker Brian Setzer.

The former Stray Cat apparently collapsed on stage in Albuquerque, New Mexico while on tour Tuesday night, so here' s hoping his hospitalization is going well.

Update: Brian was briefly hospitalized in Albuquerque, NM last night after a combination of dehydration, high altitude, and vertigo made him unable to continue his performance at the Isleta Casino after several songs. Brian has completely recovered and will perform tonight at the Dodge Theater in Phoenix, AZ, and will continue with the remainder of the tour uninterrupted.


  1. Woohoo a nice tune to warm up to in these freezing conditions.

    Thank you Doug!

  2. Glad you liked this one Frank. I almost went with a traditional version of this by The Boston Pops, but this was a great update of an old favorite.

  3. I totally agree Cassandra. I wish this big-band style group was around here locally--an evening of tunes like this would be worth the price of admission.
