Brian Setzer’s Stray Cats are set to reunite for a show at this year’s Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend, marking the first time the band has played together in over a decade.
Brian Setzer, bassist Lee Rocker and drummer Slim Jim Phantom – original founding members of the acclaimed American Rockabilly trio, the STRAY CATS – will reunite for their first North American performance in 10 years on Saturday, April 21 in Las Vegas at The Orleans when they headline “Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend.” The iconic group, known for their high-energy performances with hits such as“Stray Cat Strut,” “(She’s) Sexy + 17,” and “Rock This Town,” are honored to share the stage with such musical legends as Jerry Lee Lewis and Duane Eddy.
Setzer, who just received the Ameripolitan Master Award at the 2018 Ameripolitan Music Awards, said “There’s something magic about a Stray Cats show, [and] Viva Las Vegas is the perfect event to experience that.”
Rocker added: “Just a string bass, a guitar and a drum—Stray Cats are back to show ’em how it’s done. Thirty-nine years after our first gigs, we’re back! Can’t wait to rock again with my brothers Brian and Slim.”
Setzer and the Stray Cats will headline with legends, Duane Eddy and Jerry Lee Lewis. The annual Rockabilly event features burlesque shows, pool parties, Pin-up contests, over 100 bands, swimsuit contests with pre-1970 swimwear, and a massive car show.
