James Burton Added to Brian Setzer's Rockabilly Riot Show at Soundstage at Graceland

Legendary guitarist James Burton, a member of Elvis' TCB Band, has just been added a special guest performer at Brian Setzer's Rockabilly Riot at the Soundstage at Graceland on August 21.

It will also be James' 80th birthday, so the show will double as a huge birthday celebration for him.

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer James Burton organized Elvis' TCB Band and performed and recorded with Elvis from 1969-1977. Burton has recorded and performed with artists such as Johnny Cash, the Everly Brothers, Ricky Nelson, John Denver, Merle Haggard, Joni Mitchell, Roy Orbison, Elvis Costello and many more. He has also been inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame and Rockabilly Hall of Fame.

Burton will perform at the 1969 50th Anniversary Concert – Elvis Returns to Vegas event on August 16 and will share his memories of Elvis at the Elvis in Vegas Panel on August 17 during Elvis Week.

The August 21 with Brian Setzer's Rockabilly Riot also marks Burton's 80th birthday.

Guests who purchase a Graceland Live concert ticket will get free access to Elvis Presley's Memphis after 3:00pm the day of the concert.

Iconic guitarist, songwriter, vocalist and 3-time Grammy-award-winner Brian Setzer is a “Musician’s Musician,” credited with continually taking chances with innovative and daring musical styles, while single-handedly resurrecting two forgotten genres of music (rockabilly in the ‘80’s and swing in the ’90’s). Along the way, he has scored chart-topping hits, sold 13 million records and received the Orville H. Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award throughout his decorated career as founder/leader of the Stray Cats, his 19-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra, and as a solo artist.

He is consistently cited as one of the world’s greatest living guitarists, and has a best-selling, extensive line of elite Gretsch signature model guitars bearing his name. 

Brian appeared in the 1987 film, "La Bamba," portraying rockabilly pioneer Eddie Cochran. In 2002, Brian earned the privilege of being one of the few musicians to be animated in an episode of “The Simpsons.” That same year, Setzer was personally requested to induct Chet Atkins into the 17th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Setzer had the honor of being invited in 2006 to perform at the White House for the President of the United States. In 2014, Setzer received the distinct honor of being asked by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. to donate a replica of his original 1959 Gretsch 6120 “Stray Cat” guitar, joining an elite collection of iconic treasures at the museum.
