Brian Setzer is coming to Grand Junction, but the question everyone is asking is “who in the world is Brian Setzer?”

If you are one of those people, you have come to the right place for the answer. Once you are done with this, not only will you know who Brian Setzer is, but you will realize that you already know who he is.
