The Brian Setzer Orchestra (sometimes going by the acronym BSO) is a swing and jump blues band formed in 1990 by Stray Cats frontman Brian Setzer. The group had success covering Louis Prima's "Jump Jive an' Wail", which appeared in Prima's 1957 album The Wildest!. The BSO's follow up single was "Gettin' In the Mood."

Setzer, who had grown up playing the baritone horn in school, often envisioned a rock guitar fronting a big band. In 1990, Setzer organized the orchestra, styled as a big band which included full sections of trumpet, trombone and saxophone players, and a rhythm section with Setzer on guitar and vocals, plus piano, string bass and drums. The orchestra began playing clubs in and around Los Angeles, and was eventually signed to Hollywood Records.

After the release of its first two albums in 1994 and 1996, the group achieved national acclaim during the Swing Revival of the mid 1990's, which saw other similar acts such as Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Squirrel Nut Zippers come to prominence. There had also been a change of labels, to Interscope Records. The band also had a slight change in orchestration, dropping the piano player. The arrangements on The Dirty Boogie (1998), a mix of Setzer-penned originals and covers of swing standards, had a much harder edge than the previous two albums. Setzer's cover of "Jump Jive an' Wail" was featured in a commercial for The Gap, after which the band soon found unprecedented demand. The orchestra then embarked on several U.S. and world tours.

The orchestra is one of the only acts from the Swing Revival of the 1990s which still maintains a high level of popularity. The BSO is commonly seen during the December holidays covering Christmas songs and often play the Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony. Additionally, Setzer tunes have been used in commercials, such as "The Man With The Magic Touch" appearing in commercials for Nikon cameras, and "There's A Rainbow 'Round My Shoulder" touting Massachusetts tourism.
