Hear your favorite songs reimagined in a completely new genre with Postmodern Jukebox
I certainly didn’t know what to expect when I bought my tickets to Postmodern Jukebox. I briefly read up about it and watched a couple Youtube Videos. But that doesn’t really prepare you for the live Postmodern Jukebox performance. Imagine wandering into a nightclub where all genres and eras have sort of melded together. Imagine a Motown version of your favorite U2 song. Or Taylor Swift’s latest hit performed by a swing band. That’s exactly what Postmodern Jukebox does, and it’s amazing. You just can’t imagine until you attend one of their incredible performances live. I was really blown away.
You’ll feel like you’re getting more than just some neat, new versions of songs you know. There are many performers and they are not just limited to one instrument or vocals. With Postmodern Jukebox, the performers each take turns singing and playing multiple instruments as well. Plus, there are many costume changes to keep up with each era and genre.
Postmodern Jukebox began in 2009 when pianist Scott Bradlee, decided to start these performances out of his New York apartment. They twist and reimagine all kinds of music from contemporary pop, rock and R&B hits in the style of various decades, from swing to doo-wop, ragtime to Motown – or, as Bradlee himself puts it, “pop music in a time machine.”
Postmodern Jukebox was almost an overnight success, garnering more than 450 million YouTube views and over 2 million subscribers
