New York City’s pop-jazz sensation, Postmodern Jukebox, are set to return to the UK, bringing their innovative twist on classic sounds and performing ‘today’s hits yesterday’.
Concertgoers can expect a dazzling, inspiring trip through the PMJ Universe – where modern-day earworms and iconic pop hits alike are reimagined in classic genres like 1920s jazz, Swing, Doo-wop and Motown, and brought to life by a cast of some of the world’s best singers, dancers and instrumentalists. Think The Great Gatsby meets Sinatra at the Sands meets Back! …To The Future.
When pianist Scott Bradlee started the time-twisting musical collective from a basement apartment in Queens, NY, an online, ‘viral’ success story was born – one that quickly led to sold out shows across North America and Europe in the summer of 2014.
The touring act received rave reviews from industry publications and world-renowned artists alike. In the years that followed, PMJ built a reputation as the ‘Saturday Night Live of Singers’ by introducing audiences to dozens of exceptional musical artists – many of whom had been previously overlooked by the modern record industry – and turning them into bonafide stars.
Ten years and two billion views on their YouTube channel later, a Postmodern Jukebox show has become something of an annual musical tradition for hundreds of thousands of dedicated fans all over the world – fans that often show up dressed to the nines in their vintage best, eager to immerse themselves in the experience.
