Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox brings The Grand ReOpening Tour, a new revue and rotating collective of singers and musicians, back to Ruth Eckerd Hall for a live show that is a rollicking, high-energy celebration! Pianist Scott Bradlee and his ad-hoc group became a viral sensation on YouTube, clocking nearly a billion views of reimagined contemporary pop, rock, and R&B hits in vintage styles from swing to doo-wop, ragtime to Motown.
Recent outings have included a ’20s jazz version of ’80s rock band Europe’s “The Final Countdown” and a ’50s-prom-style take on “Perfect Duet” by Ed Sheeran and Beyonce. A Postmodern Jukebox tour is a unique blend of talents and personalities that makes for a show that’s always entertaining and consistently fresh and exciting…and no two shows are ever the same!Show less
Since Bradlee created PMJ in 2009, the project has amassed more than 740 million YouTube views and 2.7 million subscribers, chalked up more than 1 million likes on Facebook, performed on “Good Morning America,” topped iTunes charts with all 14 of their releases since 2014, caught the attention of NPR Music and NBC News, and played hundreds of shows to sold-out houses around the world.
Despite finding such success for the project on the road, Bradlee continues to arrange and record new arrangements every week for PMJ’s legion of fans. The multi-talented collective has interpreted hits by Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, The White Stripes, Lorde, Outkast, Radiohead, Maroon 5 and many more. Last year, PMJ collected 18 favorites from among their hundreds of songs to compile The Essentials for Concord Records. The album included the song that put the band on the map, a vaudevillian distressing of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop,” and their ‘50s doo-wop version of Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop,” which garnered more than 19.5 million views and was named one of the “9 Best Viral Cover Videos of 2015” by People magazine.
