Postmodern Jukebox adds classic take on today’s hits
October 23, 2019
To usher in the upcoming Twenty-Twenties, famed time-twisting musical collective Postmodern Jukebox is circling the globe in 2019 on their Welcome to the Twenties 2.0 Tour. The tour comes to the Potter Center at Jackson College at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2.
PMJ is known for reworking popular modern music into different vintage genres, especially early 20th century forms such as swing and jazz. Postmodern Jukebox’s tour is meant to prepare the world for a new decade — one that creator Scott Bradlee hopes will see a return to the style and craftsmanship that typified the music of past generations. Started by Bradlee in 2009, Postmodern Jukebox has gone on to amass more than one billion YouTube views with 3.5 million subscribers, and have chalked up more than 1.7 million fans on Facebook. For the past half-decade, PMJ has toured the world, playing hundreds of shows to sold-out houses on six continents.
Postmodern Jukebox family has grown to include nearly 50 singers and another 50 instrumentalists, all of whom now have the opportunity to perform the classic genres they love for the audiences who appreciate them. Vocalists sing every note live, without any tuning help. Musicians make every sound you hear on stage with the instruments you see them playing. Postmodern Jukebox does it the old-fashioned way, and they love every second of it.
