April 20, 2018 – Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox
Dr. Phillips Center presents Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox in association with AEG Presents at Walt Disney Theater on Friday, April 20, 2018 at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $34.50. VIP packages available.
This multi-talented collective reimagines contemporary pop, rock and R&B hits in the style of various yesteryears, from swing to doo-wop, ragtime to Motown or, as Bradlee himself puts it, “pop music in a time machine.” Bradlee’s choice of material ranges from the ‘80s hard rock of Guns N’ Roses to hits as recent as 2015’s Justin Bieber plea “Sorry.” They’re rendered by a rotating cast of musicians and singers in fashions that date back to a time when Axl, Slash and Bieber’s parents had yet to be born — a time of street corner harmonies and torch singers, blues belters and golden-voiced crooners.
Postmodern Jukebox originally blew up online, with new videos added weekly that keep finding creative new ways to put creator Scott Bradlee’s trademark vintage twist on modern pop hits. Since Bradlee created the project in 2009, PMJ has amassed more than 850 million YouTube views and 3 million subscribers, chalked up more than 1 million likes on Facebook, performed on Good Morning America, topped iTunes and Billboard charts, and caught the attention of NPR Music and NBC News. But it’s onstage that the project has really come to shine, playing hundreds of shows to sold-out houses across the globe, from intimate standing-room gigs to large-scale, theatrical extravaganzas.
