Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox return with 2018 UK dates

Story by Jack Foley

SCOTT Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox, the non-stop throwback party, will return in 2018 for a major UK tour.

Starting out as the bedroom project of Jazz pianist Scott Bradlee and rapidly growing into a viral and real-world sensation, the US group’s vintage-pop mash-ups have racked up over 811 million YouTube views and brought their rotating roster of top-class session musicians into the limelight & onto sold out worldwide tours.

Imagine marrying the 21st century party vibe of Miley Cyrus or the minimalist angst of Radiohead with the crackly warmth of a vintage ’78 or the plunger-muted barrelhouse howl of a forgotten Kansas City jazzman.

Bradlee’s choice of material ranges from the ‘80s hard rock of Guns N’ Roses to hits as recent as Taylor Swift’s controversial Look What You Made Me Do.

They’re rendered by a rotating cast of musicians and singers in fashions that date back to a time when Axl, Slash and T-Swift’s parents had yet to be born – a time of street corner harmonies and torch singers, blues belters and golden-voiced crooners.

Each week you don’t know what musical surprise appear, which makes their YouTube channel one of the most exciting with nearly 3 million subscribers to date. Their ‘50s doo-wop version of Miley Cyrus’ We Can’t Stop has garnered more than 19.5 million views and was named one of the ‘9 Best Viral Cover Videos of 2015’ by People magazine.
