Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox

Presented by Segerstrom Center for the Arts (SCFTA) at Unknown

Don vintage threads and dance, dance, dance. Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox perform present day music à la pop hits of the past: Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” assayed as a doo-wop number; Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop” tricked out in flapper jazz; Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” rendered a 1940s big-band standard. Bradlee uses music itself to inform audiences about 20th century song styles, demonstrate the remarkable elasticity of the pop form, confound cultural context and unite generations. “I reimagine a song in another style because I want to hear it that way,” says Bradlee. “Coming to a PMJ show is like time-traveling back to Old Hollywood – it’s an experience.”
