Postmodern Jukebox

KALAMAZOO, Mich.—Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox is bringing its spin on today's popular hits to West Michigan. The show includes the vintage pop sensation's first-ever performance at Western Michigan University's Miller Auditorium at 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan.  28. Tickets are available beginning Friday, Nov. 11.

Created by Bradlee, the rotating collective of Postmodern Jukebox has spent the past few years amassing more than 500 million YouTube views and 2 million subscribers, performed on "Good Morning America," topped iTunes and Billboard charts and played hundreds of shows to packed-house crowds around the world.

The group takes current Top 40 hits and re-imagines them as coming from older eras of popular music. In one such remake, Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox turned Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" into a doo-wop ditty that's garnered more than 16 million views. Last year, they envisioned Radiohead's alt-rock hit "Creep" as a torch-like ballad that's racked up 21 million views and was named one of the "9 Best Viral Cover Videos of 2015" by People magazine. Multi-Grammy winning artist Lorde praised Postmodern Jukebox's vintage take on her hit single, "Royals," which has been viewed more than 15.3 million times, as her "favorite." They recently performed a '30s jazz remake of Elle King's "Ex's & Oh's" for MTV UK.

The group's accomplishments have earned them praise from a plethora of media outlets, including Mashable, Entertainment Weekly and Yahoo! Music.
