The Grand Reopening Tour Postmodern Jukebox
PMJ shows bring a full band of gifted musicians, with a cast of favorite singers and tons of surprises, to a city near you. As any PMJ fan can tell you, the experience is never the same twice, with new songs and shifting combinations of members giving a unique twist to every show. PMJ looks forward to bringing their unique spin on modern pop hits and retro pop stylings to new cities for the first time, while revisiting favorite haunts that feel more like home each time around.
The 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 creator Scott Bradlee himself puts it, “pop music in a time machine.” Started by Bradlee in 2009, PMJ has gone on to amass more than 950 million YouTube views with 3.3 million subscribers, and have chalked up more than 1.5 million likes on Facebook. The band has performed on “Good Morning America,” topped iTunes and Billboard charts, caught the attention of NPR Music and NBC News, and played hundreds of shows to sold-out houses around the world.
For those who only know PMJ from their time-warping videos, the live show is an experience on a whole other level. It’s a Roaring 20s party that would make the Great Gatsby proud, mixed with a swinging 60s night with the Rat Pack, spiced up with a little Motor City soul and some classic sock hop rockin’ that gets the audiences twisting or twerking the night away - depending on what era their mood is in. A Postmodern Jukebox tour is a unique blend of talents and personalities that makes for a show that’s always entertaining and consistently fresh and exciting.

Viral YouTube sensation Postmodern Jukebox has announced the “Grand Reopening” tour with a stop at Taft Theatre on Wednesday, March 2, 2022.
When New York City pianist Scott Bradlee created Postmodern Jukebox out of a basement in Queens in 2011, his goal was simple: to remake the pop hits of today into the classic sounds of the legends of yesterday. Miley Cyrus became The Platters. Bruno Mars became Frank Sinatra. The Spice Girls became The Andrews Sisters. Guns ’n’ Roses became Bessie Smith.
Now, nearly a decade later, Postmodern Jukebox has grown to become a pop culture mainstay in its own right, having played over a thousand shows on six continents worldwide — including acclaimed venues like Radio City Music Hall, Sydney Opera House, and Red Rocks Amphitheater. In the process, PMJ has introduced audience to many of the world’s greatest singers, dancers, and instrumentalist — many of whom have gone on to become stars in their own right.
One part celebration of vintage music and culture, one part “’Saturday Night Live’ for singers”, a Postmodern Jukebox show is an unforgettable trip back in time that makes Pop Music History — in your own hometown.
