Drop a quarter into this jukebox, and everything you know about contemporary pop music is turned upside down and funneled through a virtual time machine set on extended play.
Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox showed up at The Paramount Theatre in Denver, CO on April 12th, 2018 and filled the iconic venue with a unique Vaudeville-style performance that featured a fantastic array of talented performers.
Postmodern Jukebox is a musical collective of rotating artists under the direction of the group’s founder Scott Bradlee. PMJ initially found online fame in 2009, now with over 740 million YouTube views and 2.7 million subscribers, they have become a worldwide musical sensation. Scott Bradlee and PMJ embody the creative free spirit of independent artists that choose to create music on their terms. Their music is produced in-house without the involvement of a major record label, and those choices could not be more stunning or enjoyable. Their one of a kind spin on modern pop hits and retro pop stylings is dazzling and has turned their live shows into a joyful celebration of both the present and the past. Their audiences love them, and the capacity crowd at the Paramount Theatre was no exception.
The entire cast for the Thursday night show was just spectacular.
The nonstop, intermission-free performance was loaded top to bottom with dazzling vocals, astonishing choreography, and humor.
It featured Scott Bradlee's unique retro twist on everything from Sam Smith's "I'm Not the Only One" to a cover of Beyoncé's "Halo."
The set closed with a remarkable, knockout all cast performance of "What is Love." Just when it seemed things could not get any better, PMJ came back with a three-song encore that spotlighted an amazing acapella take on Miley Cyrus's "We Can't Stop" and Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass." The evening ended with a version of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" that had everyone out of their seats dancing, singing and smiling on the way out to the parking lot.
