Postmodern Jukebox

Postmodern Jukebox, also widely known by the acronym PMJ, is a rotating musical collective founded by arranger and pianist Scott Bradlee in 2011. PMJ is known for reworking popular modern music into different vintage genres, especially early 20th century forms such as swing and jazz. Postmodern Jukebox has amassed over 1 billion YouTube views and 3.4 million subscribers. Each week, Postmodern Jukebox puts out a new video on YouTube. Although originally most were filmed casually in Bradlee’s living room, sets became more elaborate over time.

On February 24, 2016, Postmodern Jukebox opened at the Dubai Jazz Festival, alongside Sting, Toto, Chris Botti, and David Gray. The 2016 tours included three continents: 1) a 75-date European tour at Vicar Street in Dublin, Ireland, wrapping on June 3, 2016 in Athens, Greece. 2) A 16-city Australia/New Zealand tour, which kicked off on August 29, 2016 at the Isaac Theatre Royal in Christchurch, wrapping on September 20, 2016 at the Perth Concert Hall. and 3) a 45-stop fall North American tour, kicking off on September 29, 2016 at the Vets in Providence, Rhode Island, and wrapping on November 27, 2016 in Mesa, Arizona.

The 2017 tour included concurrent dates in Europe and the USA, with two separate “casts” of musicians. PMJ made its first visit of South America in August 2017, with four dates in Brazil and one in Argentina. In April 2018, PMJ made their debut in Africa, performing in Tunisia at the Jazz a Carthage Festival and Morocco at the Jazzablanca Festival, marking the sixth continent on which they’ve performed.
