(NEWTON, NJ) -- The Newton Theatre presents Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox on Sunday, March 23, 2023 at 7:00pm. Born and raised just outside Clinton, NJ, pianist Scott Bradlee created Postmodern Jukebox out of a basement in Queens in 2011 with the goal of remaking the pop hits of today into the classic sounds of the legends of yesterday.
In his mind, 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 audiences to many of the world’s greatest singers, dancers and instrumentalists — 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.
Tickets will be available for purchase online starting Friday, November 4 at 10:00am. A special online only presale takes place Thursday, November 3 from 10:00am to 10:00pm. Reserved seating $69-$99. Additional fees may apply.
New Jersey Stage spoke with Scott Bradlee in 2017 where he talks about the moment piano first clicked for him and the evolution of the band into a pop culture phenomenon. Click here for the article.
“A song can be detached from its genre pretty easily,” explained Bradlee. “I think we’re used to hearing songs covered in a certain style because the original artist did it that way. I decided to take the opposite approach and do it completely different. You find that a great song can transcend genre.”
The Newton Theatre is located at 234 Spring Street in Newton, New Jersey.
