As a part of their sold out 2017 world tour, Scott Bradlee’s band Postmodern Jukebox is coming to Europe, and will have a concert in Belgrade’s Sava Centre on 30th March. Postmodern Jukebox is world famous for its unique vintage rendition of modern pop and rock songs.
They have sold out concerts in over 75 cities in Europe plus there are 16 concerts scheduled in Australia and New Zealand, and 45 in North America. The icing on the cake will be their concert at New York’s Radio City Music Hall on 7th October.
“We want people to feel like they are celebrating New Year’s Eve with Frank Sinatra, or like they are at a 1920s-themed party, the Great Gatsby style”, Bradlee explains.
Postmodern Jukebox is an ever-growing collective of musicians (there are 70 of them currently), and in the last few years, it had over 500 million vies on YouTube, and 2 million subscribers. It is one of the best selling bands on iTunes and has topped Billboard’s music charts.
The band got noticed when they performed Radiohead’s song “Creep” but with the song arrangement changed by Bradlee. The song was transformed into a slow ballad and got 19.5 million views. In 2015, it was voted the top 9 viral remakes. The group has a new video out every week, and most of them are recorded in Bradlee’s living room.
“I posted the first video in 2009. I was broke and lived in Queens. Only a few years later, we have managed to get 2 million subscribers, sold out our concerts on four continents, and assembled an incredible group of performers”, Bradlee adds.
