Postmodern Jukebox
Postmodern Jukebox
Founded by pianist/arranger Scott Bradlee in 2009, SBPJ reimagines contemporary pop, rock, and R&B hits in the style of various yesteryears, from swing to doo-wop, ragtime to Motown—or as Bradlee puts it, “pop music in a time machine.” On the current release, The Essentials, material ranges from ‘80s hard rock of Guns N’ Roses to hits as recent as Justin Bieber’s plea ‘Sorry’. The album includes breathtaking vocals, raucous horn solos, infectious dance rhythms, and nostalgic melodies. It’s all rendered by a rotating cast of musicians and singers in fashions that date back to a time when Axl, Slash, and Bieber’s parents had yet to be born. The media has taken notice—Entertainment Weekly wrote, the “group is known for retro-frying modern hits songs into viral success.” So imagine “We Can’t Stop” by Miley Cyrus as 1950s doo-wop, Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child O’ Mine” as gutbucket Bourbon Street blues, and the schmaltzy “My Heart Will Go On” as Jackie Wilson-style R&B. Welcome to the world of Postmodern Jukebox.
