Postmodern Jukebox at Troy Music Hall

Postmodern Jukebox

The pop song cover/re-interpretation act Postmodern Jukebox is set to play a show at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall October 25. Tickets are on sale now -- they're $29.

Postmodern Jukebox is a project created by pianist Scott Bradlee. It takes modern pop hits and reinterprets them in other styles, often from previous eras. A few examples: a ragtime version of "Call Me Maybe" and and 1920s jazz take on Iggy Azalea's "Fancy." The various covers have racked up millions of YouTube plays.

A clip from Bradlee's self-described background of Postmodern Jukebox:

My goal with Postmodern Jukebox is to get my audience to think of songs not as rigid, ephemeral objects, but like malleable globs of silly putty. Songs can be twisted, shaped, and altered without losing their identities-just as we grow, age, and expire without losing ours-and it is through this exploration that the gap between "high" and "low" art can be bridged most readily.
