Postmodern Jukebox brings their vintage twist on modern pop hits with their Back In Black & White Tour!
This multi-talented collective reimagines contemporary pop, rock and R&B hits in the style of various yesteryears, from swing to doo-wop, ragtime to Motown. Imagine marrying the 21st century party vibe of Miley Cyrus or the minimalist angst of Radiohead with the crackly warmth of a vintage 78 or the plunger-muted barrelhouse howl of a forgotten Kansas City jazzman. Their sound, described as “pop music in a time machine” is rendered by a rotating cast of musicians and singers in fashions that date back to a time of street corner harmonies and torch singers, blues belters and golden-voiced crooners.
Their album The Essentials featured the songs including hits by Beyoncé, the White Stripes, Lorde, Outkast, Maroon 5 and the song that put the band on the map, a vaudevillian distressing of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop.” Fronted by Robyn Adele Anderson, “Thrift Shop” got more than a million views within a week of being posted. Their rendition of “Creep” by Radiohead has over 45 million views!
