Clearly, something about the mix of the old and the new has resonated with a lot of people, since Bradlee's YouTube channel has over a million subscribers and well over 19 million views. They're also taking the show on the road, so check their site to see if they're coming near your town.
Postmodern Jukebox is a full-band ensemble led by pianist Scott Bradlee. Bradlee is an accomplished jazz and ragtime pianist who noticed that the songs he was learning from the 1920s, '30s and '40s weren't really that different from the songs coming out today. According to him, they were all pretty much about love, dancing and enjoying life. This inspired him to do covers of today's music with a vintage twist, and Postmodern Jukebox was born.
