SCOTT BRADLEE’S POSTMODERN JUKEBOX
RETURNS TO NEW ZEALAND – AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2016
BRINGING THEIR VINTAGE TWIST TO MODERN POP SONGS & THIS TIME WITH MORE SHOWS! 

Following their sold-out 2015 Australia/NZ tour and upon the demand of their passionate New Zealand fan base, Nice Events is proud to announce that Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox will return to New Zealand in September 2016 for a national tour;

Monday 29 August - Isaac Theatre Royal, CHRISTCHURCH
Tuesday 30 August - Dunedin Town Hall, DUNEDIN
Thursday 1 September - Civic Theatre, INVERCARGILL
Friday 2 September - Shed 6, WELLINGTON
Saturday 3 September - Regent Theatre, PALMERSTON NORTH
Sunday 4 September - Napier Municipal Theatre, NAPIER
Monday 5 September -ASB Theatre, AUCKLAND

PMJ will be wrapping up a 75-city sold-out European run in June 2016 and just last month announced a much-anticipated 45-date North American tour from September to November, which will include their first-ever performance at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

In 2015, PMJ sold-out their Australia / New Zealand tour, prompting high praise from media across the country. The West Australian said the show had the audience “clapping, cheering, singing, dancing or simply gathering our collective jaws off the Astor’s carpet,” while Time Out wrote, “It’s fun. It’s funny, and it’s brining a fresh take to pop tunes of this century with musical forms made popular in the last one!”

Postmodern Jukebox, the ever-growing collective of performers – now with a roster of over 70 rotating cast members - has spent the past few years amassing nearly 500 million YouTube views and 2 million subscribers, performed on Good Morning America, topped iTunes and Billboard charts, and played hundreds of shows to packed-houses around the world. As NPR put it, they’ve done this by “taking current Top 40 hits and re-imagining them as coming from older eras of popular music.” In one such remake, Postmodern Jukebox turned Miley Cyrus’ We Can’t Stop into a doo-wop ditty that’s garnered over 15.6 million views.  Last year, Bradlee arranged Radiohead’s alt-rock hit Creep as a torch-like ballad that’s racked up over 16.9 million views and was named one of the 9 Best Viral Cover Videos of 2015 by People magazine.

Multi-Grammy winning artist Lorde praised Postmodern Jukebox’s vintage take on her hit single, Royals, which has been viewed over 15.3 million times, as her “favourite”.  PMJ recently performed a ‘30s jazz remake of Elle King’s Ex’s & Oh’s for MTV UK – click HERE to watch.

The group's accomplishments have earned them praise from a plethora of media outlets, including Mashable, which wrote, “Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox are all about reimagining music and framing it in beautiful new ways. Entertainment Weekly wrote, “Scott Bradlee’s group is known for retro-fying modern hit songs into viral success.” Yahoo! Music added, “if you’ve been on YouTube in the last couple of years, then you’re familiar with the everything-new-is-old-again brilliance of the viral phenomenon known as Postmodern Jukebox”.

Bradlee, the creator and mastermind behind the group, has turned Postmodern Jukebox into a juggernaut by building an incredible grassroots movement around the act. He continues to pick the songs, create the arrangements and shows, and put together the casts for every tour - which includes several notable names alongside some phenomenal undiscovered talent. The group releases a new video every week, each one shot in the casual environment of Bradlee’s living room. A very busy man these days, Bradlee splits his time between producing new videos in Los Angeles and traveling the globe to manage his tours.

"I posted the first video in 2009,” recalls Bradlee. “I was broke and living in Queens, NY. Seven years later, we’ve amassed 2 million subscribers, we’ve sold out shows across four continents and we’ve become a showcase for an incredible group of performers. Every single one of our cast members has unique superpowers and I take pride in putting together the best combination of abilities and personalities to create an amazing experience for our fans. We want them to escape reality and join us for the most sensational 1920s party this side of The Great Gatsby. We want them to experience what it was like to be at the New Years' Eve show that Sinatra would have hosted in the 1940s. We want them to feel the excitement of hearing the greats of Motown live and up close… and a Postmodern Jukebox show is the only place you can experience all of this and more in one night.”

Don’t miss your chance to catch Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox live.
