CL Critic Kevin C. Madigan Recommends:    This is not just any old cover band. What began as a bunch of friends jamming in a Queens basement in 2011 now    features 70 different performers and and has  toured  six continents. Pianist and arranger Scott Bradlee came up with the idea of fusing contemporary pop hits with classic singers of the past, forming the rotating Postmodern Jukebox ensemble that has to date accumulated more 1.9 billion YouTube views and 5.8 million subscribers. Miley Cyrus got turned into The Platters; Bruno Mars was converted to Frank Sinatra; The Spice Girls morphed into The Andrews Sisters; Guns  ’n’  Roses became Bessie Smith. You get the idea. Under the banner  ”Today’s Hits Yesterday,”  Bradlee and his troupe are stopping by Symphony Hall for one show before jetting off to Ireland the next day as part of yet another world tour. Bradlee, once a struggling musician on the New York City club circuit, is also the author of  Outside The Jukebox: How I Turned My Vintage Music Obsession Into My Dream Gig. -  KCM

From the venue:

When New York City pianist Scott Bradlee created Postmodern Jukebox out of a basement in Queens in 2011, his goal was simple: to remake the pop hits of today into the classic sounds of the legends of yesterday. Miley Cyrus became The Platters. Bruno Mars became Frank Sinatra. The Spice Girls became The Andrews Sisters. Guns “n” Roses became Bessie Smith.

Now, nearly a decade later, Postmodern Jukebox has grown to become a pop culture mainstay in its own right, having played over a thousand shows on six continents worldwide.
