Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox apparently can't stay away from South Florida. The genre-bending jazz troupe will perform on Thursday, Oct. 20, at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.
Tickets for the New York group's third stop in South Florida in 11 months go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, May 8, via Ticketmaster.com, BrowardCenter.org and phone, 954-462-0222. Presales begin 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 4. Passes cost $39.50-$52, $143.50 for VIP and $201-$235 for an artist meet-and-greet package.
The announcement of Postmodern Jukebox's 45-date North American tour falls just one day after their riotous performance at SunFest 2016 on May 1. During that Sunday afternoon set, Bradlee, on piano, cycled through covers of Radiohead's "Creep" and debuted a new cover, a ragtimey spin on Notorious B.I.G.'s hip-hop classic "Juicy," remade with throwback scat-singing instead of rapping.
After forming in 2013, Bradlee's jazzy collective went YouTube-famous the same year for its retro arrangement of Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop," remade as a doo-wop cover on the day after the singer's infamous twerk at the MTV Video Music Awards.
They've since made other Top 40 songs sound old-fashioned (and listenable), including Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" as a smoldering lounge cover; and Justin Bieber's current Billboard chart-topper "Love Yourself" as a 1920s New Orleans ragtime tune.
