Taking the music of the last two decades, this show twisted current hits into the musical styles of the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s. As well as twisting new to old, we also flipped some old classics on their head.

This show was inpired by the New York based Postmodern Jukebox, led by frontman Scott Bradlee. Postmodern Jukebox posts weekly covers of recent pop songs with jazz or other genre variations. In January 2016, their channel surpassed 400 million views, and the group tours worldwide.

Join us around the jukebox for a trip down memory lane, or at least how memory lane could have sounded…
