Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox Took Mankato's Favorite Songs Back In Time

November 05, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

If you hadn't heard of Postmodern Jukebox before, you might just be living under a rock.  They made a stop on their current tour in Mankato, MN at the Verizon Center Grand Hall on Saturday, November 4th, 2017.  This talented group takes your favorite hits over the years, including current hits, and puts their own spin on each one.  Songs like Bruno Mars' "That's What I Like", Radiohead's "Creep", and Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" get a jazz, ragtime, or swing feel to them and each song amazes when they start singing.  It is quite fantastic to hear each song they play in such a different way.

The songs themselves may be different, but the singers take it up a notch since each of them had such a wide vocal range and all of them sounded spot on.  The stage was full of musicians during the entire show including a sax, trombone, piano, bass, and drums player.  There was even a guy that came out to tap dance occasionally!  It was a night of very enjoyable performances by the group and all 5 of the singers.  Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox was fun to watch live and it was nice to see them perform after watching so many of their YouTube videos!
