Scott Bradlee has taken an ensemble of artists from every walk of life, and created a magical performance that will get the little kids rocking in their seats;  the more mature crowd snapping their fingers, and even get some up to dance like they did generations ago. When it comes to Postmodern Jukebox (PMJ), some may initially see it as a cover band.

Once you dive into their extensive YouTube video collection, you will realize they are far from it. The band started back in 2014 in New York City. Their popularity grew as they began to put out a classic twist on today’s modern songs. PMJ has covered everything from Lady Gaga to Nickelback, and has an impressive 3.6 million followers on their YouTube channel.

From the drop of the lights to the very last note, the crowd was put at the edge of their seats in anticipation to the next mesmerizing song, jaw-dropping solo tap dance routine, or even a bit of comedy to transition from one act to the next.

Will Jay set the stage with a thrilling performance from the king of pop himself, Michael Jackson, as he performed “Thriller” to the tune of something you’d hear come from the Rat Pack.

The sultry Martina DaSilva captivated the audience with her strong presence, where not even a “Seven Nation Army” could hold her back.

Natalie Angst caught the eye of everybody in her 50’s era, body-length dresses, as if she were Patti Page, and captivated everybody’s ears with her take on Cyndi Lauper’sTime After Time.” Casey Abrams was the host for the night and kept everybody focused on the show as the acts changed, kept everybody upbeat and included in the show; even at one point serenading a front-row man to the tune of “Let’s Get It On.

Miche Braden stole the show with her remarkable range, undoubting stage presence, and the full spectrum of emotions you could see, hear, and feel with every note sang and every movement of her body.

The show was fittingly closed out with Casey Abrams’ take on Radiohead’s 90’s classic, “Creep,” that had half the crowd singing along.

We all love our songs, but sometimes when heard in a different light, a song can take new shape and meaning, giving us a different take on a song we have heard dozens, or hundreds of time.
