Postmodern Jukebox: Bridging the gap between generations
Posted on 02/16/2017
Never one for awkward small social gatherings I was not sure what to expect by going to the pre-show Concerts & Cocktails party for Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox but I figured I might as well see what it was all about. It was not as awkward as I had expected it to be. The food was awesome and it was cool to have a chance to meet some of the people who were also there to see the show. It was a perfect start to an amazing night.
I had no clue who or what Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox was when I first saw the show on the schedule. I had to look them up online to find out who they were, but once I saw who they were I was I knew I had to go. My brother had mentioned them a few times and I figured it was about time to see what they were all about. It was the best choice I’ve made this year so far.
It was shocking to see how many people were from an older generation there, but it was also really cool because it created a bridge between the two generations. The show open with Robin Adele Anderson singing “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen and was followed by Dani Armstrong singing “Toxic” by Britney Spears. Casey Abrams had the audience in stiches with his antics on stage before singing “I’m Not the Only One” by Sam Smith. Brielle Von Hugel sang her heart out doing “Grenade” by Bruno Mars. After that it was a whirl wind of crowd favorites as the audience was dazzled with the talent of the performers, such as Chloe Feoranzo, Mario Jose, and even Scott Bradlee himself. At the end of the day, I have to admit, the person who truly stole the show was Tim the Tambourine Guy. He was everywhere on stage at once and was just a ball of energy. I have no clue how he was able to jump, dance, shuffle, and twirl his way back and forth across the stage.
It was an amazing experience for the whole family and I would recommended taking a chance to see this band to anyone who gets a chance. To be able to do what they did, going from a band on YouTube to touring around the world. I wish I could write more about all the amazing artists that preformed that night, it was truly an amazing concert.
