Postmodern Jukebox – The World Tour

It’s hard to believe, but Postmodern Jukebox has only been touring for a little over a year.  In that year, we’ve gone from playing 300 person clubs to 3000 seat theaters and have performed on four continents and in nearly 100 countries.  And, we’re just getting started.

In early 2016, we’ll be doing our biggest tour yet – three months of shows all across the UK and Europe.  We’re also planning upcoming tours of South America, Australia / Asia, and the US.  Our goals are simple: to give everyone in the world the chance to go back in time and experience real, live music with some of the best live performers in the world.  Although dressing your vintage best isn’t mandatory, it sure is encouraged.

I had the idea for the format of a Postmodern Jukebox stage show even before I had the name ‘Postmodern Jukebox.’  I imagined that the best way to present this “alternate universe” would be by modeling it after variety shows from years ago, with an emcee narrating the evening and presenting various acts, who would then perform with the house band.  I remembered watching The Lawrence Welk Show with my grandmother; this would be “Lawrence Welk with 100% more twerking,” as an early version of the script read.

Of course, this means that we bring A LOT of talent with us on the road.  Multiple superstar vocalists, a horn section, a tap dancer, sometimes a very enthusiastic “Tambourine Guy”…every show is a unique production. Postmodern Jukebox isn’t a “band” in the traditional sense of the word; it’s more of a community of performers, and to date we’ve featured more than 40 cast members on the Postmodern Jukebox bandstand.  Some of them have gone on to launch tours of their own and continue to make guest appearances with us; we’ve been described as the “SNL for singers.”

As the creator of the show, I personally arrange all the music and handpick the performers in every cast, kind of the way Wolfgang Puck creates a dish.  That means that while the cast may rotate and change from tour to tour (or even city to city), I can promise that every show will be the best show that you’ve ever seen, with some the most talented performers in the world on that revered PMJ bandstand.  I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    The PMJ show in Fort Lauderdale was one of the finest concerts I’ve ever seen. My eight-year-old daughter loved it so much we bought the new album on the drive back to Naples. She’s hysterical running around the house singing halo in her best falsetto.

  • Eric Brodt

    Saw you guys in Charlotte, NC. It was easily (easily) the best show that I have seen in years. I carry my PMJ key with me on my ring. Everybody asks me what it’s for and I tell them that it’s the key to the best music available. Now you have a website I can direct to which I can direct them. Can’t wait to see you all again.
