Experience your favorite hits in vintage style with Postmodern Jukebox, coming Saturday, October 20 to Rose-Hulman’s Hatfield Hall.

Imagine taking modern hits by artists such as Miley Cyrus, The Strokes, Katy Perry and Jet and serving them up with the rhythm, mystique and flavor of the Roaring 20s and you’ll have the unique musical sensation known as Postmodern Jukebox.

Only a handful of tickets remain for the group's show on Saturday, October 20, at Hatfield Hall. Postmodern Jukebox has become a global internet phenomenon featuring uber-talented vocalists, including a raft of American Idol stars, covering contemporary hits in a distinctly jazz, ragtime and swing era-style.

“PMJ’s bespoke vintage arrangements of modern songs connect us to a different time when songs were cool and the performers were even cooler,” says Dan Tryon, Hatfield Hall manager and director of student performing arts.

Dubbed a “worldwide musical sensation” by National Rock Review, Postmodern Jukebox has changed the face of the music industry since its founding in New York City eight years ago in the apartment of jazz pianist and arranger Scott Bradlee.

While PMJ has released several albums, it is best known for its frequent, often viral, YouTube videos featuring sensational vocalists and virtuosic musicians performing hits by modern artists in often quirky, jazz-era costumes and settings. A few of their more popular videos include Puddles, the sad clown, singing hits such as Lorde’s “Royals” or “Stressed Out” by Twenty One Pilots.

Seats for the Hatfield Hall performance are nearly sold out, but the theater has made a few tickets available for last-minute buyers. VIP packages are also still available, including premium seating, a commemorative laminated access pass to meet the artists, a photo opportunity after the show, and an exclusive limited edition tour poster.

With 3.6 million subscribers and counting, Postmodern Jukebox boasts more than 1 billion individual views on YouTube. Some of their most popular hits include covers of Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass,” “Creep” by Radiohead and “Dream On” by Aerosmith.
