PAC Performance Review: Postmodern Jukebox

(New Philadelphia, Ohio) – The latest performance at the PAC brought the roaring 20s to 2019!

Another Newsymom reviewer is raving about the latest show at the Performing Arts Center at Kent State University at Tuscarawas! “Things really heated up tonight inside. Postmodern Jukebox brought the 20s into 2019 and covered all the hits,” said Rebecca Marchino.

The PAC continues to push the limits of Tuscarawas County’s comfort zone with truly memorable and impact performances that leave the audience wowed and wanting more! Rebecca has sent a challenge to Newsymom readers…come out and experience something you’ve never heard of!

Created by Scott Bradlee, the rotating collective of Postmodern Jukebox has spent the past few years amassing more than 690 million YouTube views and 2.6 million subscribers, performed on “Good Morning America,” topped iTunes and Billboard charts and played hundreds of shows to packed-house crowds around the world. As NPR put it, they’ve done this by “taking current Top 40 hits and re-imagining them as coming from older eras of popular music.”

In one such remake, Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox turned Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” into a doo-wop ditty that’s garnered nearly 17 million views. Last year, they envisioned Radiohead’s alt-rock hit “Creep” as a torch-like ballad that’s racked up over 30 million views and was named one of the “9 Best Viral Cover Videos of 2015” by People magazine. Multi-Grammy winning artist Lorde praised Postmodern Jukebox’s vintage take on her hit single, “Royals,” which has been viewed over 18 million times, as her “favorite.”

The PAC continues to offer shows you don’t want to miss. But don’t just take our word for it…see for yourself!
