Postmodern Jukebox gave their first concert in Romania on Sunday, May 29, at the Bucharest Palace Hall. The concert was part of the band’s global tour.
With over 1.5 million subscribers on YouTube and almost 400 million views, Postmodern Jukebox emerged overnight, from the depths of the internet, their success story being the dream of any debutant. They started off from a video shot with the sound volume at a minimum, so as not to disturb the neighbours, in the living room of Scott Bradlee, the brain behind the Postmodern Jukebox project. Now the band is taking part in a global tour, giving concerts in North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
PMJ thrilled the thousands of fans present at the show in Bucharest with contemporary pop hits transformed, in the typical PMJ style, into superb vintage sounds, creating a special atmosphere for well over 2 hours. The 5 soloists and the musical instruments used – piano, double bass, drums, saxophone, flute, trombone, clarinet – fully contributed to it. Dancer Sarah Reich gave a special touch to the show.
Among the songs performed by PJM, we mention: “Burn” – a cover by Ellie Goulding; “Sweet Child O’Mine” – a cover by Guns N’Roses and also “My heart will go on” – a cover by Celine Dion.
At the end of the show, the band promised to return to Romania for new concerts.
