Scott Bradlee is a music producer that started making videos with diverse musicians covering pop songs in different genres of music (Big Band, Jazz, and Swing). The videos became viral ...which lead to albums ...which lead to a tour. A very talented backing band, exceptional singers, and one remarkable tap dancer make up the current touring version of Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox.

Joey Cook, a contestant from the fourteenth season of American Idol, was very charming. She performed a 1920's era version of Plain White T's "Hey There Delilah" complete with an accordion solo. You almost felt like you were being transported back to time despite her blue hair.
Sadly Haley Reinhart, the singer in a large majority of their videos, was not along for this part of the tour. Malya Sykes, a contestant from The Voice season seven, competently took her place. Her haunting jazz version of Radiohead's "Creep" really brought out the profound lyrics. Of course, my favorite was her New Orleans Style version of The Darkness' "I Believe in a Thing Called Love." She delivered a female perspective to the song singing, "I want to kiss you every minute, every hour, every day."

During an after concert nightcap at a nearby tavern the original version of The Darkness "I Believe in a Thing Called Love" started to play to my amusement. (What are the odds.) Bringing the evening to a full circle.
