Postmodern Jukebox’s claim to fame is their clever re-imagining of popular tunes as jazz and swing numbers. For their Christmas show, you can expect the old carols and yuletide tunes to receive a similar treatment. Dressed in retro fashions like fur coats and dazzling gowns, the group evokes Roaring Twenties vibes as they jazz up contemporary Christmas songs like “Santa Baby,” Feliz Navidad,” and “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” In addition to the jazzy instrumentation and captivating vocals, you might see some fancy footwork and percussive tap-dancing to accompany a few numbers.
While their unique take on cover tunes makes for delightful listening, the band has earned a dedicated following with their stylish performance and incredible musicianship. From the beginning, the group has been a revolving door of undiscovered talent, and the regular recordings and tours allow gifted musicians to reach massive audiences with their skills. From the emcee’s charisma to the soaring vocals of powerhouse singer Maiya Sykes, the band delivers an engaging experience both online and on stage.
Old-Fashioned Music, Digital Stardom
What started as a basement jam project in New York has skyrocketed into an international phenomenon. The group began posting their jazz-flavored pop covers on
YouTube around 2009, garnering some considerable attention. In 2012, Robyn Anderson fronted a cover of Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop,” and the video quickly racked up over one million views within a week. Their first album, Introducing Postmodern Jukebox, enjoyed warm praise in the press, and the act has gone on to recruit a host of fresh talent as they continue to post weekly videos and travel the world.
