Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox has become a viral pop sensation by reworking contemporary hits into radically different vintage genres, from pop into ‘50s doo-wop, electronic into Irish folk, hip hop into ‘20s jazz, and more. In their debut at Longwood Gardens, this band will prove that everything new can be old again.
