Many bands have been formed in a garage, but this one was created in a basement: in this case in the basement of the house of the New York pianist Scott Bradlee in Queens with a few musician friends who liked to play the hits of the moment rearranged in various musical genres. In 2009, Scott had the idea to post the video of a session on Youtube in which they played the repertoire of the Canadian group Nickelback on 1960s arrangements. “A Motown Tribute to Nickelback” – the video was a smash. Encouraged by this initial success, Scott Bradlee created his own Youtube channel and formed the Postmodern Jukebox where different musicians and vocalists took turns. Shortly later, their doo wop cover of Miley Cyrus’s “We Can't Stop” resulted in the combo gaining popularity thanks to some 4 million views. Radiohead’s “Creep” shattered the Internet with 19 million views! Since then, PMJ has been posting a new video practically every week, always from the very cozy basement of Scott’s house. “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore is given a jazz swing from the 1920s. “Die Young” by Ke$ha is performed on the banjo in a country and western style. Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, the White Stripes, the Strokes, Oasis have all been restyled. PMJ respects nothing, and net surfers love it. With 2 million subscribers and 500 million views, the group has finally decided to come out of its basement in Queens. They’re clamored for on four continents, and since then they have been spreading their love of the hits accommodated to the vintage sauce.
