    Postmodern Jukebox

      Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Maroon 5, Radiohead . . . even Bon Jovi! It seems there’s no contemporary (or classic-rock) hit that pianist Scott Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox wouldn’t consider transforming into vintage jazz, soul, Motown, country or doo-wop. Their videos have been viral sensations on the Internet, and they do it all [...]
