Starting out as the bedroom project of jazz pianist Scott Bradlee and rapidly growing into a viral and real-world sensation, the US group’s vintage-pop mash ups have racked up over 811 million YouTube views and brought their rotating roster of top-class session musicians into the limelight and onto sold out worldwide tours, building a huge UK following in the process.
Imagine marrying the 21st century party vibe of Miley Cyrus or the minimalist angst of Radiohead with the crackly warmth of a vintage 78 or the plunger-muted barrelhouse howl of a forgotten Kansas City jazzman. Bradlee’s choice of material ranges from the 80’s hard rock of Guns ‘N’ Roses to hits as recent as Taylor Swift’s controversial Look What You Made Me Do. They’re rendered by a rotating cast of musicians and singers in fashions that date back to a time when Axl, Slash and T-Swift’s parents had yet to be born – a time of street corner harmonies and torch singers, blues belters and golden-voiced crooners.
‘surprises, an abundance of talent, fun, variety, glamour, laughter and its one great big ball of fun. This is a PMJ show and they love every second that they get to shine. PMJ are a wonderful collection of musicians and performers, who show what real talent is all about’ Entertainment Focus
‘saucy, sassy, stylish, and a with steady slew of some of the biggest pop songs in recent memory, a night out with Scott Bradlee and his cadre of musical powerhouses spells just one thing – a guaranteed party’ MTV
