SCOTT BRADLEE'S POST MODERN JUKEBOX

METRO THEATRE

 

 

Nice Events & Mister Dibley presents:


SCOTT BRADLEE's POSTMODERN JUKEBOX


- Australia/New Zealand tour 2015 -

Following a sold out tours across the US and the UK, Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox have announced their first Australian tour – to arrive on our shores in September 2015.

29th August Powerstaion, Auckland
30th August Bodega, Wellington
2nd September Panthers, Newcastle
3rd September Metro Theatre, Sydney
4th September Anitas, Wollongong
5th September The Tivoli, Brisbane
6th September GC Arts Centre, Gold Coast
9th September The Forum, Melbourne
10th September HQ, Adelaide
11th September The Astor, Perth

There is a very good possibility that you may have seen or heard of the terrific musical collective known as Postmodern Jukebox on an array of social media platforms. These clever and talented performances have likely shown up on Facebook walls, twitter pages and more, no doubt captioned with glowing praises for their uncanny ability to take a contemporary pop hit and reincarnate it into a superb, vintage-flavored songbook standard from the last century.

Imagine a Beyoncé, Britney Spears or Taylor Swift song reworked as if they were earmarked for Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, or Nina Simone and accompanied by a rousing mini-big band that sounds like a cheekier Benny Goodman Orchestra on Red Bull.

After their cover of Miley Cyrus’ "We Can't Stop" racked up over 12 Million views on YouTube, Bradlee and his revolving door of seemingly endless talent have become the go-to YouTube channel for music you have to hear. Last month Postmodern Jukebox reached over 2 million subscribers on YouTube and amassed over 232 million views. They have recently been turning Taylor Swift into vintage cabaret with their take on Blank Space, jazzing up Meghan Trainor’s All About the Bass, adding a 70’s soul vibe to Backstreet Boys I Want It that Way plus making a powerful vocal/piano version of Hozier’s Take Me To Church.

Just like with their popular videos, each song in PMJ's live concert bridges the gap between generations, providing fresh, yet familiar-sounding tunes that appeals to all ages. Influential website npr.com
describes Post Modern Jukebox as ‘a vintage filter on today’s Top 40’ whilst Mashable.com 
calls it a ‘viral music empire ... making original content that everyone knows the words to.” Writers and reviewers across the world agree that this is one musical experience that transcends the ages and should not be missed.

SATURDAY 5th SEPTEMBER

 

GANGSTERS' BALL - Metro Theatre

 

So what exactly is the Gangsters’ Ball?



Well for starters it is not a sit-down dinner or theatre show. It is a faithful recreation of a 1930’s style Speakeasy Club, so you can walk around the venue, dance, gamble, get your hair & makeup done at the styling parlour, have your portrait taken at the photo booth, grab a cocktail or two and mingle with your friends. We encourage attendees to partake in every aspect of the show and experience all the fun and mayhem of 1930’s & 40's entertainment and culture.



VIP ticket holders will be treated to gourmet canapés and decadent treats in their exclusive VIP viewing areas.



Each year over 3,000 Mobsters, Molls and Flappers step back in time to a bygone era. An era when men wore three-piece suits, fedora hats and silk ties, women wore feathers, furs and pill box hats, big bands ruled the airwaves and gangsters ruled the streets.



The Gangsters’ Ball is 5hrs of interactive and non-stop entertainment where the audience is as much a part of the show as the performers. Featuring the biggest names in Cabaret, Sideshow Vaudeville, Burlesque, Magic, Illusion and Big Band Swing, it is an event like no other and one not to be missed.



Every show also features one of Australia’s best Swing Bands, Swing/Rock 'n' Roll DJ’s, The Gambling Den - with Poker, Roulette and Black Jack tables, Pin-up models, merchandise stalls, cocktail bars, vintage styling parlour, photo booth and much, much more...

Sydney Rock ‘n’ Roll & Alternative Market

Sunday, 13 September 2015

Manning Bar & Manning House
1 Manning Road, University of Sydney

Doors open 10.30am

Vintage vultures will not want to miss the spring Sydney Rock 'n' Roll & Alternative Market on Sunday, September 13 at Manning Bar & Manning House, University of Sydney. Along with all the usual fabulous stalls and outstanding live entertainment, we proudly present our special showcase event, ‘Devoted to Vintage’!
Retro-fit your house, or yourself, with bygone buys of stunning vintage fashion and wares. Flaunt your most head-turning retro look for a chance to get spotted by our roaming models and enter the Vintage Best Dressed Competition, hosted by pin-up queen Pia Andersen from Vintage Allsorts. Retro rev-heads can get their rocks off at our classic and vintage vehicle display.

Two areas within the market will be devoted to Vintage, with plenty of rare items to be found, whilst regular stalls will display their usual have-to-have items – retro, rock’n’roll, alternative and unique fashion, jewellery, homewares, accessories, artwork, tikis, collectables, vinyl records, cult DVDs, the ever-popular retro hair and make-up stylists, plus more.

When you’re not admiring the mesmerising merch at Sydney’s most unique shopping event and coolest hangout, you can hit the dancefloor at the Manning Bar or kick back with retro tunes in the sunny Tiki Bar and food court. Beginners’ rockabilly dance lessons are on again this market (details below) plus there’s a café, bars, and giant outdoor games to thrill the kids.

This market’s live line-up features…
Papa Pilko & the Binrats – With their red-hot album Till The End Of The Road just unleashed, market favourites Cyrus Pilko and the boys are back with their voodoo soul, wild blues and slick, swingin' alt country rock‘n’ roll.

Hank’s Jalopy Demons – The musical reprobates from Melbourne are out to thrill with their expert renditions of pure, unadulterated rockabilly, late 50s garage, rock’n’roll and hillbilly.

Kieron McDonald Combo – These cats from down south are the real deal, delivering authentic wild rockabilly, hillbilly bop and rock’n’roll in the traditional 50s style.

Cruisin’ Deuces – Born out of a love of traditional honky-tonk, western swing and rockabilly, this band brings the sounds of Texas, Memphis and Nashville to Sydney for one hell of a hootenanny.


DJs – Limpin’ Jimmy & the Swingin’ Kitten, Rod Almighty, The Crimplenes and Andy Travers.

MC – Limpin’ Jimmy.

Rockabilly Dancing Lessons: If you’ve always wanted to give rockabilly dancing a try, there’ll be a class for beginners at the market between 10.45 and 11.45am - with teachers Limpin’ Jimmy & the Swingin’ Kitten. It’s just $11 per class, which includes entry to the market. No need to bring a dance partner – just plenty of energy and your best dancing shoes! Pre-registration for classes is required. Email Bruce at enquiries@swingoutsydney.com  to register.

Entry to the Sydney Rock 'n' Roll & Alternative Market is $6, with kids under 12 FREE. Nowhere else in Sydney offers this much bang for your buck.
