Just when you thought you'd give up on the Journey song, "Don't Stop Believin'", the talented mind behind the group Postmodern Jukebox may just make you rethink that. That's because the band's creator and founder, pianist Scott Bradlee, just brought on a bunch of guest musicians that makes it cool to blast "Don't Stop Believin'" through your speakers again.
The band Postmodern Jukebox, which was founded in 2011 by Bradlee, blends together a 21st century dance party with the rustic feel of old time jazz, reimagining modern pop and rock hits into various styles. And, trust us, this version of "Don't Stop Believin'" is one that will be OK to listen to without thinking of a smokey karaoke bar.
See, we told you that Postmodern Jukebox is making it cool to work hard to get your fill... of Journey, that is. And it gives us all an idea at just how talented Scott Bradlee and the abundance of musicians he plays with on the track really are. So, take that, all you Steve Perry wannabes who have zero musical talent, yet still find it necessary to try and belt out those high notes when it's a bar's karaoke night. Seriously, there's almost nothing worse.
Next time you hear "Don't Stop Believin'", we really hope you think of this Postmodern Jukebox version — which almost naturally makes you tap your feet and snap your fingers to — rather than some drunken co-worker at the company holiday party slurring the words and trying to get everyone to sing it back with her. See, Scott Bradlee is just making music great again, one classic rock hit at a time.
With more than than 870 million YouTube views and over 1.2 million likes on the group's Facebook page, it's pretty easy to see why Scott Bradlee and his Postmodern Jukebox continue to sell out spots all around the globe. The group is currently finishing up their U.S. and European 2017 tours with dates through mid-December, as well as two shows at Los Angeles' Walt Disney Concert Hall on New Years Eve. After the holidays, they kick off their 2018 world tour on January 20, so make sure to check out more dates and details.
