Jhe Washington Center has been teasing patrons with a mystery performer since announcing their season in June. Billed as the “Mystery Show”, tickets sell well even though the performer is a secret. Today the secret has been revealed, Postmodern Jukebox is coming to the Olympia on June 8!

According to Executive Director, Jill Barnes, “Postmodern Jukebox is one of our most requested events in our customer surveys. We are thrilled to finally see them perform on the Washington Center stage in June 2023.”

Scott Bradlee founded Postmodern Jukebox in 2011 with the idea of ​​remaking today’s pop hits into the classic sounds of yesterday’s legends. Miley Cyrus has become The Platters. Bruno Mars became Frank Sinatra. The Spice Girls became the Andrews Sisters. Guns N’ Roses has become Bessie Smith.

More than a decade later, Postmodern Jukebox has become a pop culture mainstay in its own right, having played over a thousand shows on six continents around the world, including acclaimed venues like Radio City Music Hall. , the Sydney Opera House and the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. In the process, Postmodern Jukebox has introduced audiences to many of the world’s greatest singers, dancers and instrumentalists, many of whom have become stars in their own right.

Part celebration of vintage music and culture, part ”Saturday Night Live’ for singers”, a Postmodern Jukebox show is an unforgettable journey through time making pop music history – in your own city native.

As Barnes says, “If you know them, you know their musicianship is sophisticated, polished and fun. If you don’t know them, you certainly know the lyrics to their music. Postmodern Jukebox reinvents contemporary hits and revisits them with vintage flair. From Aerosmith and Bowie to Lady Gaga and The Strokes. I encourage you to put them on your playlist and watch their fantastic music videos online, you will be wowed by their swing, jazz, ragtime originals of your favorite hits.

The Washington Center for the Performing Arts is a nonprofit performance venue whose mission is to inspire audiences and performers of all ages through live performance, thereby enriching the vibrancy of our community.
