Lo­cal gig for Scott’s Juke­box jivers


MI­LEY CYRUS’s We Can’t Stop is quite pos­si­bly the most un­likely song to be turned into a doo wop num­ber.

But Scott Bradlee and his col­lec­tion of per­form­ers known as the Post­mod­ern Juke­box did just that and it was a vi­ral sen­sa­tion.

The 33-year-old New Yorker has be­come some­thing of an in­ter­net sen­sa­tion with his retro cov­ers of mod­ern songs rack­ing up mil­lions of hits on YouTube and thou­sands of down­loads of his 10 al­bums.

Now he is hit­ting the road in bring­ing the Post­mod­ern Juke­box to Aus­tralia.

“One of the ex­cit­ing things about what we do is get­ting to travel all over the world,” Bradlee said.

“We have wanted to come to Aus­tralia for a while be­cause of the fans there.”

They play The Tivoli on Septem­ber 5.
