Songs by the likes of Beyoncé and Maroon 5 will be given a vintage twist at a unique night at the Colston Hall in Bristol.

Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox was founded by pianist and arranger Scott Bradlee in 2009, to mix contemporary pop, rock and R&B hits with the style of yesteryear.

In Bradlee’s own words, the mash up of vintage classics and pop hits is ‘pop music in a time machine’.

He said: “It’s my hope this collection will lead you to discover a world of nostalgia for the music of the past regardless of when you were born and welcome you warmly into our community of amazing live performers, creative artists, and music lovers that are dedicated to keeping real music alive.”

In an evening of eclectic sounds, expect a New Orleans jazz twist on Guns N’ Roses’ Sweet Child Of Mine, while Celine Dion’s My Heart will go on is transformed from a schmaltzy ballad to an R&B tune.

The sounds of Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox will be performed at the Colston Hall on March 20 at 7pm.

Tickets, priced £26.88-118.25, are available from www.colstonhall.org or by calling 01172 034040.
