by Michael Quintos - Jul 9, 2019

It is no surprise that Scott Bradlee's inspired and wonderfully genre-crossing creation, Postmodern Jukebox---which recently just finished up its third wildly-received appearance at Orange County's Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa---still garners near sold-out concerts attended by rabid, frenzied fans whose screams of delight are more akin to stadium acts like Shawn Mendes or Taylor Swift. The group's latest concert tour entitled 'Welcome to the Twenties 2.0' is their take on a Jazz-Age revival timed, appropriately enough, as another 20's decade enters into our lives. The concert, thanks to the group's talent and their enthusiastic audience, turned their Costa Mesa stop at the otherwise fancy-pants Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall into a genuine party atmosphere that welcomed everyone of various backgrounds and ages. And hearing Mario Jose's live cover of Radiohead's 'Creep' is worth the price of admission alone.
