In preparation for Post Modern Jukebox’s upcoming March 6 live show at the Orlando Dr. Phillips Center, we are bringing the PMJ vintage music video series to the big screen at Stardust Video and Coffee, curating a mix of their very best and maybe taking a few requests as well. A full stage rear screen projection will produce a virtual cabaret show using a curated mix of individual PMJ music videos.  Like a jazz club, not a concert. No cover, no admission.

You are probably already familiar with the band, as they have put out more than 25 albums and have been touring all over the world for many years now. They played the Dr. Phillips last spring and will have another show there March 6. Primarily they produce covers of modern songs in different eras, often 20s jazz, swing, and ragtime. It is musically very well crafted and it has incredible vocal performances. The videos are beautifully shot with vintage costumes and sets.
