This was our third time seeing PMJ in Toronto, and by far the weakest performance. New cast, but so much else was repeated. How many times does the Canadian audience need to hear "My heart will go on"?
Hopefully, next time there will be new content, despite the theme, whatever it may be.

I was eagerly anticipating seeing Postmodern Jukebox at The Palladium in Carmel, IN, after watching many of their YouTube videos. The show we saw was nothing like the terrific performances that the group has posted online. Virtually all of the musicians were different from the ones in the videos and the same with the female performers. The performance we saw needed at least two or three more ladies on stage and two more guys to sing. And I can't believe how much of the show was taken up by the ( extremely talented ) performer tap dancing. By my count he performed at least six times! I have the feeling that they knew they were vastly shorthanded and that they needed to do something to fill up the show in the absence of more female and male performers. The musicians were top-notch, but the show was a bit too dependent on the emcee, who was the only male singer. He is very talented, but he needed much more of a supporting cast. I'll continue watching the terrifically entertaining PMJ videos, but I won't be back to see another live performance.

The sound mixer should listen to the actal sound. All it had going for it was volume. I could hardly hear singers voices. Just volume. Mcee was way over the top and didn’t fit with PMJ style and way too much tap dancing. It was fun to watch but got old after a while. Not great, just okay.

YOU'LL BE SWELL YOU'LL BE GREAT
I left the show singing Ethel Merman, who sang ,and belted but did not scream.
Very talented musicians with showmanship. Singers had powerful voices.
In these troubled times, I would never have opened the show with "Happy Days are here Again". Ouch. Yet, I was transported to a different era when clubs , bands and singers were the go to entertainment.
Tweak the show; turn down the mikes, let those beautiful voices sing out so words can be understood and let the music play on.

GREAT VOICES BUT MOSTLY UNFAMILIAR FACES
I'm a big fan of the YouTube channel and looked forward to this for months to see them in Orlando on 4/3/22. It was fun but somewhat of a mixed bag. The MC was a surprise, funny and great voice. Fantastic musicians but it was disappointing that Scott Bradley was not the guy on piano. I was hoping to see a bigger group of familiar performers from the videos. Instead the show was mostly 3 unknown-to-me (but still amazing) singers plus the multi-talented Gunhild Carling as the only one I recognized.
The tap dancer. Unbelievable skills and 1 or 2 numbers would be perfect. But this was a bit too much, upwards of 20+ minutes of the show was purely tap-dancing. One routine went on for at least 10 minutes solid, no joke.
Some of the musical performances would have benefited from less Tambourine guy. He was funny for a minute but unfortunately he was there far longer than a minute.
Overall it was a fun night but I would not go again unless I knew the line-up ahead of time.

DISAPPOINTING PERFORMANCE IN TORONTO ON AUG 2, 2022
I had seen their videos, which made me buy a ticket for their live performance at Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto. A few good songs (I liked the Spice Girls one), but, as others have already mentioned, too much very loud, overdone shrieking (at one point I was actually plugging my ears) and too much tap-dancing. Most of the songs were unrecognizable to me. I *thought* the music was meant to be arranged to be 1920s-style, but it seemed like a big mashup of...I'm not sure what! The 6-piece band was good. Didn't like the MC's "schtick". I would not return to another PMJ show, based on tonight's experience.

My hubby and I had been very much looking forward to this event for the last few months. This was sadly not the wonderful Postmodern Jukebox that we were expecting. Some of the singing was so 'screechy' and the music was so incredibly loud and overpowering that you couldn't really hear some of the songs. It was supposed to be 1920's themed but we didn't get much of that at all - just lots of ear-piercing noise. In the end, we decided to leave before the encore. Such a shame!
