HOYT SHERMAN SHOW
This show was amazing! The musicians and artists are incredible. The range of their voices and the creativity they use with making this music a truly new song is phenomenal. Don't hesitate to purchase tickets now or in the future. It is SO worth every penny. And Hoyt Sherman is such a fabulous venue!

I really enjoyed last nights performance at Count Basie. I especially enjoyed the two singing sisters whom I hadn’t heard before. They each had strong and unique singing voices, and at times it was like witnessing one of the TV singing competition shows. Entertaining and well done to all!

WATCH SOME VIDEOS BEFORE YOU GO
This show is not for everybody, just those who like incredibly talented live vocalists backed by a band with horns, electric guitar, drums, and of course, piano. "Tambourine Guy" was a welcomed addition, since I have seen his excited puppy-like energy in most of the videos online. Scott Bradlee was not on piano and the line-up was not exactly as advertised, but it was very good and wildly entertaining. Michael Cunio was the MC and while he can scream like a Jack Black-fronted rock band, he can deliver at all levels. I am thoroughly surprised he is not touring with Queen, since he can do a solid Freddie Mercury, which is not easy. I apologize for not having their names here, but the expected sirens of song lit up the stage and other male guests appeared from recent talent contests, which is to be expected with a touring company. The tap dancing was fun and adds a quirky energy that keeps the show light and entertaining. A Morgan James video introduced me to PMJ, so I came to see the sirens or torchlight songs, but did not expect the live show to be exactly like the videos anyway. I brought three guests who had no idea what they were getting into. They were blown away and are now advocates for PMJ. Keep them coming (and see if you can get Morgan to tour next year!).

TOP LEVEL, PROFESSIONAL, AMAZING VOICES, AND TAP DANCING TO BOOT !
What a fantastic show. The band was very connected and right on with the tunes. From Lady Gaga, Buggles, Isley brothers, and . All the tunes were jazzed up 20's style. Admittingly being a fan of PMJ helps, but for a noob this is an excellent introduction of an up and coming band that will blow your socks off. The lead singers had spectacular voices. The only thing that takes it away is the screaming of some of the high notes by the MC. Morgan James would have given it 6 stars - lol. A must see !!!

Terrific show . With over 300 musicians and singers that are part of the PMJ family you have no idea who is going to turn up. They were really well represented and I'm looking forward to their next Toronto visit.

GREAT FOR FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT. FUN SHOW
Enjoyed the FIndlay Marathon Center of the Performing Arts show . The energy was strong and cast impressive. Overall the audience had fun with the cast. Matt Scheil and his tap dancing was impressive and a joy to witness from our 2nd row seating. I will agree with another review that it was loud, and at times lyrics were hard to make out- wasn't sure if it was the venues' acoustics or the sound "man". I don't agree Rogelio was "screaming" though,- a little fine tuning may be necessary , but we enjoyed the energy and musicianship. The vocals were fabulous. Someone stated endings were "predictable" , we enjoyed the vocalists sharing their amazing vocal range- we enjoyed the show.

CRUISE SHIP VARIETY SHOW IS NOT MY THING!
No doubt about it PMJ live at Massey Hall was made up of a group of mostly very talented artists. That being said the show was tough to get through at times. Way too much tap dancing for my taste! One solo and we're good. I appreciate the talent but not when i have to sit through it for so many numbers instead of what i went to see....music. The MC was a real downer for me. He is not a good match for the PMJ brand in my opinion. His style was not in keeping with the theme and his banter was hard to listen to at times, sometimes cheesy and most times out of synch with the show. Take it a step further and I have to say the MC's voice was way too far over the top for me. Screaming high notes that make gospel singers sound timid. Sorry but he brought the show down 2 stats. I cringed whenever he came on stage. Am I a Creep? Nope, just being honest.
Geeh from Los Angeles, California
I was excited to see them at the Long Beach Convention Center on Nov 24th, since I've watched them on YouTube, but was totally disappointed... their artists were so limited, and you don't need to announce every single performer... announcer was cheesy, boring, and just a waste of time... and to add to this...why too much tap dancing...i came to listen to great performers singing famous songs on the tube, and only recognized two or three...i was expecting more...I'd give it a "B" rating like in the movies... their budget was so cheap🤤😞😠... the three performers you pick for the show aren't your best ones!!! And what was that guy with tambourine who kept popping between performance every now and then... so corny😡 🤢

TORONTO ROY THOMPSON HALL
I was disappointed with the host, he was way over the top with his cat like screeching. The female singers were excellent as were the band members. I did enjoy the tap dancer, a breath of fresh air. And the bonus, she could juggle. This was my first PMJ concert and will not attend another.
Amelia from Toronto, Ontario
I found the music was too loud, RTH has awesome acoustics and there was no need for it to be so loud. Tap dancing was very good, I just wish they had Morgan, Miche or Casey with them and Scott you are so much better on the ivories than the guy you had in Toronto

PMJ SHOW HIJACKED
Not sure what happened. The show at times was turned into a HardRock format done 1920's style with the MC SCREAMING his lyrics. This I was not expecting. SCOTT BRADLEYS PMJ format somehow got hijacked and it was not for the better. The MC can sing and performs well, so whats up with the RockStar routine????? The rest of the singers were awesome and true to form in the tradition of PMJ. I watched many videos on PMJ and was not expecting a change of venue (disappointing). Ohhh and the Tap Dancing was phenomenal but way too much of it, I was their to listen to the PMJ BRAND OF MUSIC. PMJ Brand needs to get back on track to their original formula SILKY SMOOTH SINGING LIKE THE 1920's. This show last night was at times on track and awesome, other times with the MC singing it became a 1920's ROCKSHOW full of screaming and way too loud. PLEASE Scott Bradley, gain back control of PMJ.
Wendy from Toronto
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.

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!

20'S POST MODERN JUKEBOX
Was my favorite group...listen on Facebook all the time...but was so disappointed in the performance in Findlay, Ohio. The emcee screamed the songs...decibel range was 110...was so loud that it was hard to understand the words of any performance songs except for about 3 ballads. All songs had predictable endings with vocal gymnastics over the top...the instrumental musicians were excellent but again, hard to enjoy because of the volume...just was not necessary.
