We re-create the music of today in the style of yesteryear using Scott Bradlee’s PostModern Jukebox (PMJ) as our inspiration.

Modern Vintage Dance Band are a covers band like no other. Channeling our retrogressive vibe, we re-create the music of today in the style of yesteryear using the insanely successful Scott Bradlee’s PostModern Jukebox (PMJ) as our inspiration. Featuring eight of some of the most accomplished musicians on the Scottish and British scene, the bands’ artistry and fun will never fail to impress. Featuring virtuoso performances interjected with love, subtlety and a dollop of good old fashioned fun, MVDB are sure to provide the energy and feel to make your event go with a swing to be remembered! Hark back to the times when musicians and bands played completely live, no autotune, no backing tracks, just pure performance.
