Soundcheck: Postmodern Jukebox Returns to Segerstrom Center April 15
By : Christopher Trela
You never know who might be performing any given concert. For the April 15 show, Constantine Maroulis has been recruited to be both emcee and performer. American Idol fans will remember Maroulis from his 2004 appearances on the show, including his show-stopping rendition of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” He went on to a career on Broadway, including earning a Tony Award-nomination for his role in “Rock of Ages.”
“I’ve been a big fan of Scott Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox for many years,” Maroulis told me during a recent phone interview. “Our managers are friends, so Scott and I had a meeting and it took off. I was on their last U.S. tour, and now back on the road as the emcee. What is wonderful about PMJ is that they have eroded the boundaries of where this show can go. It’s nice to be part of the team and see the joy it brings to audiences young and old. People get dressed up. It’s exciting.”
Maroulis said that the lineup for the Segerstrom shows has never been together as a unit before. He could not reveal who was in the show, but said fans will have a great time.
“The energy will be amazing, and I’m excited to be hosting. It’s quite an honor, I’m flattered and humbled by it. I bring some comedy with rock and roll flair.”
