WARSAW BIWEEKLY CONCERTS GUIDE (April 30 – May 13)

Warsaw is not only Chopin, opera and ballet.

MONDAY 30.04

1) Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox

As Bradlee said “We want our fans to forget about reality for a moment and join a party like the 1920s in the style of Gatsby. We want them to feel like it was to participate in New Year’s Eve in 1940, hosted by Frank Sinatra … and the Postmodern Jukebox show is the only place where you can experience it all in one night!”. So try to imagine the hits of the last years in doo-wop style!
