“Jukebox” has been praised by critics and fans for its broad musical offering and flawless production, being declared “an incredibly addictive evening of entertainment.” The show effortlessly mixes pop classics from their back catalogue with Doo-wop, Motown, Soul standards and more – offering the ultimate playlist – live! HUMAN NATURE’S foursome, Toby Allen, Phil Burton and brothers, Andrew and Mike Tierney, are joined on stage by a dynamic band, The Jukebox All-Stars, and world-class dancers, as they celebrate a mix of musical genres that covers classic hits as well as chart-topping hits of today.
“Jukebox” is not only a playlist of the group’s influences, but some of the most-loved hit songs from the best vocal artists and groups of all time, including “Why Do Fools Fall in Love,” “Stand By Me,” “Unchained Melody,” “Higher and Higher,” “Dance To The Music” and “Under The Boardwalk.” They show that this “Jukebox” plays everything from The Temptations to Timberlake, from The Beatles to Bruno Mars.
