10 Decades of Song & Dance!
Platinum Jukebox is a journey of music, song and dance starting with the gramophone in the 1920s and ending with the iPod in the 21st Century.

We start the journey in the 1920s when music from Louis Armstrong and Fred Astaire were the platinum hit songs of the week. The Charleston, The Waltz and The Tango were the dance crazes of the time and this was known as The Golden Era.

In the 1930s and 1940s, both the 331/3 rpm record and the 45rpm single records were invented in an era of peace, depression and then war. Here we celebrate the sounds of Glenn Miller and Marilyn Monroe and dance crazes such as The Swing, Tap Dancing and The Foxtrot.

Jukeboxes gained popularity in the 1950s with rock and roll music topping the charts. Soon we were doing The Jitterbug, The Hand Jive and the Rock ‘n Roll and Boogie Woogie to beat of Elvis, Little Richard and Bill Haley & His Comets.

In the 1960s and 1970s, we saw the mass production of stereo albums, and turntables became affordable. Soon the world was doing The Twist, The Loco-motion and The Funky Chicken to songs like Let’s Twist Again, Shout, I’m a Believer and Proud Mary. In the Seventies everyone was Disco Dancing to songs such as Stayin’ Alive, You Should Be Dancing and Disco Inferno.

In the 1980s - cassette tapes and compact discs were the music format, along with dancing styles such as The Moonwalk, Breakdancing, Latin American Dancing to massive selling icons such as Michael Jackson and bands such as Miami Sound Machine. In the 1990s we encountered our own local is lekka music with music by Brenda Fassie and Mango Groove - while the compact disc remained the flavour of the day.

In the 21st century, the iPod has become the flavour of the day with downloading taking the place of compact discs. Modern dance crazes and music still rule the world, with songs such as Can’t Stop The Feeling by Justin Timberlake and Shut Up And Dance by Walk The Moon.

Platinum Jukebox is a journey of song and dance that covers every dance craze in the history of recorded music. Times have changed and so has music and fashion, but the songs live on forever!
