Oh, what a story. Frankie Valli, who came to fame in 1962 as the lead singer of the Four Seasons, is hotter than ever in the 21st century. Thanks to the volcanic success of the Tony- winning musical Jersey Boys, which chronicles the life and times of Frankie and his legendary group, such classic songs as “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Rag Doll,” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” are all the rage all over again.

From 1962 to 1978, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons sold more than 100 million records. After “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” came two more Top 40 solo hits: “I Make a Fool of Myself” and “To Give (the Reason I Live).” But unlike many lead singers who achieve solo success, leave their groups and never look back, Frankie stayed with the Four Seasons, producing hits in two parallel careers. While Frankie flourished solo, the Four Seasons stayed in the Top 40 with “C’mon Marianne,” “Watch the Flowers Grow,” and a remake of “Will You Love Me Tomorrow.”

In 1975 Frankie came roaring back with “My Eyes Adored You,” which reached No. 1, “Swearin’ to God,” and a cover of “Our Day Will Come.” The majority of the 71 chart hits of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons (including 40 in the Top 40, 19 in the Top 10 and eight No. 1’s) came during the 1960s, but the music didn’t just disappear. He has toured almost continuously since 1962, and his songs have been omnipresent in such movies as The Deer Hunter, Dirty Dancing, Mrs. Doubtfire, Conspiracy Theory and The Wanderers.

The excitement of Jersey Boys being in its seventh blockbuster year on Broadway, prompted Frankie to salute the decade that made him a star with his first new studio album in 15 years. In Romancing The ’60s, he put his own stamp on some of his favorite ’60s songs, the ones he always wanted to record but somehow got away. The set includes unforgettable new versions of such gems as “Spanish Harlem,” “Call Me,” and “Take Good Care of My Baby,” and features a guest appearance by four young stars of Jersey Boys, providing background vocals for “On Broadway.”

For as far into the future as anyone can see, Jersey Boys will introduce the music of Frankie Valli to new generations. The man himself shows no signs of slowing down. For as long as he wants to sing, people will want to listen. Make your plans to join us for this fun-filled evening of music!
