WHO ARE THEY: With its intricate vocal harmonies and doo-wop approach, The Four Seasons became one of the most successful groups of the 1960s. Lead singer Frankie Valli’s signature falsetto became the trademark of the group that recorded hits such as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Dawn,” “Rag Doll” and “Let’s Hang On.” While many American groups presenting a clean-cut, somewhat corny image fell prey to the more hip British Invasion, The Four Seasons managed to survive. In fact, while The Beatles dominated the charts in 1964, The Four Seasons scored three hit singles. Valli launched a solo career in the late 1960s, scoring a No. 2 single with “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You.” Later Valli hits included “My Eyes Adored You,” “Swearin’ To God,” “Our Day Will Come” and “Grease.”
WHAT TO EXPECT: Jersey boy Frankie Valli has been performing since his youth and shows no signs of stopping. He has scored hit records as a solo artist and with The Four Seasons. Fans will be singing and clapping along to gems such as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” and “Grease” this weekend at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. Although many years have passed since Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons were singing on street corners, they’ve still got the vocal chops to make audiences feel like it’s the 1960s all over again.
SHOW INFO: Tickets are $69 and $85, and the shows begin 9 p.m. Friday, April 11, and Saturday, April 12, at Borgata’s Music Box.
