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.”
