December '63 - The Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons Tribute Concert
The music of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons comes to life in this re-creation of a Frankie Valli concert experience. "December '63" showcases all your favorite songs including the one of a kind classics that have been thrilling audiences for decades. Before The Beatles landed on the shores of the United States, The Four Seasons were the most popular band in the country. The British Invasion created a huge shift in American pop music tastes but Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons continued to knock out hits. In 1962, the group released their first album, featuring the single "Sherry,” which was not only their first charted hit but also their first number-one song. "Sherry" was followed by several million-selling hits, including "Big Girls Don’t Cry,” "Walk Like A Man,” "Candy Girl,” and several others. This concert will have you reaching for the high notes as the cast and band take you on musical journey with stops at every phase of the careers of Frankie and the boys. Come on out and enjoy a night of timeless classics! For more information and to see a promo video of the show, please click on http://december63show.com
