Fans of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons are in for a treat as the band’s music is set to be performed at the Royal & Derngate next week.
The show, New Jersey Nights, takes a nostalgic musical journey through the career of one of the biggest selling groups of all time.
Hailing from a tough Italian neighbourhood in New Jersey, Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons forged a sound which combined sweet vocal harmonies with a gritty R & B edge.
From their first hit, 1962’s number one Sherry, their success survived the British invasion and beyond, with a brief signing to Motown yielding northern soul classics The Night and the recently revived Beggin’.
The hits continued into the disco era with My Eyes Adored You and December, 1963 (Oh, What A Night).
The Four Seasons’ astonishing catalogue of songs is at the heart of New Jersey Nights, as four singers recreate the group’s vocal harmonies and Valli’s extraordinary soaring falsetto lines.
Including a live band and dancers, this production features all of The Four Seasons’ greatest hits such as Walk Like A Man, Bye, Bye, Baby (Baby Goodbye), Big Girls Don’t Cry, Let’s Hang On, Working My Way Back To You, Dawn (Go Away), Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Cry and many more.
New Jersey Nights will run at the Royal & Derngate from Monday, June 10 until Saturday, June 15 at 7.30pm, with matinees on Wednesday and Saturday at 2.30pm. Tickets cost from £15 to £30 and can be booked by calling the box office on 01604 624811 or visiting www.royalandderngate.co.uk
