Vocalists perform the hits of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons
"Oh, What a Night - A Tribute to the Music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons" sets in motion a season chock full of entertainment at the Yavapai College Performance Hall.
The curtain goes up on the season's debut at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday, Sept. 19, when a touring troupe of vocalists celebrate the songs the Four Seasons made famous - "Walk Like a Man," "Let's Hang On," "Sherry," and much more.
Music of the evening will take the audience on a walk back in time, back to the days when the Four Seasons, with Frankie Valli in the lead, began their legendary climb as a rock-and-roll group. Some music critics say this group was the most popular white rock band before the Beatles. The group members from 1960 to 1965 were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1999.
From the beginning of the Four Seasons' entrée into the music world, the hits kept pace with the band's rock tempo, with biggies such as "Big Girls Don't Cry," and "Candy Girl," all of which the audience can expect to hear in Saturday night's concert. Some later hits are on the bill, too, when the saluters will belt out "Working My Way Back to You, Babe," "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You," and the all-time favorite, "Grease."
"This show is a great way to run up the curtain on our 2009-2010 season," said Julie Moss, Yavapai College community events supervisor. "It's full of energy and great music, and will have the audience humming these great songs with smiles on their faces for days afterward."
