December ’63 show a tribute to Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons
The music of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons returns to Prescott for Tad Management’s “December ’63” show at the Elks Theatre and Performing Arts Center, 117 E. Gurley St. Hitting the stage on Friday, March 11, at 7 p.m., the group portraying the Seasons has been putting on the show for a little over two years and no show is quite like the last.
Nick Davies is one of the three other Seasons alongside Frankie Valli. A member of the original cast, he loves looking out into the audience and seeing all the people have flashbacks to the good old days, remembering when they listened to them the first time around, Davies said.
Personally, Davies loves the song “Swearing to God” as it was one of Valli’s disco songs and is very upbeat and fun, he said. But as a group, their favorite song to sing is “Silence is Golden.”
“The band takes a break and the four of us are left at the front of the stage with just our voices doing an acapella version of ‘Silence is Golden,’” he said. “We all come together as the four boys. It’s quite magical, actually.”
Tickets are $25 for adults and $22 for seniors and are available online at www.prescottelkstheater.com, by calling 928-777-1370 or at the door one hour prior to the performance.
“December ’63” was put together at the perfect time, Davies said. The “Jersey Boys” film came out a little over a year ago and the group started a year before that, he said. They got a lot of gigs when they started but when the film came out, the popularity of the show grew and continues to do so, he said.
People never get tired of the music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Davies said. The group has met people who state that they’ve seen the show at least 20 times on Broadway and they keep going back to see it over again, he said.
Further, though the songs are the same, no show is identical to the last, Davies said.
“The music is the same, but we don’t have a set script,” he said. “We just go on there as four friends having a good time. That really comes across onstage.”
