Horray for Jersey Boys in Hollywood–Review Roundup!

October 13th, 2014

Terrific reviews for JERSEY BOYS at Pantages Theatre (playing through 10/19/14) in Hollywood. Check out excerpts to reviews around town below:

BeverleyPress.com: For the “Jersey Boys” who took the stage Sunday, namely Nicolas Dromard (Tommy DeVito), Jason Kappus (Bob Gaudio), Hayden Milanes (Frankie Valli) and Adam Zelasko (Nick Massi) as The Four Seasons, with Barry Anderson and Thomas Fiscella, they treated the audience with fabulous renditions of “Sherry”, “Big Girls Don’t’ Cry”, “My Eyes Adore You”, “Walk Like a Man” and the ever-memorable “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”, among many others.

Milanes’ voice was so reminiscent of the “real Frankie Valli” you believed it to be him.

NeonTommy.com: This particular performance featured an extra surprise— Frankie Valli himself was in the audience, and he came out onstage to thunderous applause during the curtain call. Riding the emotional high of the show’s closing number “Who Loves You?,” it was challenging not to feel overwhelmed by his presence after having just borne witness to his story. Seeing the original Jersey Boy on stage, I couldn’t help it — this big girl did cry.

Examiner.com: FIVE STARS! It just doesn’t get any better. I was totally enraptured by the movie Jersey Boys, but when I saw it on stage at the Pantages in Hollywood it took me to yet another level of total exhilaration. Vibrant, poignant, brilliant and pure energy are all fair descriptions of Jersey Boys, but why is this so?

Without a doubt one of the prime motivators of the more seasoned crowd is the simple fact that the music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons had been a huge part of our young lives. We all knew in some way “Sherry baby” and then, of course, we also knew that we really had to “Walk Like a Man.” The amazing music from the Four Seasons and the amazing voice of Frankie Valli lit up our young lives. But the show delivers so much more. Read the rest of this entry »

Jersey Boys Plays Pantages Theatre Through 10/19; Preview of Frankie Valli’s (@frankievalli) @presstelegram Feature

October 3rd, 2014

JERSEY BOYS has returned to Los Angeles, playing at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre through Oct. 19 & reporter Sandra Barrera has a marvelous interview with pop icon Frankie Valli, who chats about his career & JB. Below is a sneak peek:

Valli’s long career alone includes work as a solo artist and actor. That’s him on the title track of “Grease.” He was whacked on HBO’s “The Sopranos” and just shot an episode of CBS’ “Hawaii Five-0.”

Of course, he’s still out touring the Four Seasons’ music.

“?‘Jersey Boys’ has been a great big help,” he says. “Our music has been reintroduced to younger generations. Sometimes I’m amazed when I look out in the audience and I see the various ages of people, from little kids to 60, 70, 80 years old.”

He’s also planning to pen an autobiography, if only to tell the stories not told in “Jersey Boys” for the sake of its story arc.

“This is one of those situations where there can almost be a continuation,” he says. “How do you do 55 years in two hours? I don’t know how to do that.”

Throwback Thursday: ‘And That Reminds Me’ by The 4 Seasons 45 RPM Picture Sleeve, 1969 #tbt

October 2nd, 2014

mod4seasons

Let’s go back to 1969, for The 4 Seasons’ rendition of “And That Reminds Me”! This song was recorded by many artists, including Della Reese and The Honey Dreamers in 1957. The Four Seasons version peaked at #45 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Interesting that song was recorded on the Crewe Records label, isn’t it?

Now, let’s talk about the fashions! For you guys who had the opportunity to see The Four Seasons perform back in the late ’60s, was did they wear these types of “mod” fashions on stage? By the time I saw the group perform live in the mid-70s, they were wearing white bell bottom trousers & matching white shirts decorated with a stripes and big dove!

Listen to Tom Brokaw’s Tribute to Bob Crewe on ‘An American Story’

September 27th, 2014

Veteran broadcaster Tom Brokaw has posted a terrific segment on the late great Bob Crewe on this week’s edition of “An American Story.”

It’s great to hear Brokaw’s fond memories of the music that makes him feel 16 again, but I wish he would have double-checked his research! Crewe co-wrote massive songs for The Four Seasons–but did not write “Sherry”! That error aside, it’s still a nice tribute.
