  1. What a performance! The U.S. Navy personnel performing, both the singers and band members, are simply amazing!! After their careers in the armed services are through, they all have a future in doing a military version of Jersey Boys. And the five vocalists can all rotate amongst themselves playing the parts of each of The 4 Seasons.

  4. A stunning performance!
    Loved every number!

    What happened to CAN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF OF YOU”?
    I thought, OK, they’re saving it for last.
    I was wrong (and so disappointed)

    If you add it, Let me know!!!!!

  9. Somehow the concert on the Avenue video ended up on my Facebook page. I came in very late from a very tough day . . .and decided to watch this *one* thing. It was the perfect remedy for all my grumpiness. Thanks guys.

  10. Just fantastic! I am proud of your representation of the USA and grateful for all your sacrifices and work for this country.

  11. Outstanding performance. Bravo Zulu to the U. S. Navy Band and especially the singing Chiefs. At times I thought I was actually listening to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, artists that I grew up listening to. I only hope that they do more of this in the not to distant future.

    Comment by Chris — August 25, 2015 @ 2:44 pm

  13. I want more. This hit my soul – I cried and grinned throughout the video. I’m 75 year old next week and am in love with every one of them all. Please, more shows of them. The band was great, too. Can’t stop thinking of them and luckily put them on my wall so I can play it anytime I want.

  14. Better than originals in the 50′s and 60′s!!!!!!

  15. Who are these great singers? I didn’t see their names anywhere. I would like to look for them in the future. The falsetto notes are incredible. Are they really in the U.S. Navy?

    Comment by carol fitz — August 26, 2015 @ 9:38 pm

  16. can I find out when I may be able to see this performance?

    Comment by Valerie Murphy — August 28, 2015 @ 5:21 pm

  18. Someone sent me their video on u-tube. They areTERRIFIC. Do they still perform and if so what is their itinerary and how do I get it. Have they recorded these concerts for public purchase. LOVE THEM. God bless them and all our military they make us so proud.

    Comment by Jean Spires — August 29, 2015 @ 8:58 am

  19. I received this video from a friend on facebook. I will thank him so much. Please!, where can we find out more about this group. Who tracks these comments? Great music. I am a retired ATC.

  20. I agree with Leland. I am a Veteran of the U. S. Navy 1964-1971. And when I heard and saw this I got all Chocked-up. I miss the Navy and go back in a second. I’ll admit it wasn’t easy in my error, but today what is offered to women was our dreams.

  21. WOW, Excellent performance. I started my military career in the Navy. Keep up the good work and hope to see more of this.

    Comment by Steve Emmond — September 1, 2015 @ 8:43 pm

  22. Hard to believe the Navy has these 5 guys in at the same time. I think their performance was absolutely great. I would like the chance to see them again. Thanks for your service and your music.

  23. AMAZING SHOW. Could someone publish their itinerary if they have one. Would love to see them. Thanks for filming it. Great way to end a summer evening in Sep.

  24. I saw this on another website and was very impressed with the band and the singing and personalities of the singers. I have played this over several times and never tire of it! Please keep sharing these performances with us, it’s quite a treat! I live on the west coast and would love to see them live!
    Thank you all for your service and thanks so much for your talent!!

  25. It was great. Rag Doll is my favorite, when the Master Chief was sung to, it made me proud, and I wanted to join the Navy. To bad I am 78.

  26. Retired Navy Snior Chief and absolutely enthralled with this performance. Any chance of getting names and/or ranks of the five?

    Comment by John Whiteman — September 22, 2015 @ 9:46 am

  27. I’m addicted! Great songs and they are better than the Broadway performers!! I would love to see them in person!

    Comment by Martha Boehm — September 24, 2015 @ 8:17 pm

  28. This is a fantastic video. The Naval Band and choir are terrific. I certainly did enjoy the Jersey Boys I am 93 years young at heart, slightly older in other places, But I have always been a music lover and loved ballroom dancing in my younger years. Love and GODS Blessings, Anita May GODS Angels continue to watch over all of you forever, is my prayer.

  29. A friend posted this earlier today and I am awed by the talent of these young men! Coming from a “Jersey Girl” who grew up listening to one hit after another from Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons (who were from a town, not far from mine) I can honestly say they are INCREDIBLE! in some respects BETTER than the original recordings and certainly give the Broadway show fellas something to cheer about! God Bless the military and the USA. I would love to see them in person!!!!

  30. where can we get our own dvd of this… they are amazing…

    Comment by pauline stacey — October 25, 2015 @ 12:06 pm

  31. The numbers in my address are the hull number of the USS Spangler DE 696. I went aboard at 17 as SA, came off as RD1, that would be OS now. I remain blue and gold at the age of 82. I enjoyed the “jersey Boys”, my wife asks, are you watching that again. My question is what rate and rating are these guys. Saw some been there ribbons but no qualms. The Mastet Chief had more been there than all the jersey boys combined plus she had some qual insignitias.

  36. Love, love, love this performance! Music from my era….the best!
    I have so much respect for the military. My dad was stationed at Hickam AFB, Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. He was my hero!
    When he was told his diagnosis of ALS, his comment was “I survived one war, hopefully I’ll be strong enough to survive this one”.

  40. who is the gorgeous guy on the right?
    the short darkhaired guy?

    Comment by NJgirl819 — March 3, 2017 @ 1:52 am

  41. What a wonderful group!! My wife Tara and I were just listening to them again, (and again and again) and a thought occurred to me. I know it’s a long shot but what the heck. Our Navy base Naval Commsta Nea Makri Greece sailors are having a big reumion in Tarpon Springs the weekend of June 17th. What a hoot it would be to see these guys surprise the shipmates with a performance! Like I said, long shot I know. I know it’s kinda last minute but had to ask. It’s all organiezed extremely well and we’re hoping for around 300 folks to be there. Hey, I may win the lotto too!! yes or no, they’re wonderful!!
