Bob Gaudio Honored in Nashville!

March 30th, 2009

From Bob Gaudio may be a Jersey boy, but Nashville has earned his respect.

Gaudio, a founding member of The Four Seasons and the writer of most of their hits, was honored in a brief ceremony Sunday night after a performance of the musical “Jersey Boys” at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. The musical is about The Four Seasons and how the quartet started their career in New Jersey.

Nashville Mayor Karl Dean thanked Gaudio for making Nashville his home.

“Nashville rocks,” said Gaudio, who has lived in Nashville 16 years. “It’s the greatest music city.”

Congratulations to Bob Gaudio on his latest honor!


  1. Is Jersey Boys still scheduled to open in Raleigh, NC this coming June?

  5. Besides being a distinguished and prolific writer, Bob Gaudio is such a gentleman. Congratulations, Bob! “Who Loves You?” …Nashville, does…and so does the rest of the country (and England, too!).

Great show and such an honor to attend the show that Bob was being honored by the Mayor of Nashville. We flew in from Kansas City to see the show and it was worth every penny spent!
