Who in the World is Alex Alda?

January 30th, 2007

As you all know from Jersey Boys, the guys went through a ton of names before that fateful night at the bowling alley when they became the Four Seasons. Did you ever hear the country song “Little Pony” by Alex Alda? Turns out Alex Alda was Nick Massi with the soon-to-be Four Seasons in 1962!

Thanks to a suggestion by Harry, a JB Blog reader, here’s your chance to hear a clip of Alex Alda (aka Nick Massi) singing lead on a catchy country tune that he co-wrote with Bob Gaudio from the amazing Fantastic First Years CD.

  1. I enjoyed hearing that song Nick recorded. He and I did a duet back in 1958 singing a song he later recorded with his group The Hollywood Playboys, which I released thru Rita Records of NJ. I worked with Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi in their Vitomass Productions studio in 1963 to 1964. He used to write songs on the spot and asked me to take the harmony etc. I have an mp3 of Nick and I singing “Im Lonely” prior to Sherry. Im happy to see the Four Seasons doing so well now and only wish Nick were alive to enjoy it.
