I have been a huge Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons fan since I first heard "Rag Doll" in the summer of 1964. Not only are they members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, according to Billboard magazine, they rank #9 in number of hits, more than the Beach Boys and many other more "fashionable" groups. And, with the success of Jersey Boys, the smash hit Broadway musical that tells the story of their lives, a new generation of Four Seasons fans has begun.
Last night, Kathleen, Brandon (son) and Mary (daughter-in-law) and I got to see Frankie and the Seasons at Starlight Theatre in Kansas City. As always, they gave a great show. Frankie is now 75 but is the consummate performer. If you would like to see them, a schedule is here. And, if you would like to see the superb Jersey Boys, the schedules are here.
To make the evening perfect, we were treated to a spectacular lightning show driving back to Wichita.
