“It’s a full 1960s music experience.”
The Midtown Men set bring ‘Jersey Boys’ sound to SFSC
Marc Valero | Highlands Today Published: December 3, 2015
AVON PARK — The Midtown Men — the four original stars from Broadway’s “Jersey Boys” — will perform songs of the Four Seasons, the holiday season and the 1960s at South Florida State College this month.
Tickets are still available for the concert at 7 p.m. Dec. 15 in the Alan Jay Wildstein Center for the Performing Arts.
After their three-season run on Broadway, The Midtown Men are together again wearing their Rat Pack-style suits and singing the sixties hits with a modern twist.
Daniel Reichard, who portrayed Bob Gaudio of the Four Seasons, spoke to Highlands Today by phone on Tuesday about the “Jersey Boys” and The Midtown Men.
As Gaudio sang the tenor parts under Frankie Valli in the Four Seasons, Reichard sings the tenor part in The Midtown Men.
The original cast members of the “Jersey Boys” came from different backgrounds and didn’t know each other before the show’s initial run in La Jolla, Calif., Reichard said.
“We were just put together by chance,” he said. “We formed life-long bonds by doing the show together.”
