On the road again…

It’s October, and fall is in full swing! The guys have entered their seventh year touring with the Midtown Men, much to the delight of their audiences. The season is off to a great start, with concerts across the Mid-Atlantic (Maryland and Virginia) and the Midwest (South Dakota) before landing in the NY/NJ area for a pair of concerts last weekend.

 

 

 

 

 

In Maryland, they played Frostburg and Frederick for the first time before headlining one of Northern Virginia’s bright jewel arts events, ARTS by George! at George Mason University. From the review in DC Metro Theater Arts: “The Midtown Men concert was a sunny upbeat delight. This was no mere, “call-it-in” oldies-but-goodies event with four guys who could mimic across many a musical genre beyond The Four Seasons. There was a smooth ease about the evening. It was a concert with legendary ‘60’s music well-delivered by very highly skilled, authentic, entertainers, who danced up a storm on stage while truly seeming to not only enjoy what they were doing, but lit up the crowd with their winning personalities. And they were accompanied by a smokin’ 7-member rock band…Their concert was wall-to-wall of appealing, tight musical and spot-on choreographed harmony propelled by a seven-piece band, bursting-forth with horn-and sometimes flute dominated arrangements – and all filled with charming personal chemistry and the non-stop energy of the performers…It was an out-of-sight, full-tilt winning evening with The Midtown Men that benefited emerging arts stars of the future.

Soundcheck in New Jersey

 

This past weekend was an exciting one as TMM played for “hometown” crowds in New Jersey and New York. Both audiences were filled with fans and friends who have been supporting the guys since they were onstage together in Jersey Boys. Perhaps most exciting, they debuted some fabulous new songs, including an awesome Jersey Boys medley, and a new solo for Bobby (Steppin’ Stone by the Monkees). As always, the harmonies are tight, the choreography is smooth, and the songs just lift you up. Can’t wait to see if any other new songs are revealed through the season!

 

Next up: Heinz Hall with the Pittsburgh Symphony, in Pittsburgh, PA, October 28, 29, and 30, and some West Coast shows in November! Check out their full schedule here!

 

Thanks for reading, and hope to see you at a show soon!
