Sherr-erh-erh-erh-erh-erh-reee Baay-yaaa-beee...uh...yeah, I was in Frankie Valli Heaven. David and I went to see Frankie Vallie at The Orpheum in Memphis. We had a great time. He was great, and even though he is now 76 years old, his voice sounds just like it did he first time I heard Sherry, or Rag Doll, or Walk Like A Man, or Dawn or Stay or Oh What A Night or....I could go on and on.
And his back up band was awesome, horns, saxophones, flutes, 6 guitars, keyboards, drums...the sound was just awesome. He had four young back-up singers with him that were superb--from what I understand, they are now "The Four Seasons." I don't know if they were any of the guys that were in Jersey Boys, but their voices were just beyond compare.
David and I saw Jersey Boys at The Orpheum back in February and had an awesome time, so I was beyond excited to get to see Frankie (yes I can talk as if I know him personally) in concert.
I have always loved him and that pure falsetto/tenor three octave range of his.
