Sherry, Sherry Baby

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.
Sigh, so I can now mark Frankie off my Bucket List.  Now on to Tom Jones!!!

What a concert that must have been! I would have loved to have seen it too.

I hate to break it to you but Frankie was lip-sing'in. And Tom Jones? I thought he died. I heard he turned over in his sleep and smothered in his curly doo.


WOW...that is so cool and I love his music too!
Thanks for the prayers...WOW that you have had meningits so many times. I hope my daughter doesn't get it again...
Keep well!
