The 60s, 70s and 80s were a golden era for songwriting, and during this period, artists like Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Tommy James and the Shondells, and many other big name chart-busting groups created beloved hits that have been heard for generations and are woven into America’s consciousness.
After decades behind the scenes, some of the greatest artists instrumental in the success of these fabulous songs have united to form THE HIT MEN.
The mega stars that THE HIT MEN played with:
- Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, Tommy James and the Shondells, Carly Simon, Cat Stevens, Jim Croce, Elton John and other mega-star acts of the 60s, 70s, and 80s.
The names of the hit songs they either recorded or performed on tour…Song titles such as:
- “Who Loves You”, “Oh What a Night”, “Dawn”, “Let’s Hang On”, “Sherry”, “Walk Like a Man”, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You”, “My Eyes Adored You”, and other Four Seasons hits, plus the Shondells’ “I Think We’re Alone Now”, “Hanky Panky”, and “Mony Mony”; Jim Croce’s “Bad Bad Leroy Brown” and “Don’t Mess Around with Jim”; Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain” and “You Belong to Me”; Elton John’s “Crocodile Rock” and “Saturday Night”, Cat Stevens’ “Peace Train”.
THE HIT MEN are real rock and roll Legacy performers – not the actors from the Broadway shows, but the former stars of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons – who toured the world with Frankie back in the day and are now on their wildly successful Reunion Tour across the US. Members of THE HIT MEN were also performing and recording artists with Tommy James and the Shondells, Carly Simon, Cat Stevens, Jim Croce, Elton John and other mega-star acts of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. In their multi-media experience show, THE HIT MEN perform their great Four Seasons hits and many more #1 songs they helped make famous, and share with the audience great back stories from their days on the road and in the studio with Frankie, Tommy, Carly, Cat, Jim and Elton. The perfect show for Baby Boomers!
A group of amazing performers, superb musicians, superior vocalists, great arrangers and creative composers, THE HIT MEN are hit makers of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s… performing and recording members of mega-star acts including Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Tommy James & The Shondells, The Critters, Carly Simon, Jim Croce, Cat Stevens, Barry Manilow, Elton John & Kiki Dee.
