The Midtown Men, Featuring Original JERSEY BOYS Cast Members, Announce Tour Dates
The Midtown Men, Four Stars from the Original Broadway Cast of JERSEY BOYS, continue to gain momentum as they announce their fourth national tour. The group's founding members, Tony Award winner Christian Hoff, Michael Longoria, Daniel Reichard and Tony Award nominee J. Robert Spencer, known for their lively versions of the greatest pop songs of the 1960s, will take their highly acclaimed talents to many of the nation's most prestigious venues this season.
In addition to premier Performing Arts Centers across the country, the group's fourth national tour will include 26 major symphony performances, most notably three appearances with the National Symphony at the Kennedy Center under the direction of renowned conductor Steven Reineke, as well as Denver, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Charlotte, Oklahoma City, Minneapolis, and Nashville.
Among their growing legion of fans are some true icons of the 1960s, like rocker Tommy James who said recently, "The Midtown Men are the real deal: the thrill of sixties rock and roll and the magic of Broadway rolled into one dynamite package. You're gonna love these guys!" Other 1960s legends seen cheering at recent concerts include Dion, Shirley Alston Reeves (lead singer of The Shirelles), Judy Craig (lead singer of the Chiffons), The Rascals' Gene Cornish, Bobby Vee, Paul Anka, Darlene Love, legendary DJ "Cousin Brucie" Morrow, and the late Sid Bernstein, who first presented the Beatles in America.
Last season, The Midtown Men appeared together on Good Morning, America, Access Hollywood, ABC's Katie, The Chew, and sang in front of 25,000 people at the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony at the White House. Most notably, they collaborated with show business icon Stevie Van Zandt and members of Bruce Springsteen's E-Street Band on a Christmas single, "All Alone On Christmas," with proceeds benefiting the American Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy Relief, which led to a performance in New York City alongside Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Tom Morello, Dion, and Darlene Love.
Upcoming NYC area shows include The State Theater in New Brunswick, NJ on Dec 5; The Tilles Center in Greenvale, NY on Dec 6 and NJPAC on April 25, 2014.
