Montreal's Rialto Theatre Welcomes The Hit Men, 10/27

Ezio Carosielli and the Rialto Theatre are excited to bring international stars, THE HIT MEN, to the historic Rialto Theatre for one night only, Saturday, October 27.

Lee Shapiro and the other HIT MEN are looking forward to performing at the Rialto for their sole Canadian date, “It’s great to be going back to Montreal. Don, Gerry and I toured Canada when we were Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in the 70s. We played everywhere from Quebec to Dawson, where we saw the Canada Day Parade!”

The 60s, 70s and 80s were a golden era for song writing, and during this period many big-name artists and chart-busting groups created hits that are woven into our consciousness. This group of six amazing performers, superb musicians, superior vocalists, great arrangers and creative composers, THE HIT MEN, are these actual hit makers- performing and recording members of mega-star acts Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Tommy James & The Shondells, The Critters, Carly Simon, Jim Croce, Cat Stevens, Barry Manilow and Elton John & Kiki Dee. THE HIT MEN, Lee Shapiro, Don Ciccone, Gerry Polci, Larry Gates, Jimmy Ryan and Russ Velazquez, have performed on over 80 albums since 1966!

When THE HIT MEN take the stage today, it’s easy to see why their music has transcended generations. Their voices are eternally young with vitality shining through- they sound exactly like they did when they sang lead on the Who Loves You album, including hit song 'December, 1963 (Oh, what a night)'. The notes are sharp, the vocals spot-on, the energy is high, and these guys are having the time of their lives sharing their musical legacy. Along with fantastic music, during their performance THE HIT MEN share great back stories and anecdotes from their days in recording studios and on the concert circuit; it’s a terrific look back through rock & roll history from the guys who lived and breathed the experience.

This brotherhood of musicians with deep friendships have reunited to go out on tour again, to relive the magic they created on stages around the world when they went from kid to iconic. With THE HIT MEN, the audience experiences a night of mega-hit after mega-hit from the 60s, 70s and 80s the way they first heard them. They also enjoy all of the great Four Seasons songs made popular again by Broadway’s Jersey Boys as well as many other memorable solid gold hits they helped make famous, like ‘Mony, Mony’, ‘Hanky Panky’, ‘Peace Train’, ‘Bad, Bad LeRoy Brown’, ‘You’re So Vain’, ‘You Belong To Me’, ‘Mr. Dieingly Sad’ and ‘Younger Girl’.

Meet THE HIT MEN here.

THE HIT MEN will play the Rialto Theatre, 5723 Parc Ave. on Saturday, October 27.
