During their time in the mega-hit musical Jersey Boys, these four artists shared the stage for over a thousand performances and delighted television audiences with appearances on the "Today Show," "The Late Show with David Letterman," and "Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve." Following their storied run on Broadway, they have been selling out venues coast to coast living the dream they once portrayed on the stage. The Midtown Men is the first vocal group ever formed by the principal cast of a high-profile Broadway show.
