THE MIDTOWN MEN, Feat. Original JERSEY BOYS Cast Members, Opens Columbus Symphony's 2013-14 Pops Season Tonight
As original cast members of Broadway's Jersey Boys, they took the world by storm in one of the biggest hits of all-time.

Robert Spencer are taking their sensational sound on the road once more, bringing to life their favorite "Sixties Hits" from The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Motown, The Four Seasons, and more.

Formed in 2007, The Midtown Men reunites four stars from the original cast of Broadway's Jersey Boys. Following their storied run on Broadway - where these four magnetic artists shared the stage for more than 1,000 performances and appeared on "The Today Show," "The Late Show with David Letterman," "Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve," and The U.S. Open - they have been selling out venues coast-to-coast and living the dream they once portrayed on stage. The Midtown Men is the next chapter for these accomplished entertainers, making them the first vocal group ever formed by the principal cast of a high-profile Broadway show.
The past few years have been a whirlwind for the group. With each tour, their reach has grown, and with this next run, their third headlining tour, they are projected to perform an impressive 140 shows. Not only have they continued to win over audiences of all ages with their live performances, their self-titled debut album, THE Midtown Men: Sixties Hits, was met with critical acclaim and garnered five-star album reviews across iTunes. The album was recorded in New York City and features the group performing such iconic '60s hits as, "Can't Buy Me Love," "Up on the Roof," "Time of the Season," "Candy Girl," and more. It is once again a testament to what The Midtown Men do best-helping to keep alive iconic music from the '60s in the 21st century while giving it a new "twist."
