Stewart & Tricia Macpherson for THE STETSON GROUP present:


OH WHAT A NIGHT!
A Musical Tribute To Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons

Direct from Las Vegas , the “ OH WHAT A NIGHT! – A Musical Tribute To Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons” show arrives in New Zealand for the very first time, in what will be a whistle-stop 14 day, 10 date Tour that is sure to send the crowd berserk, just like the real Jersey Boys did some 40 years ago.

OH WHAT A NIGHT! is a highly-successful production written by Independent Motown producer and creative consultant George Solomon (also in the show) and award-winning producer/director Michael Chapman with choreography by Paul Holmquist.

This sensational tribute show features all of the original hits including Frankie Valli’s biggest solo hit from the blockbuster movie GREASE as well as earlier hits such as Sherry, Rag Doll and Walk Like a Man, through to 1970s favourites Who Loves You and the more melodic love songs, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You and My Eyes Adored You.

Producer, Stewart Macpherson says "Given recent interest in Four Seasons’ music, it is gratifying to be able to take this hit show to much of New Zealand ."
Four seasoned performers complete the line-up: George Solomon, Chris Anderson, Thomas Bevan and Josh Woodie. Between the scores of recognizable tunes, the foursome deliver spirited, informative and often hilarious banter.

Solomon, who has performed / written with major stars including Diana Ross, Bill Cosby, Tina Turner, Stevie Wonder, Harry Connick Jr. and Liza Minnelli says OH WHAT A NIGHT! is one of the best all-around feel good shows he has ever been involved with and people “just go crazy for it”.

“You can’t go wrong with the music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons because when people are watching the show they can’t believe how many hits they have,” says Solomon.

Also, the appeal of our show isn’t limited to any age group. You can bring the entire family. The four of us will be appearing in New Zealand for the very first time and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to perform for your crowds.”
