Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons

The Fantasy Springs Resort in Indio has a Special Events Centre, which is like an arena. Tonight the six of us went to hear the almost 76 year old Frankie Valli and we got our moneys worth!

The new, very young "Four Seasons" where like Chippendale dancers who, as you would expect, could also sing very well. In addition to three guitarists, a drummer and a keyboard player (who has been with Frankie for 33 years) there was a horn section of six. All together it made for such a big, thunderous sound in the opening number ("Dawn") it had me wondering if we were going to hear Frankie sing at all. As the evening and the songs unfolded we did and he still can! "Sherry", "Rag Doll" and "Big Girls Don't Cry" had the whole house rocking with the entire audience singing along. This is a poor photo folks, but it's all I've got!

Frankie is the little, bright white figure in the spot light! He gave us an amazing performance!
