_SCL6104Hot on the heels of this week’s opening of the Jersey Boys film, Four Seasons’  Frankie Valli and Bob Gaudio met up with up and comers ‘Under the Streetlamp’ at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium.  Inspired by their Four Seasons Idols, The Streetlamp boys (who all appeared in touring companies of the Jersey Boys shows) went on to form their own group which has been touring the country for two years performing hits from the American Radio Songbook. Streetlamp were enthralled to meet their heroes. Gaudio wrote and produced many of the Four Seasons hits.  Star Theatre’s Charlie Blum who manages Under the Streetlamp also promotes several US Frankie Valli dates including the Ryman show, arranged for the surprise historic meeting.  Highlights included some keen observations from Frankie and Bob, as Chris was surprised to learn that Frankie wanted to become a jazz singer at one time.  Shonn was inspired by Frankie’s story of  hard work and long hours the Four Seasons endured early in their career, long before the height of their success. As Shonn mentioned afterwards, “This notion that we will become masters at our craft by putting in the work  will pay off in the future.” And what about the show?  Here’s what Chris had to say: “It was so great seeing Frankie in concert. To still hold an audience in the palm of your hand is incredible and gives me something to aspire to.”
