With their own spin on such hit tunes as "Happy Together," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Sherry," and "California Dreamin'," The Midtown Men have released their debut CD, "Sixties Hits," which will delight baby boomers and enchant a new generation of listeners to these timeless songs!
Comprised of 4 original stars from the Tony Award winning musical "Jersey Boys," The Midtown Men are Tony Award winner Christian Hoff, Michael Longoria, Daniel Reichard, and Tony Award nominee J. Robert Spencer! On Broadway, these four guys rocked the stage in "Jersey Boys," but as The Midtown Men, they triumph! The formation of The Midtown Men reminds me of another legendary musical quartet, The Beatles! Like the Fab Four, the blending of their vocals and talents are golden. While each member has their own flair, it's their combined strengths that really make the music!
I love the mix of songs The Midtown Men have included on "Sixties Hits." My favorite tracks are "Can't Buy Me Love," "Happy Together," "Big Girls Don't Cry/Sherry," "California Dreamin'," and the Four Seasons' medley "Let's Hang On/Working My Way Back To You/Breaking Up Is Hard To Do." I gravitate to these songs in particular because I just love their rhythm and vibe and they also bring me back to a very fun time in my life, when I hosted my own '50s/'60s radio show in college.
I think it's wonderful that Christian, Michael, Daniel, and J. Robert have teamed back up to bring this music to their allegiance of fans, both old and new! Separately, these four men are a sight to see, but when their "superpowers" are combined, the result is pure perfection! In the words of "Jem and the Holograms," "This is only the beginning" for The Midtown Men, cause like "Jem," they are "Truly Outrageous!"
