In 1963 “The Beach Boys” released “Surfers Rule”, a tongue-in-cheek dig at their East Coast rivals, “Frankie Valli & The 4 Seasons”. (“Four Seasons, you better believe it!” they chanted, while Brian Wilson mimicked Valli’s wailing falsetto from “Walk Like A Man”) “The 4 Seasons” then responded in kind with “No Surfin’ Today” a not-so-subtle dig at
The Beach Boys!
From then on, it was ON!
A fierce rivalry grew between the East & West Coast factions fuelling each group to come up with better and better material, and WE (the world’s music lovers) are the ones that benefited! Over the ensuing decades, the music from thesetwo great vocal groups became legend.
With the enormous success of the Broadway smash “The Jersey Boys” and the box-office hit movie that followed, interest in Frankie Valli & The 4 Seasons has never been higher. The Beach Boys were set to emulate that heightened popularity with the release of the movie blockbuster, “Love And Mercy”.
Now, you can decide for yourselves: who is the best vocal group of all time?
“The Australian Tribute To Frankie Valli & The 4 Seasons” and “The Beach Boys Tribute Show” go head-to-head in one HUGE SHOW.
