Jersey Four tribute to the Four Seasons

By Anthony J. Machcinski

Decades have passed since the Baby Boomer generation was young and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons had the top pop hits in the nation. Nearly 50 years after “Sherry” peaked at #1, the Jersey Four hope to pay tribute to those times gone by and to make their own hits. And this week, you can hear them in Lyndhurst.
Started four years ago by Anthony Newell and Joseph Cilento,  the Jersey Four tribute show has been touring the area. Group members have covered several bands from the 1960s and 1970s, including  the Four Seasons, Blues Brothers, Beach Boys, and Jay and the Americans.
“We got together when the hottest thing going was the Frankie Valli tribute for the Jersey Boys,” said drummer and co-founder Newell. “We had a liking for the Four Seasons, and they’re in demand for our area, but they don’t tour the area often enough.”
