JERSEY Boys may have conquered Broadway, but the music will be brought to the C.ex Coffs.

Started in Las Vegas as a stage show in 2008, Oh What a Night! celebrates the journey of Frankie Valli and the , , Four Seasons in song, dance and hilarious banter.

"There's a lot of comedy, a lot of music and non-stop dancing," said original cast member and writer of the Oh What A Night! show, George Solomons.

"You can't sing songs like Sherry, Big Girls Cry, Walk Like a Man and I Love You Baby without everyone singing along," Solomons said.

Unlike Jersey Boys, this show has all the original hits, as well as several more such as Grease (is the word).

"Grease gives me the chance to get on my own John Travolta Grease outfit, which is an incentive to keep fit," Solomons said.

"We now have 40 different guys doing the show around the world, but we've got the original cast together for the Australian shows," Solomons said.

"I'd been doing a solo show of Frankie Valli and producer Michael Chapman suggested we do a Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons Vegas show, and I loved the idea."

Fellow cast member Paul Holmquist choreographed a show around Solomon's script that reveals the men behind two generations of hit tunes.

"We start from the very beginning and pay tribute to when they were a doo-wop group, before there was any instrumentation, and spans a nice chunk of musical history."

Fans of the original hits can be reassured their favourites are performed true to the original hits.

"We don't try and do a souped-up 2000s version of the songs. We stay so true to them, people ask: Were you guys lip-syncing to the original music?"

"When Rick Morgan (cast member) sings My Eyes Adore You, the audience just swoons."

Oh What A Night, a musical tribute to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, will be performed at C.ex Coffs at 8pm on Saturday, October 8. Tickets cost $39.50 for all ages.
