The 60s, 70s and 80s were a golden era for songwriting, and during this period, artists like Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Tommy James and the Shondells, and many other big name chart-busting groups created beloved hits that have been heard for generations and are woven into America’s consciousness.

After decades behind the scenes, some of the greatest artists instrumental in the success of these fabulous songs have united to form THE HIT MEN.

Watch THE HIT MEN's Legacy Video here:

 

A group of amazing performers, superb musicians, superior vocalists, great arrangers and creative composers, THE HIT MEN are hit makers of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s… performing and recording members of mega-star acts including Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Tommy James & The Shondells, The Critters, Carly Simon, Jim Croce, Cat Stevens, Barry Manilow, Elton John & Kiki Dee. This brotherhood of musicians have a friendship that dates back over 50 years. They have reunited to go out on tour again, to relive the magic they created on stages around the world and in recording studios years ago. With THE HIT MEN, you can experience the hits of the 60s, 70s and 80s the way you first heard them, a musical Legacy that includes all of the great Four Seasons songs made popular again by Broadway’s Jersey Boys… and so many other memorable solid gold hits.

When THE HIT MEN take the stage today, it’s easy to see why their music has transcended generations. The notes are sharp, the vocals spot-on, the energy is high, and these guys are having the time of their lives sharing their Musical Legacy with audiences at theatres, performing arts centers, casinos, fairs and festivals across the country!

The brainchild of Lee Shapiro, THE HIT MEN are a collection of hit-makers whose friendships and individual record successes have been interweaving with each other for most of their lives. Get to know each of them individually right here…
