“Beach Party Boys, Frankie Valli and American Graffiti, were superb. Fernando, crooned them to a frenzy with his Frankie Valli tribute. A lot of people said, if you close your eyes you would think it was the real Frankie Valli. The Beach Party Boy set and the American Graffiti set were exceptional and the dance floor was packed from beginning to end. The 2-3 encores said it all. Everyone loved them and all the comments that I received was hire them for next year. The entire band was very amiable and from the heart, sincere, and you could tell that they love playing in front of appreciative crowds. 10/10 rating”

“My girlfriend and I attended the Marmora Jamboree last night (Sept. 7) for the first time and even sat in the rain! This band is excellent! Great music and so talented! I am in my early 50’s and am bananas about 50’s and 60′ music! I like how the group told the audience some history about each singer/song. The man who sang Franki Valli – Sherry- was even better than Frankie Valli! We could have listened to this group all night! When the lead singer (I believe) spoke about his Dad coming from southern Italy it hit home because my parents came to Canada in 1960 from Sicily too. Our husbands chose not to attend the Jamboree with us. Crazy! They missed a great show!”
