The Grove Theatre in Dunstable was graced with the show Bye Bye Baby last night (2 March 2019), a tribute to Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.
A very mixed packed audience were not to be disappointed. You must know the story of ‘The Jersey Boys’, if you don’t, I won’t spoil it, as this particular tribute tells the story so well. From humble beginnings to the height of their fame and beyond, this show packs so so many hits into the set, it’s incredible.
The stage doesn’t need much, the four-piece band with a constant backdrop of lyrics or pictures of the original band complemented Frankie and his band mates. I have to say, Jersey Boys would be a personal favourite of mine, having seen numerous tributes and the show in London and Milton Keynes, I felt a little bit of showbiz West End magic visited Dunstable last night.
THEY WERE AMAZING. What a Saturday night out, toe tapping, singing, dancing, that was just the group, let alone me! Honestly lads, proper quality, loved loved loved it.
Too many tunes to mention but they pack everything in that you love and more, heard a couple of new songs, it didn’t matter I didn’t know them, I felt I did. The energy of these guys from start to finish should be applauded. Loved the outfit changes, loved the dancing, mostly on point. If you go and see one show in 2019, Bye Bye Baby is the one for you. I don’t think I have seen an encore like it, they must have packed ten or more songs into a medley, truly worthy of the standing ovation they received. Apologies for the hecklers towards the end, they clearly don’t get out often.
Beggin….. beggin for more, I will definitely see these wonderful guys again, fabulous voices, I hope you go on to big things, you were all magnificent. Check out their tour dates and get yourself a ticket, you will enjoy every minute they are on stage.
