You’ll hear Doo-Wop, Motown, old time Rock ‘n Roll and all of your favorite songs from Elvis Presley, Tom Jones, The Drifters, The Beach Boys, The Beatles and a “show-stopping” salute to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons! Classic hits are reborn for today’s audiences in this evening of great music and hilarious behind-the-scenes tales, complete with an exceptional band composed of world-class musicians.

While each performer gets his moment in the spotlight, their synergy and charisma as a group has drawn an extremely devoted nationwide following.
Each performer carries with him an impressive list of credits. Between them, they have appeared on Broadway, in features films and on television – including special appearances during the New Year’s Eve celebration in Times Square, on “The Tonight Show”, “The Primetime Emmy Awards”, “The Tony Awards” and “The Oprah Winfrey Show”.
“We think of ourselves as hosts to a party – and we’ve invited people of all ages,” says Ingersoll. “They can sing along. They can dance in the aisles. We of course show respect for these great songs and we want everyone to leave the party smiling.”
The production’s original performers met onstage as the lead characters in “Jersey Boys” and have since formed a concert sensation of their very own. After achieving initial success performing in and around Chicago, Under the Streetlamp aired its first PBS special in 2011 and the second in 2014.
