For well over a decade, they’ve wowed audiences all over the world with the rock ‘n’ roll icon!  During their long tenure, they developed their own identity. Valli heard something in them that he never found in any of the configurations of singers he’d worked with. Together in the studio, they finely tuned their ‘signature sound’ to iconic Frank Sinatra hits, blending the classic sounds of yesterday with their modern style. This discovery led to a cool new take on the popular hits of pop, rock, jazz and doo wop! They’ve performed with Valli on the world’s biggest stages, from multiple sold out concerts in London, England at Royal Albert Hall with the London Symphony Orchestra, to the O2 Arena and BBC Proms in Hyde Park for over 40,000 people. In 2014, the Modern Gentlemen represented their country on ‘A Capitol Fourth’ in Washington D.C., with Michael McDonald, Patti LaBelle, John Williams and others, as well as two separate engagements on the Broadway stage. They’ve toured the U.K., Asia, Israel, Canada, Italy, Australia and New Zealand.
