Two great talents are coming to Hillcrest this month.
Martinis Above Fourth is beginning the new year with some of the biggest talents in Hollywood. On January 24 get ready for John Lloyd Young in "Jukebox Hero."
John Lloyd Young won both a Tony and a Grammy for his role as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys on Broadway. He also played the legendary singer on the big screen.
The star will sing the Four Seasons and other giants of the 50s, 60s, and 70s at Martinis Above Fourth on Thursday, January 24. Over the years, Young has sung selections from Jersey Boys several times at the White House, in the halls of Congress, and to Kennedys, Clintons, Bushes, Obamas, Bidens, Trumps, Pences and the Prime Minister and First Lady, Shinzo and Akie Abe, of Japan.
As a concert artist, Young has taken his expertly-curated repertoire of classic pop and R&B to filled-to-capacity rooms, thrilling his audiences with a “disciplined one-in-a-million high tenor shading into a falsetto that he can direct through the stratosphere” (The New York Times).
He has played The White House, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, The Hollywood Bowl, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Mar-a-Lago, Clint Eastwood’s Tehama Country Club, New York’s Café Carlyle, Feinstein’s in NY and San Francisco, Radio City Music Hall, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade and New Year’s Eve in Times Square.
