"something special..."

Ben Francis is the group’s director and has the same great tenor voice that Frankie Valli had. But this is no one man show; each member shines as a performer but as usual the total is more than just a sum of its parts. Every member takes the lead on one or more of the songs and together they are something special.

"musical powerhouse..."

Talk about high octane. They’re not only the hottest act in town. Perchance they are the hottest act in the land. Back in the 60s, no one could or did perform this material with the sort of energy and panache that the 60 Four turns on. They just make an audience feel uplifted. They make the world a happier place. Five stars does not really seem enough.

"born to entertain..."

With energy to burn, and talent in spades, this was an unbelievable night of foot-stomping, audience interaction and chair dancing to the iconic sounds of the 60s – timeless music presented by a group of boys who were quite literally, born to entertain. The 60 Four are the real deal, and this show cements their position as Australia’s best tribute artists to the 1960s.
