Jersey Boys

Posted: Updated:
When it comes to boy bands we are experts, but before One Direction or even 'N Sync there was one boy band whose sound was like nothing anyone had heard before. The Four Seasons are the pride of Jersey and hitting the big screen.

The garden state never sounded so good. "Jersey Boys" is the story of Frankie Vallie and The Four Seasons.

You probably know their music. This is about the men who made it.

John Lloyd Young: "They know the Beach Boys and they know Beatles and this is the east coast. The east coast equivalent of that and just as successful, but our own east coast equivalent those original boy bands."

It was the 60s version of an east coast, west coast battle but, they didn't fight it out on the streets, they came from the streets and fought it out in a recording studio.

Erich Bergen: "Everything from One Direction to Five Seconds from Summer. These are guys that wouldn't exist or wouldn't have existed had it not been for The Four Seasons."

Jersey Boys was a hit on the stage and most of the movie's stars came from the show.

Michael Lomenda: "It is the same but its different in little things. For example, there is no audience of course so you have to figure out where the audience is. So you rely on the crew and your fellow cast members."

There was a catch for the 3 stage actors, when it came to working with the "Boardwalk Wmpire" star, Vincent Piazza .

John Lloyd Young: "In theater, if you change a line you can get fined by the actors union. Well Vince got to set and he's like used the script basically as a guide line. And he's improving immediately and we had to go with it. So he brought our characters to life with a new spontaneity that really made the film."

Vincent Piazza: "I'm thankful but I'm also glad that rule doesn't apply because I'd still owe Warner Brothers money and fines from changes."

From the stage to the screen, "Jersey Boys" will have you saying who loves you pretty baby.

    The last time I had on a pair of overalls, I was miles from civilization with a whip in my hand, an hysterical co-worker by my side and five angry cowboys staring me down.

    I don't remember dying, but I did. Twice. It was a chilly Fall morning in October at a dentist's office in Santa Fe. My mom had escorted me to what was supposed to be a regular wisdom teeth extraction appointment.

    I could see the door to the jet bridge closing, despite the fact that I was just a few yards away from it.

    If I Stay is based on a best seller. Chloe Grace Moretz stars as a teen cellist facing tough choices, both here and in the space between life and death. Chloe and her co-star Jamie Blackley are telling Deco: bring some tissues, it's a tear jerker.

    Kindness and charm, unlike the people that live in Sin City, and i'm not talking about Vegas either. Things have changed in the town of Sin as in the motion picture while others have stayed the same. The cast of the movie told Deco what's new in part two.?

    This year's Miami Spice could use a phone book just to list the restaurants taking part, more than a hundred. Which means filling up on three courses for only $39 bucks. And at some places, that means saving a whole lot of money.
