New York, NY – The Midtown Men, the vocal group comprised of four stars from the Original Broadway Cast of Jersey Boys, have announced a trio of legends who will join them for their long awaited New York City Homecoming concert on June 20th, 2015 at New York’s famed Beacon Theatre (2124 Broadway, NYC). Music icons Ronnie Spector (The Ronettes), Shirley Alston Reeves (The Shirelles) and Gene Cornish (The Rascals) will be special guest stars for the one night only concert, performing hits from the 1960s that made them legends. The trio joins the group, led by Tony Award-winner Christian Hoff, Michael Longoria, Daniel Reichard, and Tony Award-nominee J. Robert Spencer, who after performing nearly 400 concerts across North America, will sing their celebrated arrangements of the greatest hits of the 1960s at the Beacon, their final show of this year’s tour.

About The Midtown Men: During their time in the mega-hit musical Jersey Boys, these four talented artists shared the stage for over a thousand performances. Since forming in 2010 as The Midtown Men, they have played in concert halls from coast to coast and have sung with over 20 major symphonies, including the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center. In 2012, The Men released their first radio single, “All Alone on Christmas,” written and produced by rock icon Steven Van Zandt and backed by Van Zandt’s bandmates from Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band as a fundraiser for the Red Cross after Hurricane Sandy. They were honored to perform the song at the White House for the National Tree Lighting Ceremony in Washington DC that year. Wrapping up their fifth national tour in 2015, the “Men” continue to sell-out venues across the U.S. and Canada.
