Ahead of this month’s event, saddlers.co.uk caught up with Stephen James to find out more…
Q: So Stephen, how long have you been doing The Frankie Valli Story?
SJ: I’ve been doing it about seven years now. It started off quite slowly because Jersey boys – the theatre show about Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons - was only a relative success around that time. But over time, with the success of Jersey Boys and the success of my show as well, it’s really grown. The beauty of Frankie Valli’s music is that it appeals to people of all ages. People who aren’t necessarily hard-core fans know about 95% of his songs and like them as well. His songs are second to none – they’re really catchy songs.
Q: What is the structure of the show?
SJ: It’s the Frankie Valli Story so you get some really good bits of information in there. It’s like a one-man theatre show. Funnily enough, I do about 100 theatres a year with a bigger version of the Frankie Valli show. With this version, it’s a really good sing-a-long, dance-a-long, feel-good show. There are two parts – two 45-minute sets. I’ll go through the early days of Frankie Valli and do it chronologically. There’ll be all the hits and then the second half of the show concentrates on the 70s era. I’ve got quite a good following, particularly here in the West Midlands, and I encourage audience participation. Anyone who comes will consider it a night well spent.
Q: How much are you looking forward to performing here at the Banks’s?
SJ: I always enjoy playing at the Banks’s. I’ve played there two times before; I did the Frankie Valli Story last year and an Olly Murs party night earlier this year. Both shows sold really well which I was really chuffed about so I’m looking forward to going back there.
Q: So finally, why should people come along?
SJ: It’s a really high-quality show. They’re guaranteed to have a good fun-filled night and to be singing the songs all the way home. Anyone who comes to the show certainly won’t regret it.
