    Saturday, October 11th 8:00 p.m. Arts Center - Iowa Western Community College, 2700 College Road The 60’s, 70’s and 80’s were a golden era for songwriting with acts like Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Tommy James and The Shondells, and other big name chart-busting groups creating beloved hits that are woven into America’s consciousness. Now, after decades behind the scenes, some of the greatest artists who were instrumental in the success of these fabulous songs have reunited to form THE HIT MEN. Not Broadway actors, or a tribute band, these guys are the real performers– including members of mega-star acts like Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Tommy James and the Shondells, The Critters. On the road touring as THE HIT MEN, this brotherhood of musicians relive the magic they created on world stages and in recording studios years ago, bringing audiences a night of hit after hit songs such as “Oh What a Night”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “Mony, Mony”, “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown” and “You’re So Vain”.
