Franki Valli Loves Sherry (and So Do You)

The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has always seemed a bit like New Jersey. With its tough guys in the poker room, hoochie mamas at the club, middle-aged divorcees plugging away at the slots, and chongas standing in for guidettes, it’s a veritable Jersey shore in Florida.

Perhaps, then, Franki Valli and the Four Seasons, who perform at 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Hard Rock (1 Seminole Way, Hollywood), will feel right at home. The boy from Newark, New Jersey, became one of the biggest musicians of the ’60s, beginning with his number-one hit “Sherry” in 1962. His many other hits include such loungey staples as “Oh What a Night” and “Big Girls Don’t Cry.” Tickets begin at $51. Call Ticketmaster at 800-745-6000, or visit hardrocklivehollywoodfl.com.
