The 2015-16 season of the Campus Performing Arts Series at Missouri University of Science and Technology will kick off this month with a performance by The Hit Men. The group includes former performing and recording members of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, the Ramones, Jim Croce, and Tommy James and the Shondells.
The performance will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets in Rolla.
The Hit Men will perform hit songs from the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s that the members helped popularize. The group will perform “December 1963 (Oh What a Night),” “Sherry” and “Crocodile Rock” among others. The group will mix the musical performance with stories from recording sessions and being on the road during the glory days of rock and roll.
