The first UK Theatre tour of Oh What A Night is now well underway, so whilst the boys, host Leye D Johns and the Viva Showgirls are busy travelling across the country we thought we’d take some time to tell you a bit more about the show!
As you probably know our hit show Oh What A Nite! stars Dominic Creighton, Max Fox, Shaun Wareing, & Jack Wealthall as The Jerseys. Joined by the outrageous Leye D Johns as host and compere, and also featuring our very own Viva Showgirls who bring glitz and glamour to the proceedings.
So where did it all begin?
At the age of 21 after coming back from a national tour Dominic turned his attention to putting together a Frankie Valli Tribute Show. After meeting with Max Fox and discussing the concept the pair decided on creating a 4 piece harmony band and started auditioning for other members.
In the spring of 2014 the newly founded 4 part harmony auditioned here at Viva for a place in our Viva Vegas Live! Show. Having been impressed by the potential of the group Viva directors Martin & Leye, invited the boys back but not for a part in the show, they wanted to create a new show entirely!
That summer, Oh What A Nite! debuted, and ran every Thursday night throughout the season. The show was a incredible success with more people turning out each week and some returning time and time again.
3 years on the show has gone from strength to strength with the latest change being the introduction of our Showgirls to the performance. Now known as The Jerseys the boys have achieved acclaim and success in their own right having performed for HRM The Queen at her 90th Birthday Celebrations at Windsor Castle. HRH Princess Anne at St James Palace. When not entertaining royalty they have worked Alongside Christopher Biggins, Ant & Dec, Alisha Dixon, Ainsley Harriet, Warwick Davies, The Canadian Tenors, & Pam St. Clement to name but a few. The boys have been extremely busy and gained a large fan base which has resulted in them appearing on BBC Radio performing a Live Lounge Set.
2017 looks to be the most successful year to date as Oh What A Nite! which over the last three years has become one of the most successful shows in Blackpool continues its first UK Tour as well as returning to Viva weekly throughout the year. Not being happy to sit idle the boys have also just landed a cruise contract and have over 220 dates for this year alone.
Arguably the best and most unique tribute to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, once you have seen it, we’re sure you will join us and 1000’s of other people in saying… We love Oh What A Nite!
