John Lloyd Young is the Tony® and Grammy award-winning Frankie Valli from Broadway’s Jersey Boys as well as the star of the Clint Eastwood-directed Warner Bros film. John Lloyd Young: Jukebox Hero returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below with a brand-new set of classic throwback ‘60s standards presented in the authentic acoustic style of original rock ‘n’ roll, Doo-Wop, and R&B. The show features Jersey Boys hits such as “Sherry” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” and audience favorites “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me” and “Show and Tell,” along with brand-new covers of Orbison, Al Wilson, Little Anthony, and other giants of the era.

Renée Marino can be seen as Mary Delgado in the film Jersey Boys directed by Clint Eastwood and was featured in People.com -“Ones to Watch”, Variety and in The Huffington Post which stated: “The Broadway star — who is basically Tina Fey’s celebrity doppelganger — is a scene-stealer, spouting swears and put-downs with aplomb. Jersey Boys pops whenever she’s onscreen.” Broadway credits: Pretty Woman – Ensemble/ Dance Captain/Assistant to the Choreographer, Rosalia in West Side Story, Mary Delgado in Jersey Boys, Chaplin and Wonderland. National tours: Cats, Disney’s High School Musical and Jersey Boys. Television: Regina on Fox’s “Weird Loners”.

Mr. Young sings classics with such an angelic voice and flawless technique that even those who object to the idea of teeny-bopper pop in the shrine of the American songbook would have to give in.
