With their unique style and modern “Rat Pack” persona, Under the Streetlamp bring the American Radio Songbook to a whole new level in their second television special for PBS. With the mantra “Retro never sounded so now,” these four extremely talented and charismatic former cast members of the Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical Jersey Boys provide an electrifying concert produced at the renowned Chicagoland’s Star Plaza Theater.

Backed by an outstanding ten-piece band, singers Michael Ingersoll, Shonn Wiley, Michael Cunio and Christopher Kale Jones bring these classic hits back to the millions of fans who fell in love with this music in the first place.

The show includes classic hits of the 50s, 60s and 70s with the perfect balance of tender ballads and up-tempo classics, all done with the same signature harmonies and slick dance moves that have made them irresistible. The title of this program — LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL — says it all. Of course no Streetlamp show would be complete without a musical tribute to “Jersey Boy” Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.

The production team at HMS Media includes the 17-time Emmy-award-winning team of Matt Hoffman and Scott Silberstein and lighting/production designer, Todd Clark. The show is beautifully captured using seven cameras at Chicagoland’s prestigious Star Plaza Theater. Charlie Blum, executive producer of both Streetlamp specials, brings his expert touch to this production.
