The Modern Gentlemen rock the stage

The individuals making up The Modern Gentlemen – Landon Beard, Todd Fournier and brothers Brian and Brandon Brigham – were all in-demand singers prior to being brought together as a quartet by the legendary Frankie Valli.

For well over a decade now, they’ve been wowing audiences worldwide providing all the background vocals and choreography alongside the Rock & Roll Icon!  So, if you’ve seen Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in concert anywhere in the world over that time, you’ve seen these four gentlemen beside him!

Since then, they’ve developed their own signature sound blending their modern voices together with four part, tight harmonies performing the classic hits of pop, rock, and doo-wop.

 

Silent Disco – What is it?

A silent disco is an event where people dance to music listened to on wireless headphones. Rather than using a speaker system, music is broadcast via a radio transmitter with the signal being picked up by wireless headphone receivers worn by the participants. Those without the headphones hear no music, giving the effect of a room full of people dancing to nothing.

The silent disco capping our evening will begin at 10 p.m. and will be held outside the Wayne Theatre with a cash bar. It will conclude at midnight.
