The Hit Men (Port Saint Lucie Civic Cente- Port Saint Lucie)
* The Hit Men.
If you’re a fan of 60s-80s Rock N Roll…then you gotta go see The Hit Men.
Real simple, but pretty cool story here… In a nutshell, about 4 years ago- The Hit Men “band” was formed by 5-guys who in the 60s-80s played “back up” to some of- Rock’s legendary performers. AND the “band” became huge, with sold out shows all over the United States.
Jeff Eats has seen The Hit Men, trust me, they will blow you away. For what it’s worth, over the years I’ve caught-this and that “super group” and this and that “all star” band- and I gotta tell you, The Hit Men-is the real deal. These guys are dynamite and superbly cover the legendary hits. Now I may be talking out of school here-Jeff Eats is very familiar with the “fees” that similar type acts command and I am telling you, that The Hit Men is getting top dollar for its dates…this tells me that The Hit Men have built a huge reputation and fan base.
Jeff Eats, just heard that The Hit Men will be appearing at the Port Saint Lucie Civic Center on Sunday, December 7, 2014. .

Printed below is The Hitmen’s “version” of who/what/how it all happened:
The 60s, 70s and 80s were a golden era for songwriting, and during this period, artists like Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Tommy James and the Shondells, and many other big name chart-busting groups created beloved hits that have been heard for generations and are woven into America’s consciousness.
After decades behind the scenes, some of the greatest artists instrumental in the success of these fabulous songs have united to form THE HIT MEN.
A group of amazing performers, superb musicians, superior vocalists, great arrangers and creative composers, THE HIT MEN are hit makers of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s… performing and/or recording members of mega-star acts including Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Tommy James & The Shondells, The Critters, Carly Simon, Jim Croce, Cat Stevens, Barry Manilow, Elton John & Kiki Dee. This brotherhood of musicians have a friendship that dates back over 50 years. They have reunited to go out on tour again, to relive the magic they created on stages around the world and in recording studios years ago. With THE HIT MEN, you can experience the hits of the 60s, 70s and 80s the way you first heard them, a musical Legacy that includes all of the great Four Seasons songs made popular again by Broadway’s Jersey Boys… and so many other memorable solid gold hits.
When THE HIT MEN take the stage today, it’s easy to see why their music has transcended generations. The notes are sharp, the vocals spot-on, the energy is high, and these guys are having the time of their lives sharing their Musical Legacy with audiences at theatres, performing arts centers, casinos, fairs and festivals across the country!
