Four Seasons - A story of love, rejection and revenge

The Four Seasons sound is sometimes described as doo-wop, but strictly speaking they should not be regarded as true doo-woppers. Close harmony singers is probably a better alternative.

Initially the sweet-voiced quartet from Newark, New Jersey called itself The Four Lovers, but as we all know they blossomed into the Four Seasons. The name has nothing to do with ever-changing atmospheric conditions, and everything with a bowling alley-cum-amusement arcade of that name in Union, New Jersey.

Apparently the act of the Four Lovers was rejected by the management of the hall. By way of sweet revenge the foursome then metamorphosed itself into the Four Seasons. Sounds unlikely, but perhaps for that very reason it could be the true story.

Active: 1960-present, USA
