The Jersey Tenors
The Jersey Tenors is the newest Opera/Rock Mash-up sensation that creates an explosive blend of the most iconic Opera classics
alongside such Rock ‘N Roll industry greats as Queen, Journey, Elton John, and Billy Joel to name but a few.
But we are also “Jersey Proud” and we do not forget where we came from as we highlight some of Jersey’s finest like Frankie Valli
and The Four Seasons, Sinatra, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Kool and The Gang, and even Whitney Houston (Jersey Girl)!
Whether it’s a theatrical production, corporate entertainment event, private event, party entertainment, or an outdoor concert…These four charming wise guys will raise the roof with their powerful voices, and they will have you singing along before yous guys know it.
From Frank Sinatra to Frankie Valli to Figaro…Forgettaboutit!!!
