Oh What A Night!: An Afternoon with Charles Calello


» Buy Tickets to Oh What A Night!: An Afternoon with Charles Calello

Join Charles Calello and his big band as he celebrates the hits he has been a part of throughout his decades-long career. With a discography that includes more than 100 Billboard chart records, Charles Calello is regarded as one of the greatest arrangers of our time. Some of the biggest entertainers of the 20th century, including Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Ray Charles, Engelbert Humperdinck, Roberto Carlos, Neil Diamond, Laura Nyro, Paul Anka, Barry Manilow, Juice Newton, Ronnie Milsap, Willie Nelson, and Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, have relied on Calello’s musical genius. Calello’s work with The Four Seasons in the early ’60s helped spawn a chain of hit records that catapulted the group to stardom and created a sound that’s still unique today. In 1965–1966, Calello actually replaced Nick Massi and toured with The Four Seasons, but throughout that period, he also arranged and produced several other hits, including “The Name Game” with Shirley Ellis, “Navy Blue” with Diane Renay, “A Lover’s Concerto” with The Toys and “Lightnin’ Strikes” with Lou Christie. Calello eventually settled comfortably into a career as an independent arranger, producer and composer, working between New York, California and Brazil, recording music that earned him global acclaim. His recordings include more top-10 hits than any other arranger, 15 of which have been nominated for Grammy Awards. In October 2000, Calello was honored for his talent and artistic contribution to the music industry with an induction into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame as one of The Four Seasons.
