In 1960, the group known as The Four Lovers evolved into The Four Seasons, with Frankie Valli as the lead singer, Bob Gaudio (formerly of The Royal Teens) on keyboards and tenor vocals, Tommy DeVito on lead guitar and baritone vocals and Nick Massi on bass guitar and bass vocals (Massi was replaced in 1965 by Charles Calello, who was in turn replaced later in 1965 by Joe Long on bass guitar and bass vocals).

Frankie Valli and Tommy DeVito previously performed with Nick DeVito (Tommy’s twin brother) and Hank Majewski as The Four Lovers. The Four Seasons released their first hit, “Sherry,” in 1962. Under the guidance of producer/songwriter Bob Crewe, The Four Seasons followed up “Sherry” with several well-remembered hits, including “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “Dawn”, “Walk Like a Man”, “Candy Girl” and “Save It for Me”. Nick Massi left the Four Seasons in 1965 and was replaced by Joe Long, who became the mainstay on bass and backup vocals until 1976.
