On February 25, 2011 John Michael Coppola debuted his solo concert, now titled A JERSEY VOICE: Sinatra to Springsteen...and Everyone in Between, at the Metropolis Performing Arts Centre in Arlington Heights, IL. It was a resounding success and played to a sold out crowd! Featuring song selections from the 1940s through today, the concert's set list includes songs made popular by such artists as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and of course, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. With the addition of a hot seven piece band and a few stories about the journey of moving his family from New Jersey to Chicago to be part of JERSEY BOYS, one of the biggest, world-wide hits playing today, this is one great evening of entertainment you’re sure to love!
