There are legendary musicians still performing their craft after all these years, and then there is Frankie Valli. The ageless front man for the Four Seasons, born Francesco Stephen Castelluccio to an Italian-American family in Newark, New Jersey, is still belting out songs some 65 years after he began doing it professionally in the early 1950s.

The current incarnation of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons visits Lincoln City for a pair of 8 p.m. shows at Chinook Winds Casino Thursday and Friday nights, June 21-22. For tickets/info: www.chinookwindscasino.com. It's a chance for local music fans to enjoy the enduring sounds of Valli, 84, who scored 29 Top 40 hits with the Four Seasons and nine more as a solo artist in the 1960s and '70s. Seven of his songs made it to No. 1, including "Big Girls Don't Cry," "My Eyes Adored You" and "Grease."
