This December, The Lyric will host the Atlantic City Boys with a Holiday Twist, featuring a vocalist quartet and a live band performing Christmas classics. The Boys’ usual repertoire includes ‘60s favorites, from “Build Me Up Buttercup” to “In the Still of the Night.” This December, the Atlantic City Boys will be incorporating Holiday classics, such as “White Christmas” and the “Hanukkah Song.” The Atlantic City Boys were first created in 2008 as a tribute group celebrating the sounds of Frankie Valli. Since then, the Boys have expanded to include more rock-n-roll hits from the 1960s. The quartet features four lead singers, and each vocalist takes a turn leading the group. The Boys have performed in venues across the country, from Las Vegas to their hometown of Atlantic City. As Jan McArt, Director of Live at Lynn University, explained, the Atlantic City Boys have “non-stop energy, incredible talent and unlimited excitement!” The Boys will combine songs from their regular 1960s songbook with some beloved holiday songs on December 14th at 7:00PM. Tickets are available online at www.LyricTheatre.com or through The Lyric Box Office at (772) 286-7827.
