Bob Gaudio is the quintessential music maker. In the late '50s, at the age of 15, he co-wrote his first hit, "Who Wears Short Shorts," for a group he started, The Royal Teens. He then went on to become, with Frankie Valli, a founding member of the supergroup, The Four Seasons. His song, "Sherry," in the early '60s, launched their incredible string of hits. At the time, he also began a productive and creative relationship with Bob Crewe, a teaming that produced an amazing run of hits for The Four Seasons, including "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Rag Doll," "Walk Like a Man," "Bye Bye Baby," "Silence Is Golden," and in 1967, Frankie Valli's classic, "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You."

Gaudio also produced and co-wrote with his wife, Judy Parker, "Who Loves You," for The Four Seasons and Billboard Magazine's longest-charting single (54 weeks), "December '63 (Oh, What a Night)." He has also enjoyed an enduring association with recording star and songwriter, Neil Diamond. He produced four of Diamond's albums and received an Emmy nomination for Best Sound Production for the star's TV special, "I'm Glad You're Here with Me Tonight," for which he also composed the title song. Two years later, he acted as producer of the Neil Diamond/Barbra Streisand duet recording, "You Don't Bring Me Flowers," for which he received a Grammy nomination.

In addition to The Four Seasons, Gaudio has been associated with many major names in the popular music industry. He co-wrote and produced the Watertown album for Frank Sinatra and has produced albums with Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Roberta Flack, Barry Manilow, Peabo Bryson…
