DeVito along with Valli, Bob Gaudio, and Nick Massi founded the Four Seasons in 1960. They sang huge hits such as 'Oh, What a Night,' and other sensations from Valli’s solo collection, like, 'Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.'

The Broadway musical Jersey Boys, which opened in 2005, tells the story of the band. The musical eventually won a Tony award for best musical, a Grammy Award for the best cast album, and was made into a feature film.
