JAY AND THE AMERICANS, started by four teenage boys in a Brooklyn basement over 40 years ago had an unparalleled 12 top ten records during the short time between 1962 and 1971. They were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall Of Fame (2002), placing them among the greatest vocal groups in Rock and Roll history. Few bands have ever reached the musical heights of JAY AND THE AMERICANS.

Continuing to perform before sold out crowds, the three original band members, Sandy Yaguda (aka Deane), Howie Kirschenbaum (aka Kane), and Marty Kupersmith (aka Sanders), plus the addition of “Jay” Reincke, have recreated the authentic sound of all of their great hits that everyone remembers.

JAY AND THE AMERICANS’ first record was “Tonight” (West Side Story). Hits that followed are “She Cried”, “Only in America”, and “Come a Little Bit Closer”. Other memorable songs are “Some Enchanted Evening”, “Crying”, and Neil Diamond’s “Sunday and Me”.

They have toured with such legendary artists as Roy Orbison, The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones. JAY AND THE AMERICANS played a key role in starting the Rock and Roll revival with their album Wax Museum (1970), where they paid tribute to many Rock and Roll greats with their versions of “Hushabye”, “Walkin’ in the Rain”, and a song that reached the top ten, “This Magic Moment”.

Do you remember when you first heard “Cara Mia”? You will hear all of these songs and more, which are featured in the new JAY AND THE AMERICANS’ show. Fans describe their voices as powerful and amazing, and their show as both fantastic and fabulous. Enjoy an enchanted evening with JAY AND THE AMERICANS and relive those wonderful magic moments of your life.
