Jay And The Americans
Friday, October 27, 2023
Jay and the Americans, started by four teenage boys in Sandy Yaguda’s Brooklyn basement, is one of the lasting success stories in rock ‘n’ roll history. From 1962 to 1971, this group charted an amazing 12 Top 10 records. With three original band members, founding member Sandy Yaguda (aka Deanne); original member Howie Kirschenbaum (aka Kane); and original member Marty Kupersmith (aka Sanders), plus the addition of Jay Reincke, the third and likely the best “Jay” yet, they have recreated the authentic sound of their greatest hits.
Jay and the Americans’ first recording was “Tonight” (from the musical West Side Story), but their breakout hit song was “She Cried.” The group’s next chart hit was “Only in America,” followed by Top 10 hits “Come a Little Bit Closer,” “Cara Mia,” and “This Magic Moment.” These songs and many others will be performed, along with stories of the artists and writers who influenced this 1960s super-group.
In 2002, Jay and the Americans were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, placing them among the greatest vocal groups in rock ‘n’ roll history.
