Jay And The Americans

Friday, October 27, 2023

Jay and the Americans, started by four teenage boys in Sandy Yaguda’s basement in 1961, is one of the lasting success stories in rock ‘n’ roll history.  Few bands have ever reached the musical heights of Jay and the Americans.  From 1962 to 1971, this group charted an amazing 5 Billboard Top 10 hits and 12 Top 20 hit records.

Since 2006, the group has featured founding member Sandy Yaguda (aka Sandy Deanne), original member Marty Kupersmith (aka Marty Sanders), astounding lead vocals by Jay Reincke, and the backing of the fantastic USA band.

Jay and the Americans’ first recording was “Tonight” from the musical “West Side Story,” but their breakout hit was “She Cried.” Their next chart hit was “Only in America,” which they followed with “Come a Little Bit Closer” and “Cara Mia.” The hits continued with the group holding the distinct honor of recording Neil Diamond’s hit song “Sunday and Me” and their recording of “Crying” pays homage to the legendary Roy Orbison. “Some Enchanted Evening” holds the record for most copies ever sold. The group continued their music in the late ‘60s with “This Magic Moment,” a Top 10 hit, and into the early ‘70s with “Walkin’ in the Rain.”  These songs are featured in Jay and the Americans’ show, along with stories of the artists and writers who influenced this ‘60s supergroup.

In 2002, Jay and the Americans were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame.
