Jay and The Americans, New York's sensational pop/rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Barbara B Mann Performing Arts Hall!
Jay and The Americans was formed in 1960 in Belle Harbor (Queens) by John "Jay" Traynor, Howard Kane, Kenny Vance, and Sandy Deanne. The band's been through a few line up changes and it currently consists of Sandy (vocals), Howard (vocals), Marty Sanders (guitar and vocals), and Jay Reincke (lead vocals). Over the years, their musical style has spanned many genres such as Brill Building pop (a genre named after the numerous teams of professional songwriters who worked at the Brill Building -- a block of music publishing houses in New York City -- and wrote songs for artists as diverse as the Coasters, the Drifters, the Shangri-Las, the Ronettes, Neil Sedaka, and Connie Francis), rock, blue eyed soul (a term coined in the mid 1960s to describe white artists who performed soul and R&B that was similar to the music of the Motown and Stax record labels), and vocal pop (a genre that's considerably lighter than traditional pop and falls somewhere between pop and easy listening). They’ve had a stellar career with 17 studio albums, 31 singles (6 of which were top 15 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 , and they've been inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame.
