With a staggering 18 charted hits and five Top 10 records, few bands ever reached the heights of Jay and the Americans. “This Magic Moment,” “Only in America,” “Cara Mia,” “Come a Little Bit Closer,” “Some Enchanted Evening,” “Let’s Lock the Door,” “Walkin’ in the Rain,” and more are on tap for an evening filled with hits and stories only they can tell. The group features original members Sandy Deanne, Howie Kane and Marty Sanders joined by their powerhouse lead singer for the last 15 years, Jay Reincke – they are one of the few artists of the era that still boasts 3 original members. Joining them will be La La Brooks, the original lead singer of The Crystals (“Da Doo Ron Ron,” “Then He Kissed Me”), Chris Ruggiero (as seen on PBS-TV) and The Shades of Blue (“Oh How Happy.”) Presented by Scotty Productions in association with Pop, Rock & Doo Wopp Live!
