About this show

In one of the greatest turnabouts in Rock and Roll history, the group Jay and the Americans, started by four teenage boys in Sandy Yaguda's Brooklyn basement 40 years ago, have bought back their rightful name in federal court, restoring the name to its rightful owners. Very few bands have ever reached the musical heights of Jay and the Americans. From 1962-1971, this group charted an unprecedented twelve top 10 records. With three original band members, Sandy Yaguda (aka Deane – founding member), Howie Kirschenbaum (aka Kane – original member), and Marty Kupersmith (aka Sanders – original member), plus the addition of "Jay" Reincke — the third Jay and probably the best yet — they have recreated the authentic sound of all of their great hits that everyone remembers.
