Jay And The Americans Still Crooning Their Classic Hits

Sunday, June 9

Press Release
Crooners, Jay and the Americans

Jay And The Americans perform at The Flying Monkey in Plymouth on Sunday June 9 at 6:30 PM.    During the 1960s they became known as hit makers in the popular music scene. Tickets for this concert start at $39.

Jay and the Americans, started by four teenage boys in Sandy Yaguda’s Brooklyn basement fifty years ago, is one of the lasting success stories in Rock ‘n Roll history.    From 1962 to 1971, this group charted an amazing twelve Top 10 records.

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-ten hits Come A Little Bit Closer, Cara Mia, and This Magic Moment. These songs and many others are featured in Jay and the Americans show, along with stories of the artists and writers who influenced this 1960s supergroup.

Jay and the Americans’ recording of Some Enchanted Evening holds the record for most copies sold of this legendary musical masterpiece. The group also holds the distinct honor of recording the great Neil Diamond’s first hit song, Sunday and Me. Their recording of Crying pays tribute to the legendary Roy Orbison, with whom they toured, along with many other acts including The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.

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.

“This concert will take folks on a nostalgic ride through popular music of the 60’s,” says Seth McNally of The Flying Monkey.  “A must see show for any fan of early blue eyed soul.”

Tickets for Jay and The Americans range from $39 – $49.  For more information on upcoming shows or to purchase tickets call the box office at 603-536-2551 or go online at www.flyingmonkeyNH.com.
