Jay and the Americans with Special Guest A Spoonful of Love – TWO SHOWS…ONE PRICE
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. Few bands
have ever reached the musical heights of JAY AND THE AMERICANS. From 1962 to 1971, this
group charted an amazing twelve Top Ten records. With three original band members, founding
member Sandy Yaguda (aka Deanne); original member Howie Kirschenbaum (aka Kane); and
original member Marty Kupersmith (aka Sanders), plus the addition of Jay Reincke, the third and
likely the best “Jay” yet, they have recreated the authentic sound of their greatest hits. Hits include Tonight (from the musical West Side Story), She Cried, Only In America, Come A Little Bit Closer, Cara Mia, and This Magic Moment.
A Spoonful of Love’ is not a Tribute Act! It is a salute to the music and influence of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band The Lovin’ Spoonful, created and led by longtime Lovin’ Spoonful drummer Mike Arturi. The show features music that influenced The Lovin’ Spoonful, as well as music from the heart of the ‘60s that they themselves went on to influence. All of the hits and deep cuts from the Spoonful’s astounding catalog are included in the show, along with insights and narratives as told by Mike from his unique perspective as an ongoing member of The Lovin’ Spoonful since 1996. Making a special appearance for this show is founding member and original bass player Steve Boone! What a treat!!
