Jay Black and The Americans are one of the New York area’s most popular rock ‘n’ roll attractions. His voice, as strong as it was when he recorded "This Magic Moment" and "Cara Mia," is only part of the reason that New Yorkers flock to his shows at the Music Fair. For nearly two hours, Jay Black does what he’s paid to do, he entertains. In addition to his singing, Jay also possesses a sense of humor that measures up to the best of today’s stand-up comedians and has become "Mr. Sell Out" at the Fair, where all the tickets are quickly bought out.
Over the years, Jay Black and The Americans have charted 21 singles with seven million-sellers. "Come A Little Bit Closer," "Some Enchanted Evening," and "Walkin’ In The Rain" are only a few of the songs they perform in concert. A rock ‘n’ roll icon, Jay’s golden voice and dynamic stage presence are the reasons for the longevity of his success. Jay and the Americans have now been a major part of the American pop music scene for more than three decades!
Jay Black joined Jay & The Americans in 1962 when Jay Traynor, the lead singer of their first hit, "She Cried," left the group. While in Leiber & Stoller’s office, Jay Black picked out the song, "Only In America," as a sure fire hit. The rest is history, and today Jay Black, whose authoritative vocals are still as ardent as they were in the mid-sixties, continues to perform to sell-out crowds.
