Jay and the Americans, the original blue-eyed soul groups, is playing at The Lyric Theater in Stuart this Sunday, March 10th. The group famous for songs like “She Cried,” “This Magic Moment,” and “Cara Mia.”
They were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2002 and played Madison Square Garden 18 times, a highlight of their career. “Selling out Madison Square Garden, you never forget,” band member Deanne said. “There were kids screaming our names. It was mind-boggling and we never dreamed it would happen. It was a wonderful thing. We came off stage bewildered because the audience was standing and screaming.”
Today, the band has Deanne, Howie Kane, Marty Sanders and Jay Reinecke, the third “Jay” in the band’s history. They never thought, as 18-year-olds, that 54 years later they would still be performing for screaming crowds. They love touring and going to smaller towns that they never played the first time around.
When: Sunday, Mar 10, at 4PM and 7PM
Where: The Lyric Theater - 59 Southwest Flagler Avenue, Stuart, FL.
