I went to the Ocean City Show and spoke to several people who were not aware that Jay Black would not be there and they were very disappointed.
APPARENTLY YOU HAVEN'T READ THE NEWSPAPER IN THE LAST YEAR!The people you met were probably plants that Jay Black's manager sends to shows!These are
probably GAMBLING buddies of Jay Black, and they
just took a ride from AC for the day.So get a life
no one is walking out from these shows,because people are starting to accept Jay Reincke and also
love to see 3 originals.

Yes Rose B. you are absolutely correct. Many letters have come in to Jay Black tellng his how dissappointed they are that he is not at these shows. Jay Black does not send anyone to these shows - he doesn't have to resort to plants in an audience. The real audience is enough of a complaint pool. Jay Black has asked Toddy B. to accept two namees: Jay Black and the Americans and Jay Reincke and the Americans. Naturally pitiful little Toddy B. refuses to accept this billing to clear up the confusion. If people are accepting Reincke and that is fine, then why not tell the public that it is Jay Reincke and the Americans? Because they are scared no one will come.

JB Management I wouldnt believe a word you say. I know your Jason Stone. From going over all the blogs it is a given that you are Jason Stone and a mole. I have emailed the so called ToddyB and he emailed ne back and he could of not been nicer and forthright. So get a life. How does an execuitve in the music business have time to constantly write on this blog as well youur actions not your words show how scared you are of this new JATA. Have you see the comments on their website as well as all the dates they are playing. As well I have seen the new JATA and they are great. They tell the history of the group and dedicate She cried to Jay Traynor and Cara Mia to Jay Black. They are a class act.

Rose there is no more Jay Black and the Americans anymore,and I'm sorry that Jay Black cannot except that there is a new lead singer.If only his so-called manager can help him out by adding more shows for Jay Black.

I have been seeing Jay Black perform and I will always go to see him no matter what name he uses. I just didn't like being fooled into seeing a group that did not have him. The new singer is not and he will never be Jay Black.

Let me ask you something,weren't you fooled for so many years
(1974 until last year)when Jay Black was billing
himself as Jay Black and the Americans?This group
has a new lead singer and people are accepting it,just like fans did when the 1st Jay left the
group.Jay Black is Jay Black and has nothing to do with the Americans anymore,just memories!!!!!
GOOD LUCK TO JAY BLACK AND HIS MANAGER.

Jay Black didn't fool anybody by calling himself "Jay Black and the Americans" He is Jay Black. When I bought ticket's I knew I was seeing Jay Black. I saw Jay and the Americans and assumed it was Jay Black. It wasn't and I was disappointed as were many others.

We don't quite understand. Jay Black still performs, so why should they not. People are well informed this is Jay Reinke.

HE SHOULD PERFORM UNDER HIS REAL NAME DAVID BLATT.

Thank you Rose.
Jay Black never left his group. He still performs the same as he has for 35+ years. A loop hole in the bankruptcy laws allowed Sandy Yaguda's step son to write a check and buy the use of the name. Simple as that. Jay Black is and always was The Americans and whether he uses the name of Americans or not does not change who he is, was and continues to be. Disappointed Joe will stay disappointed.

He can't use that name anymore,and if he did he
is sure to be back in a court room!There are laws
against non original members in a group,and even
though Mr. Black is the original vocal on many of the songs,he is not and never will be an original
of Jay and the Americans.Also he still has a big fan base,and he should not have any problems to continue
on with his life.First thing he should do is to get new representation,because his manager continues to
make him look bad and should concentrate on getting this great singer some gigs,and not worry about the competition out there.

Jason Stone, I can't beleive how many of those guys are after your job. I know you're a success because everyone at JATA is after you! By the way, I just realized what JATA means (JACK ASSES TOURING AMERICA). Sometimes these new abbreviations are not such a good idea! Keep up the good work Jason.

THEY NEED TO DEDICATE ALL OF THE SONGS AFTER SHE CRIED TO JAY BLACK "THE VOICE" SINCE HE RECORDED ALL OF THE OTHER SONGS WITH THE AMERICANS! THERE IS NO QUESTION THAT IT WAS JAY BLACK'S VOICE ON ALL OF THOSE SONGS.

They do dedicate some songs to Jay Black,and the new lead is keping the music alive of Jay and the Americans.Next time you go see the FOUR
Tops,they have a new lead (because of Levi Stubbs
illness),and the group still is selling out shows!Why,because they are keeping the music alive of the Four Tops.Believe me that no one is trying to take away anything from Jay Black,and its up
to his manager to get him the show dates to keep
his fans happy.Also if Jay black is so concerned about using real names,why didn't he use his real name when he became Jay #2?

I just hope Jay Black has truly conquered his gambling problems and can lead a happy life performing the songs he wants to sing. It's tragic he couldn't have just continued using the whole band name "Jay Black and the Americans". It would have at least allowed him a legacy into his retirement that would have been decent and fair. His voice was one of the great tenors in show business.
