concerned fan, Don't worry about Jay Black, he will be out-singing any of the fakes that join JATA when he is 90 years old .And I am sure his fans will still love him. I watched the video of one of those fakes and I am still laughing, what a rube.
Is this Peg or Sue Ellen? Both from the same town? Checkout Sept 07 blog. Isn't it funny that we haven't heard from Sue Ellen and now we have a Peg>>>HMMMMMMMMMM

Whats Jay Black doing this weekend? Any upcoming shows? Do I have to go to my psychic to find out furture show dates? Better yet just go to JAYANDTHEAMERICANS.COM and click on to showdates and they have a listing of all of their shows. Make sure you buy your tickets well enough in advance because they SELLOUT very quickly.
Yes, I see that Westhampton is sold-out but now there is a date posted for Bayshore in June. Cool!!!

Please tell me the last time Jay Black played to a packed house! Fans are starting to get disgusted that management is not posting all the so-called shows that Jay Black is performing, and I'm starting to agree with True Fan about going to a palm reader to find out where this shows are! The last time Jay Black has performed 40+ shows was back in the late 60's when he was still with the Americans. What's Jay Black doing these days-we like to know. So blow it out of your a** blog police and start being concerned about the furture of a FORMER legend and the lousy management that lies about show dates that just aren't there anymore.

Bayshore has 265 seats. That's less than a tenth the size of Westbury which Jay Black has sold out over 40 times. The other group can fool themselves all they want but the fans know the truth.

Jay's the only artist to have a website devoted to his current career not allowing his fans know where he plays. The new JATA had a billboard the size of a house off the 15 coming into Vegas and a website with dates. I'm in Florida March-April and want to see Jay. What do I do? Phone up newspapers? Italian social halls? This is ridiculous.

Yes Jay Black does sellout Westbury thanks to a large amount of give-a-ways through local radio staions. Besides Westbury where has Jay black sold out-I'd like to know! By the way, it can be 300 or 3000 and Jay and the americans are selling out almost every performance and that must tell the TRUE fans a alot by the great response they are getting. That business of Jay Black doing over 40+ shows in '07 is really far fetched, because outside of Westbury there is no great demand for Jay black anymore and Jason Stone (Jay's great manager-hmmmm) is having trouble finding him real shows in real places, not like Disneyworld where people don't give a crap who they see because it a free show! Last but not least, the answer why he doesn't promote his shows through his website is because there are not 40+ shows and management is embarassed by it and doesn't really know how to answer a simple thing like that! Just go to Jayandtheamericans.com and you will see REAL SHOWS LISTED!

Just saw Jay And The Americans tonight at their sold out Westhampton Beach show. JATA were excellent. The audience loved the show and gave them several standing ovations. WHB PAC is a beautiful theatre. It looked just like a first class Broadway musicial theatre. I am definitly going to see JATA again in June at the Boulton Center in Bayshore.

Jay Reincke is a Jay Black impersonator.
Doesn't make him better. I've heard some
of his singing on the net and believe Jay
Black IS better.

Jay Reinecke isn't great! He's just OK! He's old and never made it on his own until a couple of guys wanted him to impersonate Jay Black.

Thats how things start out idiot! How did Jay Black start out? He wasn't going anywhere being a SHOE SALESMAN! He is very lucky Jay Traynor-"The Original" left the group and his good friend Marty brought him in for an audition and thats how things start idiot. Jay Reincke has a very nice voice and if you think that he is too old at 52 you must have a brain of a 10 year old. Face it, Jay Black is on his way out and needs to do more shows than his manager is claiming.

Let me explain it this way moron. If there had not been a Jay Black Jay Reincke would still be laying carpets. If you can't understand that try asking one of your kids to explain it to you.

Concerned Fan , Boy that Jay Traynor must be great, he is 52 years old, so lets see, in 1963 when he left the band he would have been 7 years old, and you call other people stupid.
