Jay and the Americans Buy Back Name; Tour

The Americans: Howie Kane, Marty Sanders and Sandy Deanne started the group in the early 1960s, and earned back ownership of the name, “Jay and the Americans” after their second lead singer David Blatt sold it to them.

The new Jay is really named Jay, “Jay Reincke,” and he’s a Chicago guy.  On stage he’ll remind you of that nice high school guy who sang lead in choir and was kind enough to carry your books home while helping you practice your Spanish homework.  (At one time, Jay was a Spanish teacher!)

As for the animals, when he’s not singing or writing songs with folks like Joan Jett, Marty Sanders is often called to rescue snakes on construction sites.  Recently he appeared on Duncan Strauss’ well-planned, crafted and performed radio show, TALKING ANIMALS on WMNF-Tampa.  Listen to the show at http://www.talkinganimals.net/archives_synopses_08.html#020608 .
