Benton Harbor, MI

Two of the biggest American 1960’s hit makers live in concert -

With a staggering 18 charted hits and five Top 10 records, few bands ever reached the heights of JAY & THE AMERICANS. The group has been experiencing resurgence in their popularity after re-forming with three original members and returning to stages all over the country. "This Magic Moment," "Only in America," "Cara Mia," "Come a Little Bit Closer," "Some Enchanted Evening," "Let's Lock the Door," "Walkin' in the Rain," and more will be faithfully re-created, accompanied by a live rhythm section and brass section.  

GARY LEWIS & THE PLAYBOYS co-headline with equally impressive credentials of 8 gold singles, 4 gold albums, and a string of monster hits including “This Diamond Ring,” “She’s Just My Style,” “Count Me In,” “Everybody Loves a Clown,” and the list goes on. The band also made the transition to the silver screen, having appeared in several movies of the era. (It didn’t hurt that Gary’s father is comedy legend Jerry Lewis.)

Don’t miss this all-American rock-and-roll reunion with the artists who carried the American flag through the British Invasion and dominated the charts during the greatest era of American music ever - the sixties!
