The Johnny Jay Band, Rock & Roll is what we play

Formed by London born singer Johnny Jay in July 2003, his Anglo/French Rock'n'Roll & Rhythm'n'Blues Dance combo "The Johnny Jay Band", have stormed onto the French Dance scene, playing over 200 gigs in two years! And with a brand new line up, new numbers and a new sound for 2006, The Johnny Jay Band sets new standards in Classic Rock'n'Roll!

Every number is a 50's classic, from Elvis, Jerry Lee, Chuck, Little Richard, Buddy etc. Every song hand picked to take you on a trip through time with a show that brings the past and present together for one great night! If you're not up and dancing, you're either tapping your feet or singing along... or both!

From Dance Halls to International Festivals, Johnny Jay's brand of 50's Rock'n'Roll & Rhythm'n'Blues has seduced thousands of fans in France and Europe. Born in the early sixties in London, Johnny Jay grew up in the multicultural district of Brixton, where he was influenced by Rock, Pop, Swing, Jazz, Gospel, Rhythm'n'Blues, Funk and Soul. Johnny uses all these influences as the Legends did in their time, in order to cook his own brand of Swinging Rock'n'Roll, with a sensual, rhythmic voice that showcases his Soul and jazz influences.
