Jay has performed with vocal groups including the All Ohio State Fair Choir and the original project Just Bob. He has performed the National Anthem for professional sporting events and many civic organizations.
Jay’s unique, powerful vocal abilities and showmanship are a crucial part of the Skinny Moo experience.
From a very young age, Jay got a taste of the spotlight and was hooked. His wide vocal range, celebrity impressions, comedy and sometimes misunderstood maniacal behavior make for limited edition performances each time Skinny Moo takes the stage. As quoted by Forest Gump (allegedly), "Jay is like a box of choc-o-lates, you never know whatchu gonna git!".
Jay started his musical career in an award-winning high school performing group which would later inspire the hit show "Glee" (allegedly). He was selected to perform in the prestigious All-Ohio State Fair Youth Choir. His first gig was fronting the original project Just Bob. The band performed throughout the Cleveland area for 4 years before disbanding. Jay has also had the privilege of performing the National Anthem at numerous professional athletic contests highlighted by a September 14, 2001 performance, just 3 days after the attacks on the US.
Jay's has also done studio work, contributing vocals for several of the legendary funktacular band drunkdude69’s albums.
In 2006, he co-wrote, produced and performed "In The Zone", an original theme for ESPN 850 WKNR Cleveland Sports talk show host Kenny Roda. In 2009, he co-wrote, produced and performed "Afternoon R&R", which aired every weekday on WKNR at 3pm. He and Scott also filmed and produced a video along with the two hosts that can be seen here. He's also co-written and performed numerous parodies for WQAL Q104's Morning Show.
