About: Jay Abo oozes blues. He is a singer/songwriter whose key influence is John Mayer, and we can tell. The way Jay gently plays his guitar with that soulful touch is mesmerizing, never mind the fact that he has one of the smoothest voices we have ever heard.
He recently finished in the top 3 acts at the Yasalam Emerging Talent Competition and lost by a hair but no worries, his following and popularity grew more and more. Jay Abo is an extremely talented musician that is going places with his music and more and more people are starting to take notice. We’re lucky to have him here in the city and even luckier that he enjoys playing for us.
What he plays: A giant arsenal of blues covers and originals.
Most often plays at: Tribeca (Ocean View hotel, JBR), Jazz @ Pizza Express and The Gramercy
