The Jay Vons
Brothers and Sisters, to witness The Jay Vons in action is to believe. A personal appearance by The Jay Vons is a "happening." The stage lights pop on. Suddenly music explodes alive and present. Soon the beats into you, penetrating skull and belly. Something inside has got to move. You notice this group: clean cut – groomed hair – neat. Their steps are smooth and graceful. Thumping on his custom Harmony bass ax is Benny Trokan. His insistent bottom sound produces The Jay Vons' trademark: heavy, driving rhythm. Banging away on drums is Mikey (Custodian of Soul) Post. He keeps two things working: mouth and drums. That haunting, ever-riding whang comes from the unique lead guitar of Mike "the Cat" Catanese. On organ is Dave Amels. Personable, strong and seasoned, Dave's forte is the hurting kind. Lead vocals rotate between Ben and Mike, but sometimes Mikey is given a well-deserved solo spot. Their songs would best be described as danceable heartbreakers. As you shuffle across the floor your eyes will fill with tears. On their forth-coming single "Days Undone" B/W "Never Take me Back" (Cryptovision Records) you will notice that The Jay Vons sound on-stage just like their records. They use no studio musicians. They are what they are.
