Jay Schwartz




Jay Schwartz started playing guitar in the late sixties, and was influenced by the great rock players of that era, and the ‘underground’ FM radio stations of the day playing everything from rock, soul, blues, country and jazz. He also got a taste for the jazz standards heard on the family ‘hi-fi’. After playing in bands throughout the 80’s, he moved to California and spent his time with his growing family and career. Jay and family returned to Pa. in 1998, and after getting settled, he returned to his passion – playing music. After paying dues with other bands, good fortune prevailed and Jay was asked to join the Philly Party Band. It was a ‘no-brainer’. “This band is first-rate in every way. Talented musicians, skilled performers, great music and sound, superb management, and always fun!”
