Jay Siegel’s Tokens are truly one of pop music’s most versatile, talented and enduring groups. Ever since their first hit single in 1961, The Tokens have remained popular with generation after generation.

“Tonight I Fell In Love” introduced the world to the irresistible harmonies of The Tokens and gave the group their first hit, climbing to #15 on the pop charts. Soon after, the group landed at #1 with their signature song, “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” More than 30 years later, that song returned to the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart in August of 1994, making it the second-longest chart span in the rock era. Featured in the Disney motion picture “The Lion King,” the success of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” prompted RCA to re-release “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” and a CD featuring a unique compilation of twenty of The Tokens’ earlier tunes. It gives their fans a rare opportunity to enjoy many of the songs The Tokens wrote more than thirty years ago, as well as songs popularized by other artists which The Tokens later recorded in their own distinctive style.
That style and sound is elegantly defined by Jay Siegel, original lead singer & founding member of The Tokens whose tenor lead and trademark falsetto have characterized all of The Tokens’ music since the group began recording, and continues to do so today as Jay Siegel’s Tokens (with Bill Reid & Kurt Yaghjian) perform around the country.

While dyed-in-the-wool Tokens fans know that Jay had always sung on the group’s hits (including, among many others, “Tonight I Fell In Love,” “Portrait Of My Love,” “La Bamba,” “B’wanina,” “He’s In Town,” “She Lets Her Hair Down,” “I Hear Trumpets Blow” and “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”), few know that he had a hand in writing many of them and even more may not be aware of the number of hats he wore throughout the group’s career.

The Tokens were one of the first independent, not to mention youngest, teams to produce recordings for a major label, breaking into the really big-time in 1962 when they became the first vocal group to produce a #1 record for another vocal group with “He’s So Fine” by The Chiffons. It was just the first of many smash hits Jay Siegel and his group had a hand in producing. They became the production geniuses behind numerous other hits by The Chiffons, as well as the biggest hits by Tony Orlando and Dawn, The Happenings, Randy and the Rainbows and Robert John. He and The Tokens also sang backup vocals for such diverse artists as Del Shannon, Melissa Manchester, Connie Francis, The Blues Project, Keith, Mac Davis, Al Kooper & Bob Dylan. The Tokens were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall Of Fame in 2004. Also members of The Doo Wop Hall of Fame & The Long Island Hall Of Fame. They’ve appeared on stage with The Beatles, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Simon & Garfunkel, The Temptations, The 4 Tops & all the icons of Rock N’ Roll.

Besides leaving their imprint on the pop music scene as singers, songwriters, arrangers, producers, and record executives, The Tokens were successes as writers, producers, and singers in the commercial realm, reminding us that “Pan Am makes the going great…,” “Ban won’t wear off as the day…” and that Chesterfields are a “Silly Millimeter Longer.” They were also the voices for Clairol, General Foods, Wrigley’s gum, Eastern, TWA & United Airlines, Cool Whip, Etch A Sketch, Wendy’s. KFC, & Sleep Number Bed.

Today, Jay Siegel’s Tokens continue to tour the world, bringing their classic sound and timeless hits to fans both old and new. JAYSIEGELSTOKENS.COM

Jeff Norris is without question one of the funniest guys out there today.” -Joe Piscopo, Actor/Comedian

Jeff Norris is an energetic whirlwind of comedy. He is a favorite in both Atlantic City and Vegas. He has also most recently partnered with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. Over the years, Jeff has appeared on numerous TV and film roles including HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and OZ, Good Morning America, My Super-Ex Girlfriend, and Not Fade Away.

“Jeff is one of the funniest stand-up comedians I’ve ever seen.” -Craig Carton, WFAN’s Boomer & Carton Show

Jeff is one of the most quick-witted acts working today–hardly pausing for a breath as he tears through his act, keeping the audience alert and in stitches from beginning to end. Jeff has been called a complete pro–one of the few remaining comics that understands the importance of showmanship and presentation.

Jeff works tirelessly in support of many charities and fundraising events. Jeff has helped raise more than $180,000 for the victims of Hurricane Sandy and more than $150,000 for the K9s for Warriors whose mission is to aid those warriors suffering from PTSD. In addition to the multiple groups he supports, Jeff was recently recognized by the NJ State Police for his work in support of the Troopers Assisting Troops for Wounded Warriors (the T.A.T. Program).

God said, “Adam, I want you to do something for Me.”

Adam said, “Gladly, Lord, what do You want me to do?”

God said, “Go down into that valley.”

Adam said, “What’s a valley?”

God explained it to him.

Then God said, “Cross the river..”

Adam said, “What’s a river?”

God explained that to him, and then said, “Go over to the hill…..”

Adam said,”What is a hill?”

So, God explained to Adam what a hill was. He told Adam, “On the other side of the
hill you will find a cave.”

Adam said, ‘What’s a cave?’

After God explained, He said, “In the cave you will find a woman.”

Adam said, “What’s a woman?’

So God explained that to him, too. Then, God said, ‘I want you to reproduce.”

Adam said, “How do I do that?”

God first said (under
His breath), “Geez…..” And then, just like everything else, God explained that to
Adam, as well.

So, Adam goes down into the valley, across the river, and over the hill, into the
cave, and finds the woman.

Then, in
about five minutes, he was back.

God, His patience wearing thin, said angrily, “What is it now?”

And Adam said….

Hot off another killer spot on Conan (where he is one of Conan O’Brien’s favorites guests), comedian Dan Naturman – who is also known to his fans as the “real winner” of NBC’s Last Comic Standing 2, where he was the favorite of celebrity “judges” Drew Carey and Brett Butler – will be perfoming live at the Mizner Park Cultural Center!

Dan began performing stand-up comedy several years ago in, believe it or not, law school. After graduation, he decided to devote himself to stand-up full time. Comedy, he discovered, was his true passion. Besides, his grades were bad and nobody would hire him. Dan’s charming combination of self-deprecation and outright grouchiness has had audiences howling from coast to coast and has earned him four appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Tonight Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, his own “Comedy Central Presents…” Special, and a starring run on NBC’s America’s Got Talent. Currently, Dan has a recurring role on HBO’s newest hit, “Crashing” and multiple appearances on Comedy Central’s “This Week at The Comedy Cellar.” More great comedy to follow – that you can be sure of!
