    Jay will come play a solo show at your house. Wanna hear some cover songs as well as originals? Jay played in the Kingpins bowling alley piano bar every Wednesday for a year- he can learn a cover. Must be in the Athens/Atlanta Georgia area, unless you wanna pony up for travel expenses, in which case Jay will play pretty much anywhere!
