I remember seeing You at "The Light House" in So. Calif. A friend asked if he could sit in and You let him play along on the drums for 4 songs. Later I saw You at Pepe's & also Salvatore's in So. Calif. The day of "The Battle of The Bands" with You, Joe Huston, and Chuck Higgins was awesome. We loved when You played Honky Tonk and walked around to each table and even outside. Saw You at Catalina Island too. One time You were at another gig and Richard Berry played in Your place. I got to meet him that night and it was an honor. Also saw him at The Century Room in Los Angeles Years and years ago. I now live in Las Vegas and I sure wish You did shows here, I will always be a fan. Jim
Big JayIn 1953, I was four years old when I heard my older brothers and their buddies blow some rock and some blues at our house. And one of my favorite numbers was Pachuco Hop which they told me you did. Sure would like to hear it again!

Great to see you are still out on tour. First saw a very memorable appearance at an indoor concert in Stockton in 1954 and another at the Garden Stage on the MJF grounds in '96. Both just like yesterday. Thanks.
Been a fan since I heard your version of (There is) Something On Your Mind (better than Ivory Joe's) - hooked me. This was working in a Mom-n-Pop record store in SE PA.
Is you playin' in the LA area soon? Seeing you performing is on my bucket list.
Big Jay played in Melbourne, Australia, this past weekend.Saw him yesterday at the Williamstown RSL Club - still 'blowin' his brains out' - what a concert!!Thanks Big Jay!
Just witnessed and participated ( I came up and sat on your knee whilst you sang & played) in your amazing gig at Williamstown RSL in Melbourne. You certainly rock!Loved it!XX

Hello, Big Jay,Saw you at the Viva Cantina tonight. (I came up on stage and my friend took a picture of you and me, then I bought one of your cd's, with "There is Something on your Mind" on it. It made me feel younger seeing that you are 85 and still rockin'! (I'm 65) Saw you about 25 years ago at some theatre in L.A. and you walked around the audience blowing your sax. I believe Mickey Champion sang there, too. (My memory for details is shot!)Just wanted to say that you are still amazing and I will be bringing folks to see you if I am able (I am battling cancer). I believe you, too, are Christian, and ask that you pray for me....with God's help I might make it to 85 also.Bless you and keep on honking! Hope to see you again soon!Daphne
